Redefine Today

a pursuit to be a better man

To the Future Me and My Future Children.

Although I can’t imagine having a child right now, I hope to one day be a good father.

So with that I hope to keep this post in mind when I get older.

To the Youth.

 

For the youth dealing with the college acceptance process.  It really comes down to personal character and drive.  Do what you want, pursue your interests and develop yourself.

Off My @ss and Do Something

The important thing is this: to be able at any moment to sacrifice what we are for what we could become”

Meh.

In the past week or so I’ve found myself coming home exhausted and mentally drained, unable to do anything but stuff my face and rot my mind with television.  Aside from attending my regular meetings that require my physical and mental presence I can hardly pull myself to do anything productive.   However I understand that there must be lows for there to be highs.

So with that in mind, I will use this time to rest and recuperate.  Come Monday I will kick myself into shape.  When was your last slump?  How do you get over it?

Update

In the two weeks since my last post I’ve have been juggling several facets of my personal life that includes my personal relationships, some dedicated time for two non-profits and my full time position at work.  It hasn’t been easy and very much like any other experiences there has been both highs and lows.  I will try better to plan ahead and ensure that I keep regular posts when I foresee another schedule intense season comes rolling in.

I’ve changed and updated the theme since the previous template had some conflicts with my web browser.

Most Astounding Fact – Neil DeGrasee Tyson

 

“So that when I look up at the night sky and I know that yes, we are part of this universe, we are in this universe.  But perhaps more important than both of those facts, is that the universe is in us.  When I reflect on that fact… I feel big. – Neil DeGrasse Tyson

Warrior

If you haven’t seen the movie Warrior, do it. It’s a family drama about two estranged brothers, Tommy Conlon (Tom Hardy) and Brendan Conlon (Joel Edgerton) that end up facing off for the grand prize in a winner-takes-all mixed martial arts tournament. Each with their own reasons to fight and their own trials and tribulations to overcome. The most captivating part of the movie is the development of the characters and their relationships. There are no villain or heroes only real people living with their own demons.

I will be following up with this short post with some important values and lessons I was able to take away from this movie.
