LOVE & CHANGE


Change is beautiful.


The biggest change in my life has come as a result of love. I remember the first time “my time” became “our time.” Bryce had only been living with us for a short period of time at that point, so our relationship was still a little awkward. I didn’t know how much to get involved as a father figure and I didn’t know how much Bryce liked me as one.


My alone time/work out time was also the same time of day Bryce was supposed to exercise and be outside. Bryce was an only child in a new city, and also committing to a new martial arts and fitness journey. One day, I walked him into the backyard for his workout and left to do my own in the garage. After I left, I turned around to go tell him something. I found him crying outside. He was scared and alone. That day, “my time” became “our time” and I knew it would need to stay that way.


Every time I choose love over comfort, my life is enhanced and my loved ones are rewarded with a better version of myself. A more supportive, present, compassionate version. The person I want to be. The beautiful changes that have taken place in my life as a result of love in my life over the last few years, have blown my mind. I want to choose this way every day.


Last Sunday evening, Antoinette and I were married at a chapel in Fort Worth. My love for Antoinette, for Bryce and for our family as a whole; is one of the greatest changes I have experienced in my life. I encourage you to embrace love and to embrace the changes that need to take place in your life.


Let the change take place ❤️
