If you saw The Godfather then you remember how everyone in the family looked at young Michael Corleone. He wasn’t like everyone else in the family. He wanted nothing to do with the family business and he refused to go to college like his father (The Don Corleone) insisted. He instead chose to join the military. He was determined to write his own story.
But when his father was almost murdered by his criminal adversaries, and laid in the hospital as a sitting duck, Michael stepped up. And when it came time to handle business in the realest way possible with a crooked cop, Michael made the ultimate sacrifice. He gave away his innocence. He was a good guy turned assassin. Just like that. In the blink of any eye, with one decision, his life and the legacy of the Corleone family would change forever.
“It’s not personal Sonny. It’s strictly business.”

is something I marvel over each and every day. Multiple times.

Twitter account. To each his/her own. But it’s my humble opinion that it’s def better to be alone than to be with people who ain’t shit. It’s even better to build your own circle of influence or at least identify one that you belong to.
Relationships.....worth the discussion.
Yesterday she discovered #BabyShark
and we sang it and smiled and laughed until she fell asleep in my arms. 🙏🏼❤️🙏🏼
I was a lot of things 10, 5, or even 1 year ago. And to be honest, now that my daughter is here I’m changing more everyday. And sometimes it’s painful. But most of the time it’s just a fucking relief!
I don’t have to be what I was then. I can break bad habits, I can have new interests, I can pursue a different career, side hustle or start a new business that has nothing to do with my past.
We’re not obligated to be what we were. Sure some people will be disappointed or whatever. But such is life.
Don’t let what you were yesterday hold you hostage from the opportunity in front of you today.
If there’s anything more precious, I don’t want to know. I don’t think my heart could take it.
The light of my of my life being held by the light of my life. ❤️🦄
Just be mindful. Make sure you’re focusing on what’s important to you. There are huge businesses and brands spending billions of dollars to attract and maintain your attention. Be mindful. Protect your focus and your peace.
When’s the last time you checked your “screen time” in your settings? Are you spending too much time and too much ATTENTION on mindless activities? Who benefits the most from the way you spend your time and attention? Is it you???
There’s a lesson here for us all. This lesson isn’t just for this kid, or kids in general and it’s not just about martial arts. It’s about life and dealing with anxiety and keeping your eyes on what matters and not the distractions.
What will a daddy do for his daughter?
Whatever it takes.
