#This is yet, one of the proudest moments in my life as a parent.🤩 My beautiful ballerina princess at her first dance recital.💃 I'd be telling you lies if I said I didn't ball like a baby seeing mine doing such a great job.😭😭 The way she looked my direction with those eyes, those eyes.. 😍😍 #beadadnotafad 👨👧
It’s been a long week, with not nearly enough time together as a family. But it was good to sit down, at least for a few minutes for some dinner and Advent devotions. A time to reflect, recenter, and reconnect relationally and spiritually. #spiritualformation#advent#family#beadadnotafad#discipleship
As a young 18 year old who wasn’t quite sure of his place in the world, wasn’t quite sure how to communicate emotions using actual words, I thought it’d be a good idea to get my initials tattooed on my arm. I thought it was a way to show pride in myself, to show love for my family, and just Incase I forgot them.
Since then, the colour has faded, I’ve gone through the initial stage of thinking I’m an absolute legend with this brand on my arm, I’ve despising it, then it just became a part of me, like a mole, or my black dead front tooth.
Then a couple of nights ago Nikki made me realize, AF. Abel & Francis. And now It means everything to me. It has all those hidden emotions behind it again, just like it did 15 years ago.
Whilst I wouldn’t say we’re destined by fate, perhaps there are points in your life’s timeline, dots, that connect our past, with our present, and our future. Highlights on the memory reel that just haven’t exposed themselves yet.
It also goes to show that how you feel about something, how you view something, can be nothing more than a matter of perception, a matter of choice. .
With my son setting up the plastic snow igloo invented right here In Canada. we bought it because he kept asking me to build him a snow fort, but knowing how unsafe it was I had to say no. Now things change, this unit holds up to 1000 pounds on level ground. Easy to set up, and fun. Now we just need some snow, hot chocolate and a couple kids in the neighborhood and we’re all set. #plasticsnowigloo#beadadnotafad
Not a day goes by that I’m not somehow reminded of my time in the service. Last night it was the sounds of a .50 cal machine gun being fired in the dark and freezing temperatures. It reminded me, that someone is training to face a deadly reality on my behalf, and I’m forever thankful for their service. Choosing to leave the Army at nearly 10 years wasn’t easy for me, but looking at these pictures from the past 20ish months, I’m convinced that I made the right choice. I can’t get back the missed birthdays, first steps, or holidays, but I can be here today. For that, and those sacrificing those moments for me, I am truly grateful. 🇺🇸 (Pics from homecoming from my 2nd deployment in 2012). #beadadnotafad#usarmy#raisemen#wbw#paratrooper

He Famously once said that Usain Bolt and Ronnie Coleman could have possibly been even better with a bit more symmetry.
In 2002, all he wanted was to get jacked while working at Body Fitness on Pierrefonds Boulevard in Montreal, Qc
He started off his journey by being a client of Marc Nadon, who was trained by @CharlesPoliquin (RIP Strength Sensei) http://www.strengthsensei.com
Marc mentioned how imbalanced he was and introduced Mat to Yves Ethier Posturologist and trainer pcqyvesethier.com
At first he was afraid, but then found his calling in this after seeing how much it helped him.
When it comes to having imbalances, is it Normal or rather simply common
Mike Clements Classic
Its always good to start off the week with a smile..
I know it sounds corny, but just give it a shot!
Always be you and never change just to impress people!
The only way I ever change is to better myself, never to conform to anyone or anything!!!
We all have our purpose!
My purpose is not the same as yours or anyone else!
So no I’m not going to try to be like @nodonutshere or @big_ty_russ or even my homie @thedblife and @will2win50 !!!!
Yes they are phenomenal people, but they are already doing their thing!
I’m not here to be them, I’m here to be me!!!!
My time is now, watch me grow or get out of the way!!!

You are what you do, not what you say you will do.
People follow actions, not words.
You have to constantly remind yourself that the journey your on is going to take time... don’t get discouraged.
Too many loud people on social and not enough silent workers.
There are two types of people in this world...
Doers and Dreamers.
I can promise that you want to be a doer not a dreamer because the dreamers ultimately work for the doers.
Lead by example, not with your mouth.
Set the goal, Do the work, let the rest takes care of itself.
Tag a friend who leads by example.
