Here is another post on masculinity that you never asked for.

Yeah I’m a dude. Many of my dude friends like to play sports, shoot guns, work on cars, go camping and build stuff. Sometimes, when we run into a mat out somewhere, we will start wrestling one another for no apparent reason. These are dude things, but this is not what makes a man. I…

What am I going to do with all these realizations?

In 2022 I’ve had many eye opening experiences. When I was in LA for a video shoot I realized that anyone is capable of bringing change into this world, but how do I change to prepare myself? Through the loss of my dear grandmother and several friends, the inevitability of my own death makes me…

Everyday

As I age I start to realize little by little how much our parents do for us. Although I’ve lived with my mom for all my life, she has lived to see me more. The times I simply cannot fathom when I was an infant I can only imagine by seeing what my sisters go…

Appreciation post.

I started this Ramadan…

Burning Out

Flushed out of ideas and running with a low tank of fuel. The word slump was introduced to me this week, and I most definitely have felt this in my life. I am stuck in between the narrative of the hardworking man who believes that being sleep deprived due to an overwhelming amount of work…

Dealing with Defeat

Dealing with defeat. Sometimes life doesn’t go according to plan. We can do our best to scheme, think of obstacles that may arise in our path, imagine possible outcomes, hope for the best and yet still have the entire project fall apart. I was questioning whether I should make this post. I do my best…

Hang in there!

Looking back in time, I started to remember some of the promises and conversations I had with myself. At 19 I made the intention of not succumbing to the narrative that has been prepped for me.
