So I've seen a lot of my close friends post stuff about staying positive and spreading as much happiness as possible through their pages, and that truly is a special idea. But for me, personally, I think I need to display more positivity in my life. I'm gonna spread more happiness around. Compliments, including people, making sure people who are down understand they've got someone to rely on. If I compliment you, it's genuine. That's my goal for this year. Sorta random but I figured I'd let Everyone have some context 🙂
Some of the lessons you gave me came through stories. Stories about your childhood and past, mostly of what not to be and what not to do. Sometimes it was some song that I'd never heard that had some deep meaning behind it. Sometimes it was just going out to eat and laughing so hard I cried because you were that funny. On occasion, you just sat me down and told me how things were going to work. The last thing you ever taught me, intentionally or not, was strength. As hard as it is, I have to be strong enough for myself and the people, important people, that rely on me. You would've been an entire 41 years old, still would've had that childish humor but that quick Witted response ready. I miss you more and more as time goes on. As it passes, I realize I'm without certain things I had every single day. I took them for granted. I never thought I'd lose the one person I had for absolutely anything and everything. I love you Dad. Happy Birthday.
"Peace, I leave with you; my peace, I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid." John 14:27. (My photographer said "Hey, look at your mom real quick" and then took a picture of my reaction 😊)
"Know your girl want it but I ain't tryna tempt her, need my money now like I'm JG Wentworth. Girl that does it, yea that does it, posted with your auntie and your sister and your cousin." Shoutout to Yung Gravy for the lyrics😂💯
Nobody lives a perfect life, but it's obvious that some people have it way harder than others. One thing I've learned is that no matter what conversation you had, whoever you missed, no matter what assignment you forgot about or who you argue with, the Sun still rises the next day. Life goes forward, and it's got a funny way of always letting things somewhat workout. Keep your head up, tomorrow isn't as far away as you think.
I was gonna something about this being my squad blah blah but it kinda hit me.. This isn't just another group of friends. These dudes have known each other for years and I'm just the new guy who drives, but these type of people don't go away. They don't change, they don't switch up, they don't turn their backs on people. These guys are like literal brothers to me and that doesn't seem to be something that's gonna change. 💯🔥
All I can say is how much I appreciate you guys. You all have quickly become my two closest friends through the times I've been alone until the times we've all had those deep conversations at night. You both have impacted my life so much in the short time we've been friends and like I said, you all are the two closest people I have. You all are great people, just wanted to let ya know 🔥
I miss you more and more everyday..
It's a new Beginning for us brother. It took this long but I'm sure you feel the same thing I do. We're getting older, making larger decisions, have our future careers very close to us. After three years we know just about everything about each other, we know how we react, we know how we feel and relate to things, we're almost the exact same person. For three years you've carried me through my Dad dying, low areas of depression, we've argued and fought, we've resolved and backed each other up.. How many times have we said it now? It's us against the world bud. I wouldn't, couldn't dream of a better best friend to go through life with. I appreciate you Nathan.
"Oh, sorry, you caught me off guard😉" Is what I SHOULD have said before Nate took this. 😂
I'm 18 as of today, he's 18 as of next February, it's kinda like I'm supervising him. Actually I've been supervising him for three years now, he just won't let himself accept it. Thanks for sticking by me all this time bud and making sure I keep my head above water. Even if, ya know... You get mean sometimes. 🙃😉😂😂
Not exactly single, but how I'm still single I have no clue 😂😂😂 I'm just too good at what I do. Besides running. My hamstring isn't doing all that great. 💯
I need a haircut, an attitude check, more money, less stress, a new hamstring, and less school. But for now, I'm gonna take what I have right now, and let the rest fix itself. 😂😇💯
Major throwback to me Cheesing hard. 😂 Looked pretty good too, for once in my life right?
Just a small collection I saw in my gallery that I decided to do something with. I definitely miss the old days. I miss my dad more than anything in this world, I miss our old group, not that it's changed too much or badly, I just miss the memories. I miss the stress free relationship I used to have with my family, the times when we'd go months on months without fighting, not weeks. I miss the times before the stress and depression that is life, that is loss, and the worry free life I used to live. I don't expect anyone to read all that, I'm just getting my thoughts out. I love every single one of you guys in those pics, and especially ones that aren't in there. Ian, Bloomer, Otto, Wallis, all of you guys. You're family to me, almost all the family I have, and.. I'm not sure I'd want it any other way.
I'm doing alright. I won't say good, or great, but I'm hanging in there. I'm fighting, and that's about all I can say. 🔥
