As I think about life, and what I want to accomplish in life, I really don’t know. There are a lot of things I’d like to do, to learn, and in my own way, to teach. I’ve learned a lot over the years, starting out in school, moving on through life and work. I’ve learned lessons in school, in work, in love, and in family. I’ve grown through trials and service, I’ve shrunk in selfishness, and been able to rise again.
This blog, this site, and this project is to help me get thoughts out for my kids, for my family, and in the hope that something I’ve learned might help someone else out there. We are all on this journey together, and all are trying to get where we want to go.
So where do I want to go? I want to be a good, active father to my girls, a good strong husband to my wife, and financially independent. I want to be free to live, to experience, to master things in my life. Being a polymath, someone who is an expert in many fields, is one of my dreams. I love learning, and have developed a healthy appetite for information, from all sorts of angles and views. I’m decidedly strong in my beliefs, but try to view the thoughts and beliefs of others as they would like me to see them.
I get angry, frustrated, and loud easily. I have a strong, dominant personality, and I think that everything I say is the truth, and incontrovertible. I’m pretty honest, and will say what I mean, with little finesse or sugar-coating. In fact, I’ve been described as blunt.
I hope to be able to verbalize things that don’t make sense, make sense of things that are confusing, and learn along the way. Eventually, maybe I’ll be able to meet people I hold in high regard, and learn from them, to find out what makes them able to overcome their weakness, their imperfections, and to be able to share my new found knowledge with you, whoever is reading this.
Please feel free to contact me, or to join in my journey. Thank you!
