I’m not the typical person you would meet on a daily basis. I’m the “cup is half full” type of guy, but I’m often skeptical when it comes to others. I constantly evaluate my situation and those around me, because it gives my mind something to do. While my hands are occupied, I often tend to think of the next outcome for tomorrow, because it makes it that much more exciting. At the same time, I maintain a clear conscience to allow free processing of the task at hand.
I like being truthful on a personal level. If I never lie to to you, you can always trust me to tell the truth. I am openly honest, because I truly believe truth trumps all lies. At the same time, because of this, I am often blunt and found to be offensive without any thought on what was said. I mean, if it wasn’t true, then it wouldn’t hurt. This also makes me truly apologetic, if I do offend somehow.
I would say I’m misunderstood, but that’s a safe word to call it. My humor and knowledge collide when I speak, making it difficult for anyone to distinguish whether I’m being serious or funny. I guess it could be both – they call it sarcasm I suppose (there’s also a profane term for it), but I do have the most earnest intentions, either way.
I love to see people flourish, when they’re down on wits end. I realize there are situations out of our control and we always need someone to listen. I do that. I give good advice. I even go out of my way to make sure you’re on the right track before I leave your side. After I’m gone, it only takes a tap on the shoulder to gain my attention again.
Life brings many wonders, and no one has the capacity to experience them all. I have been places people only dream of going, yet I still dream of going elsewhere. My interests vary from cultural differences to atomic energy to raw entertainment to difficulties in relationships to culinary activities, but nothing is as insanely interesting and more unpredictable than life itself.
I’m what you would call a “Jack-of-all-trades”. I’ve spent most of my life doing things for the experience, erratically jumping to and fro. Although, I’ve nearly excelled at almost everything I’ve done, scrupulous to some point, it was never something I’ve always wanted to do. I did it all just to get by (because that’s what we’re taught in school). Yet, all I’m limited to do for now is continue the insanity, living life like a regular human being.
I’ve always had many aspirations and I’ve failed to do anything with them until now. Now of all times, why wasn’t it sooner? The only one keeping me from moving forward, was me. Fear of acceptance. Fear of approval. Fear that I’ll never live up to who I want to be. But it’s funny when you think about it, because it’s always something you view from others, that inspire you to do what you’re meant to do. Those who do these things well are fearless.
I guess that’s why I’m truly doing this. It’s not because I want to make something of myself, it’s because I want to be an inspiration to others as well. And through my art, my vision, and my literature, I can and will accomplish this. I can do this because I am an illustrator, a photographer, an author, a life coach, a friend, a father and a husband. I’ve lived my life, so now it’s time to give back. Please feel free to follow my blog of inspiration.
