My dad goes…”Evan, you have loved life with a fiery passion since you were little…don’t ever lose that. Don’t ever let anyone take that from you.” Light that fire inside. Love others so passionately they couldn’t ever forget about you. Serve the world in a way you’ll be remembered forever. Live your life in a way that inspires the hearts and minds of those who witness it.
Will the challenges come? Yes. Will you be scared to take that leap of faith? Yes. Will your past and what you’ve experienced try to paralyze you from making a decision about what is amazing in your life right now? Yes.
But do it anyways. Don’t be an “eh” with all that is in your life.
Be an F YAH. Be unreasonable. You only have one chance at doing this thing called life…might as well go out with all engines burning 🔥🔥🔥
It’s the spaces in between the notes that create the most wonderful music. The silence. The moments we spend to ourselves. The nightly walks under the stars. We can make music with our lives, this wonderful masterpiece we have been given, but we have to learn to love the notes, and the pauses in between just as much. When we can do this, we open to infinite amounts of smiles. We connect. We show up right here and now. And when the notes come back around, we play them with even more love and enthusiasm. We bloom. ⚡️🌺
Oh how your hands and heart can tremble, but how exciting it is. It’s the most enlivening thing in the world to risk. Who really knows what could happen? Could you fall? Yes. But what if it became the greatest adventure of your life? What if everything you’ve ever asked for and dreamed of was right on the other side of a decision you are being called to make? What if you knew that everything you’ve ever been seeking is also seeking you…and you just had to say yes to the possibilities?
It would all be worth it wouldn’t it? This life…it can be a journey into the unknown if you let it…and there’s so many treasures in store for you. So many surprises. So many achievements. So much love. ⛵️
“When sleeping women wake, mountains will move.” I’ve been surrounded by strong amazing women my entire life. I was raised by two and I watched my sister and my mom be themselves in a world trying to change them into anything but who they are. They taught me many things over the years, but above anything else they taught me many lessons on how to be a man. Not a pushover, not an appeaser, not a “nice guy”…no, they taught me how to be someone’s rock. A fearless lover. Someone who would do anything to protect any woman. A man who respected women, who would treat them like art and leave them as free as the wind. They taught me how to be a man…not a boy.
So, for all those strong women learning to love themselves, I’ve got your back. Thank you for raising me.
Decide to have guts over fear. Then, anything is possible. Don’t forget to celebrate your big wins in life – I had a few this week – so in good fashion, drinks with the boys tonight and off to the mountains all weekend! 🗻 Live a little 😉⚡️🍻
Everyone is trying to add things to make themselves stand out. You have no idea what you’re capable of…if only you actually subtracted all of the extra noise to find it. Get quiet. Get real quiet and listen. You have these gifts, and all you need to do is start erasing the layers and walls that have kept them in. Trust me…greatest journey of your life.
I have a lot of things in my life that make me feel lucky 🍀 and I know there’s a whole lot more coming ⚡️
Don’t wait till you’re ready. Don’t try to get to 100% Hit 70-80% and dive in. Because honestly, you’ll never find the perfect time. That moment will never come.
Things will always shift and change and morph. Dive in now. Sure you’re going to have some doubts, but to spend your life waiting for a perfect moment is to spend your life waiting. I want you to live.
“I want you to sing with rapture and dance like a dervish. Be ridiculously happy…or at least leave yourself open to be.” Don’t miss out on what’s here because you think it will be better “there.” There…isn’t guaranteed. The only thing you have is loving what you’ve got now…and if you let it go…it might never fly back.
And I’m all for adventures 🗻🌊⛵️
You don’t have to be like everyone else. You don’t have to fit into the “box.” Tear the box apart and build your life however you want to. When I started all of this years ago, I came from a background of being bullied, being treated like I didn’t matter at all, ignored, disrespected, outcasted…the list goes on. The worst part was that that kid back then started to believe in all those things people said about him. He didn’t think he had much of anything to offer.
What I found out many years later was that the thing that everyone tried to break me into pieces for was actually the thing that was my magic. I was different. I was in touch with my emotions. I had this capacity to light fires in people’s hearts and feel what they were feeling.
I want you to know you’re special. I want you to know I understand your pain more than you possibly could imagine. I understand because I came from that dark place, a place of not believing I mattered.
But that doesn’t have to be the end of you. That can be the beginning. If you can hold on and work towards being a light for others, eventually you will find your magic too. I believe in you, and if you need me, I’m here. I mean that. I’m your rock.
Surround yourself with people who love you, respect you, support you and make you a better person. Give them your love back. Because honestly, those people who are really there for you are very rare. They are diamonds. But most of all, know what you’re worth and don’t be afraid to walk away when you need to. Know what you deserve and appreciate those who give it to you. Leave anything and everything behind that makes you feel small and unworthy. #aintnobodygottimeforthat 🙏🏻
Always be curious. Always be wondering. Once you think you have it all figured out you’re dead wrong. When you think you “know” you stop learning. Even Socrates said that the only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing…and that dude was pretty smart 😏🙏🏻🙌🏻
