I took a few days off. I needed to clear my head and try to look at the world from a new perspective.

We all bear crosses. Some are obvious, some are hidden. In the end, we must not make decisions based purely on what we think is logical, but what is in our hearts. Things may get complicated, but we have to dig deep and really ask ourselves what matters.

You have this life to live, and you only have one shot at it. How are you going to live it? I truly believe that within the depths of my chest there is a voice guiding me to the right decisions…to the right words…to the right feelings.

We are all given something incredibly special. Choice. We can choose to be anything we want to in our lives. This “choice” I feel often gets overlooked because we make things more complicated than they should be. What makes choices easier is when you know what you stand for. Love. Passion. Never Quit. These words guide my moral compass…and they have turned me into the man I am today. I will continue to let them guide me.

We all have hardships in our lives. We are going to be faced with what seems to be insurmountable obstacles. We will pretend that what is confronting us is an unstoppable force. But in reality, there is always another perspective, always another view…and in the end, there is always a choice.
