I Can't Get Out of Bed

You ever have those days where you couldn’t get out of bed to save your life? This morning I had an alarm set for 6:30 am. Sounds kind of early depending who you are, but since I was going to be at around 10 pm the night before, this was a more than reasonable time. I wanted to get up, do some writing, maybe a quick workout and then start my long day of yardwork that I got coming. And I have always been really good and dedicated and getting up early when I need to in the past, but today and for the past 2 weeks, that has not been the story. Every morning I roll over barely half...

The World Gives Opportunities Not Handouts

The world gives opportunities not handouts.  I came back home to the West side just the other day in my beat up Buick Regal I named Bethany. She is an 01 with around 160,000 miles on her but still runs pretty good. And although it’s not the “coolest” looking car ( meaning its a straight up grandpa whip), it was a gift and to be honest, I can’t afford to even look at a different car. That little silver Buick Regal has gotten me all over Washington State from Longview to Spokane and has made multiple trips over the mountain pass. It is reliable in every sense of the word despite being old. Over the last almost 3 years I...

The Magic of Creativity

There is something inherently amazing about the human ability to create.  I have always been obsessed with creating things. Whether it’s art, clothes, custom shoes, content or even a home movie, I love to conceptualize something in my mind and make it come to life.  When I was young I spent hours upon hours learning to draw. I would buy (or rather my parents would buy for me) drawing tutorial books from the toy section of the grocery store and I would try to memorize how to draw people like Batman and Joker. Most often this meant I would tear out the pages and trace over them on the back window, but either way, I was still creating something.  Soon...

What's Your Purpose?

I’ll keep this short and simple because I think often we make this concept of “purpose” way too complex and scary.  Hi. My name is Jared. I am 20 years old and I don’t really know what my purpose is.  I guess I thought by the time I got this “old” that I would have a really solid idea of what I want to do with my life. I would have a plan and a why and be so ready to attack life, yet now, I feel more confused than ever.  I continually change my mind and switch up what I want to do. With all of this change I often find myself feeling lost and when I do, I...

There's Not Enough Time in the Day

 So often we get stuck feeling like we have to fill our schedules to feel like we’re actually doing something but I kinda think that’s a load of (pardon my French) bull poop.  Don’t spend your time acting busy or doing tasks all the time you hate, ENJOY YOUR DAY. It’s not that there’s not enough time in your day, you’re just not spending it the way you want.
