"...don’t stand so close to me"

Fellas...keep your goddamned dicks, hands, and thoughts to yourself unless you’ve explicit verbal consent of your advances. It’s pretty cut and dried boys. You need to discuss these things with those you have an interest with. If they don’t want your shit in their lives, move your shit along to someone else. Drop the attitude about rejection, and put some shoulder into the work of grooming yourself to be a good guy. The more conversations you have with the girl of your affection, the more aware you become of what’s important to her. This is the process for building better people. Engage the girls of your life with the best actual version of yourself. #wecandobetter

". . . down home country"

There’s a singular sound exemplified in the human spirit. The tone of connection and hope rings throughout humanity. We revel in the harmony of love and happiness ❤️ Reaching toward the depths of someone’s story, to share in their disguised vulnerability, represents the truth of why we love. Absent of its presence, we stumble over the regret. lining of the vacuum left behind. Peace never rests upon this void. Love for all the right reasons, forgive for the unfortunate times, and forget the pain we share today. We feel the best of life, and cry over the heartache. Learn to recover from the rejection, and the acceptance left behind is all  yours.

". . . peace beneath salsa"

Every day gives me hope to improve myself. There’s every reason in the world to strive for being bigger than I was today. Gratitude is centered within respect of the way we help others. Shame is the absence of effort, not in the results. 



That sharp edge of my thirties and forties has faded half way into my fifties. I no longer have mountains to conquer, but valleys to tend. I’m done wrecklessly acquiring stuff, it’s time to chase experiences. Tending to a more personal aspect of living a full life. Feeling my spot in the universe, holding my place in time. This transformation of attitudes just drifts across us as we ripen with the years of experiences. Embracing the moments rather than looking beyond them for more. Connected to the people you hold dearly next to your heart. Sharing as much of your life as humanly possible, leaving the best of yourself upon everyone you touch. Making the world a little better than you found it. 

“...waiting on the day to awaken”

I work on becoming a more compassionate individual. Tolerance through compassion is a better path than the ones of the past. We can do better, and I expect us to do better. My tolerance and compassion are mine to honor and direct, as to not get confused by others suggestions. I alone must choose to be in the presence of every remaining moments of my life. Leave nothing behind to regret not experiencing. 

“...where’s the gentle?”

I’ve promised to try and be less of an ass in the future, that’s pushing me to work on softening up some. For Christ sakes, look at the name on the blog...duh? All kidding aside, just trying to get as much love out life as it can offer me. Maturing is the process of self discovery, the identification for the need for personal growth. No one ever truly arrives at their best self, the capacity to grow continually advances with human discovery all around us. Defining what’s important to you at the different stages of life helps motivate the growth behind change. Therefore...we’re always approaching something 😎
