I am really good at appreciating life. I have a body capable of hard work and a mind strong enough to push the limits of those capabilities. I pay attention and I learn something new everyday. I constantly wonder how to make things better for tomorrow and times to come. I do not get caught up in the “now.” I am wise enough to know when to talk and when to listen. I live every day in the pursuit of happiness, knowing that I am happiest pursuing happiness. I dream. I am the American Dream.

In an effort to save money, Abby, our son (Braylen), and I moved in with her parents (who are kind enough to help us facilitate our dreams). We’re living minimally, with most of our things in storage. I’m training in the mornings while Abby takes care of Braylen. The money I make all goes to bills.
I woke up early last Sunday morning, and I looked at my beautiful wife, still asleep. Our son was sleeping awkwardly between us. The clearest thought came to mind, “If I had a million dollars, I wouldn’t be any happier than I am right now.
