2010: The Best Year of My Life

December 31st, 2010

I don’t know jack. Chances are, neither do you. The truth is that the moment you think you have Life figured out is usually around the exact moment you begin reeling from the latest hook the bastard just threw you. However, something I do know?  This past year has been the best of my life.

2010 was the year when the right people came into my life — and when the right ones left. It was the year that the scales of my personal and professional life balanced. It was the year I found my place in the universe.  All the negatives were positives in disguise. It was the year that will forever make me — well, me.

I am not playing favorites by any means, but I need to say thank you to some. This is by no means an all-inclusive list — after all, there are friends and family who have been there since day-one and know their importance to me.

That said — David, Tara, Ryan, Steve, Chris, Regan and Aunt Dorothy — thank you for making 2010 possible for me. When the zombie apocalypse strikes, you’ll be the ones I try to teach to read instead of shooting in the back of the head.


What is a mentor?

December 3rd, 2010

What’s going on, friends? Long time, no see. Don’t worry. It’s not as if I’ve just been slacking these last few months. I’ve been hard at work – and loving every minute of it.

I recently contributed a piece to Matter Communications’ blog and wanted to share it with all of you. Have any feedback? I’d love to hear it.
