The TL/DR Version
"Good Boy Heart w/ Bad Boy Charm"

A friend once said, "You are an enigma". I asked why, she said:

  • My friends will be jealous of the things we do.
  • My mother will love you because she doesn't know all the things we do.
  • My father will murder you if he knew some of the things we do.

I don't think that's 100% accurate, but it is funny.

In a lot of ways, I am not a role model:

  • I do a lot of things wrong – repeatedly;
  • I forget things – important things;
  • I remember things – stupid things;

But in a few ways, I think I am a pretty good person. I am my own person — I have been for most of my adult life, and I’m not going to stop being unique. In a world of snowflakes, I haven’t found anyone like me – that’s probably a good thing. I like that about me.

I have almost no filter, and I am very uninhibited. I think it provides a freedom that we don’t get very often today.

I was once provided a description of myself as a reminder as to who I am (because like everyone does, I get lost from time to time):

'A man who knows there has to be more. The man who can preach his heart of belief in what can be, of spirituality and man, of life and how to live it.

A heart of value, a mind of never ending fascinations, curiosities, excitements and ideas. The entertainer who doesn’t act for others, but instead acts for the pleasure of the challenge and artistry of performance.'

At the end of the day, I want to make the most out of life that I can. I find that challenges teach you more about the world, about yourself and about the limits you can endure. Hopefully, you’ll be better for it. In other words, try anything and everything at least twice — and enjoy the ride.
