How do you celebrate your birthday? Me? I get the chance to write about what LIFE means to me on my beautiful wife’s website. First off I want to thank my wife for letting me take over today for my birthday and just share my feelings on my birthday. There is a song out that I really like called, “Living My Best Life” and the reason why I like it is because it made me think about what is LIFE really about.
Living for others:
In many different times, we go through selfish stages. We want everything to be all about me me me especially on our birthdays. A little over four years ago, I married my best friend and two years after that we grew our family with our son Bailyr and they made me realize my life isn’t all about me. I have begun to lead by example in my marriage, and give my son an opportunity at something I never had and that was a father raising him under one roof with his mother.
I’m turning 30 today, and the older I get I notice that people are really watching me. Not in a sense like I’m this big “famous person” or such a huge name, I mean more like watch how fun a marriage can be, and how cool it is to be a family man. When someone looks at me, I hope they see a man that wants to influence them to do things that may not be the most “lit” thing but something that carries substance and can be something they look forward to as they settle down.
Fulfill purpose on earth:
Why am I here.? I wrote out ten goals at age 25, and I accomplished seven of them. Throughout those five years, there has been many hardships that have came my way, but the people around me have kept me encouraged and I have pushed myself through it all. On the other side, I have had many blessings come my way that has made my life even better. As I go into my 30s, I want to continue to find my way and path in life because I know it’s meant to help so many people, learn from others, and teach people some of the things that I learned along the way.
Just because I’m turning 30 doesn’t make me old! 30 is the new 20, and that means I’m ready to take the next step on more new things in my life. Traveling has always been something I wanted to do ever since I was in high school. I want to also take more risk in my life, but also understand when God tells me to move and not be scared. If you’re reading this, thank you so much for supporting my wife and I. This website has been huge for us and I think she is one of the best at what she does. We have so many more things in store so stay tuned.!
