This is what I believe

The other day I watched a TED talks video that really caught my attention. TED is a nonprofit devoted to the cultivation of ideas and it contains some of the most inspirational speeches I’ve ever seen.

The video I watched was a presentation given by author Simon Sinek. Simon talks about the importance of explaining “why” whether as a person, a product, or a company. The reason is deep down people want to know what your purpose is. Even more so, they want to know your beliefs driving that purpose.

The Best Bucket List Ever

It’s funny how things change as you get older. I’ve been so busy this year that I almost forgot my own birthday. I’ll be turning the ripe old age of 26. So what does it really mean to turn 26? Well, I’m past half way to qualifying as a classic car, if I was an NFL running back I’d just be hitting my prime, and I’m officially overdue for my quarter life crisis.

I decided this would be the perfect time to create my own bucket list. Not just any bucket list though, but The Best Bucket List Ever (don’t judge, you know you like the title.) I figure it’ll be a great reminder of all the things I still need to accomplish.

The Year in Review & My Farewell to Charleston

I definitely have a “live life at the extremes” type of mentality. What does this normally include? A life filled with plenty of laughter, a few tears, incredible friends, a lack of sleep, and a seemingly endless amount of crazy stories.

When Life Kicks, It Kicks Hard

Let’s face it, sometimes life just dumps on you. I’m not talking about a few normal day-to-day issues either. I’m talking about hitting rock bottom…and then tunneling under it…where you somehow fall into a deep mine shaft…which is inexplicably layered with quicksand at the bottom.
