What Happened to Sean Paul? personal story random thoughts Jan 24, 2022

During those high school days, Sean Paul was the only excuse guys had to go near a female. Oh man, if only there were decent cameras back then (thank God there wasn't) and you would see the footage of high school teens just grinding it out on the dance floor to "Temperature" or "Get Busy" until...

There was no time for a blog post yesterday man! It's the Sabbath, although who really 'rests' on Sundays. Actually, nvm, a lot of people do. I wasn't raised with this idea of 'rest' on weekends or really. . .ever.

Dear Sensitive Men advice mental health Jan 15, 2022

There's a pretty big misconception about sensitive men. I would consider myself sensitive to the environment and people around me, having that permeable shell which helps me understand what people are going through and what they need in the moment. This is such a blessing in the work I do not...

I Feel Amazing Today! advice personal story Jan 11, 2022
