Through the cracks, I remember seeing my father play his guitar. Strumming, creating, and harmonizing. Making music to the best of his abilities. Some nights, I’ve even seen him pray. He always rested at the edge of the bed, with the night lamp on, as he closed his eyes and intimately murmured. He read books, slept like a bear, and at times caught me watching and invited me in.
Now, I’m the one being watched. What will my children see? What stories does my wife have? When I’m passionately in my zone, with that small opening on the door, what will my loved ones remember of me?
Down here in Miami, Fl there’s a lot of ethnic and cultural differences. Especially amongst the Hispanic race. You tend to see a lot Donald Trumpers in the Latino Community, who love to label the brown-skins as Mexicans. Honestly, as a victim of that, I don’t get offended at all. I just laugh inside at the ignorance — assuming that by them calling me Mexican is suppose to hurt me. So, I call you an Irish, African, Canadian, or Brazilian. Is this suppose demean you or me? Not at all. Know what I think? I think it’s time for these people to hit up Google Maps and learn some Latin American countries. Read more
I want to say I love Kung Fu movies. But I don’t watch them enough to even say that. If I choose to watch one, it’s probably because it has some cool kung fu-ish cover. Like a flying kick, an epic fighting pose, Bruce Lee, or that white bearded old villain guy.
Kung Fu Movies are so over the top. Which is why I enjoy watching them. The fight scenes are amazing. If it’s well choreographed. You got my attention. I’m at the edge of my seat. I don’t mind reading sub-titles nor do I mind the dubbing. I accept it for what is. After the end credit scroll, then I make the judgement. Read more
The future is something which everyone reaches at the rate of 60 minutes an hour, whatever he does, whoever he is.- C.S.Lewis
If we had a time machine, I’m sure some of us will do unbelievable things. Some will alter their past to strike it rich, others will probably prevent some evil world leaders to even be born, or maybe even travel to the future to get a glimpse of whats to come. Read more
With less than $100, you can be operating under a business name and with a business bank debit card in no time. You can literally be in business tomorrow!
But all that means nothing, if you don’t have the passion, the entrepreneur spirit, the drive and the courage to fail, so you can later win.
I learned something this week. Over night success happens after years and years of hustle. It’s not instant, only registering and opening a bank account is.
I guess, it’s time to put some years of hard work, starting….now!
Today, I wanted to drive away. For a split second, I set my eyes to the horizon. I gripped tight to the steering wheel. The noise of the world, specifically traffic, faded in to silence. I was convinced. Nothing stood in my way. I’m off. Read more
“… be strong, but not rude; be kind, but not weak; be bold, but not bully; be thoughtful, but not lazy; be humble, but not timid; be proud, but not arrogant; have humor, but without folly.” – Jim Rohn
I remember being bullied once at a park. My dad wasn’t around. He was close by with his buddies watching a soccer game. Unfortunately for me, I was on the other side of that field. Behind the bleachers, no where to be easily spotted by him. It was just me and a group of kids — all strangers to me — having a good time. Until one of them decided to pick a fight. Then that one turned in to three. I was surrounded. I really don’t remember what caused it. No doubt, it was for no reason. I guess I appeared to be the weak looking one out of them all. Read more
