Open your heart and read these four things. Then take five minutes to truly reflect. Find you. Move Forward.
1.) Show Them The Door.
One of the hardest things to do, in life, is the let go of people (energy) who are no good for your. I, too, had this problem for many years and as I’ve matured into the man I am, I began to look at my life and see who was good for me and who simply wasn’t. Letting them go was the hard but necessary part of my manhood. LET THEM GO. Trust me, in the beginning it will be difficult, but eventually, you’ll see the lightness of the load. Basically, de-clutter the energy around you.
2.) Be Honest, With You.
Honesty really begins with yourself. The lies we tell ourselves are deafening. They cause us to constantly make decisions that hurt us further. Think about it: bad relationships, money decisions, career. Almost always, our lives reflect the lies (or truths) we tell ourselves.
3.) See The World, As Is.
The delusion of self in the landscape of the universe is one of the biggest misconceptions. We do not exists on our own. We are, knowingly or unknowingly, are part of a universe flow of life. Our participation in the process is living. Resisting is dying. If you want something and the universe is opening up, go. And vice versa of course.
4.) Visualize. Actualize. Manifest.
See it. Do it. Be it.
Fuck it, you have nothing to lose.
Personally, I've been a huge fan of Brene Brown and work. Starting with the very first TED TALK she did several years ago in Houston. Now that I'm on the cuff of another production, she articulated ,with perfection, the fear I've had going into almost every production I've ever done.

"Love Is Strange"
"Love Is Strange" starring John Lithgow and Alfred Molina, is a wonderful piece of patient filmmaking that is missing in today's film industry landscape. The picture is about a recently married gay couple who is forced to live with friends and relatives while searching for a new home in Manhattan.
The film explores love in such a fresh way with two brilliant old farts. Lithgow's acting is particularly beautiful. His understanding of moments and inner dialouge is stellar. Alfred Molina's portrayll of his committed and focused longtime partner is just ...
Sometimes I think re-writing is actually tougher than actually writing. I'm done for the day. Feel me?
You have to go where your heart is and my heART belongs to Brooklyn.
Donnie McClurkin famously sang “We fall down, but we get up.” While I’m not a staunchly religious person, I’ve YouTube’d those lyrics many times when the chips in my life were all down. The first three words drove me to press play, however the last for are the ones we have the hardest time doing.
Here are four things you can do today to get back into the game of life and off YouTube:
Because it’s FUNNY. Sorry if it seems as if I’m suggesting to simply laugh at the dire situation you’re in - but, well - I am. Of course laughter has its on ...
