Be Who You Needed

Gah! How stinking precious is this pic?

Anytime you feel blah, unimpressive, unimportant, useless, etc... Pay attention to a child. 

Seriously. It doesn't 'take much. Make them smile, laugh... Carry on a conversation with them. Brag on something they're doing or something they've made. 

When you see their little face light up the way only an innocent one can... man. It's the most fulfilling and important thing you can do.

Really! Think about it. How was your childhood? You either remember people that made a positive impact, or you wish so badly you had some. 

Kids are tiny adults trying to navigate through every emotion without understanding any of it. I want to do whatever I can to be a piece of positive influence for all that I can.

Help create a childhood they don't have to recover from. 


We've got a lot to learn, but we'll give it our absolute best.

We don't have our own kids yet, but I'm totally cool with pouring into our friends' in the waiting!

Also- geeeez. That man! 😍

Be a Kind Human

“Be a kind human.”

Even when it seems 99 out of 100 people have chosen not to be.

Even if life punches you in the gut every day of the week.

Even if people let you down or confuse you so bad it’s excruciating.

Even if your hopes seem shattered and disappointments grab the very breath from your lungs and refuse to let it go.

Even if you’re mentally exhausted, spiritually wounded, and emotionally drained.

Even if you’re so physically tired you can’t stand up straight.

Be a kind human.

Be strong. Be confident. Be brave enough to say no. Be bold enough to set boundaries. Be secure enough to let “it” go. Be passionate enough to try. Be determined enough to try again. Be genuine. Be you.

Don’t be walked on. Don’t be insecure. Don’t be ashamed. Don’t be mistreated. Don’t be disrespected.
But be a kind human.
