Life is all about dreams and making them come true. For my friend, Dr. Coyte G. Cooper, a bestselling author of the books: IMPRESSIONS and MAKE YOUR MARK and renown life coach, his dream was to be a speaker for a Ted Talk Seminar.

Come August, my friend will see that dream come true and being a god friend, my son, Lynden and I are gong to travel to Columbus, Ohio and support Coyte all the way as he brings his A-Game to Ohio to inspire others.

Combine that with my trip to Chicago this September, which I am also taking Lynden, I am very proud to know that I am giving my 13 year old son a chance to see so many positive experiences and hope they leave a inspiring mark on his already budding outlook on life.

Never be afraid to better yourself. Here’s to the future, mine and yours!!

Great Column!

Today’s column is one that I loved writing. Now, I love them all, but this was a story of a woman who found an expensive earring while on a walk in the city. She finds a man who is barely getting by, and because she wants to help him, gives him the earring because she already has a comfortable life. The man walks away with his prayers answered. However, he returns to the woman and says that he cannot accept the earring. The woman is shocked and asked why. The man said what he really wanted was the character that the woman had that allowed her to give the expensive earring to him in the first place!

Kindness is a character trait and one that pays off far more than just in terms of money. Have a great Friday ahead and spread kindness around like confetti!

2011

As Christmas draws near, I am reminded daily that it will be my first holiday season single since 2001. I must say I am alright with that thinks in part to three amazing sons and some friends that have been great to me over 2011. As I sit at my computer I wonder a lot about my future and just who will be in it. If 2011 has taught me anything, it is that I can take the hits, I have too. I think we all have to in our own ways? I would be lying if I said I didn’t miss having a woman in my life, good or bad, we men need that social connection from the opposite sex. This time around, I find myself being particularly selective, not because there is simply no one knocking at my door where I live, but rather because I really have been a selective type of guy. I refuse to settle for someone simply because I am getting a slight bit lonely around the holidays. Since my separation early this year, I did ask two women out, and in both occasions I was met with less than mature responses to which I crack a smile and simply say “On and up”. I want mature, I want funny, I want responsible, I want sweet to look at, I want goal oriented, I want faithful, I want open and honest,I want a friend, a mom and (down the road) a wife. 

I can say that I learned more this year than I have in any years past. I learned just how resilient I was. I learned that I could live out of my car, I learned that I could finish my fourth novel. I learned I have a handful of great friends. I walk into 2012 with three amazing sons. Three young boys who fill me with hope and a fresh outlook. It is because of my sons that I can not and will not settle for the first thing to come along. They deserve better and so do I.

I am getting so tired, so it is time to hit the sack. But I will say, I will find that certain someone out there, I will sell my stories and they will be hits, my sons will be happy and so will I. And to that almighty thing we all call ‘Life’ I say, “I will wipe my blood away and live to fight another day…”
