I sit here alone on a Sunday afternoon in my apartment in the San Marco area of Jacksonville. I’m alone but I’m not lonely. My family’s far away but they’re near. I have my “quiet” by my side to help me process what’s important to me professionally. I have my “quiet” by my side to process what’s important to me personally. I’m chronicling my thoughts and emotions, thinking intensely about my children, missing my wife on her birthday.
But all is good.
My parents raised me for this and I raised my children for this.
You have to take chances, get comfortable with being uncomfortable. You have to believe in yourself and bet on yourself to create destiny and greatness. Believing in yourself and betting on yourself isn’t easy or without risk, but it’s worth it.
