A couple of years ago...camping trip funded by @discovery.
I like doing cool stuff with great people. It's good for your soul and makes you grow as an individual. So many times we desire something whether it be attention or attaining a position, but seldom do people want to apply themselves. This challenge allowed me time and opportunity to reflect on my past choices, motivations, interpersonal relationships, and what I want out of life. I left the jungle with a renewed confidence but also and renew motivation for life. If you look at life as a glass sphere that you can fill with sand. BLUE and RED sand. Now the blue sand is boring sand and red is good. What will you fill the rest of your sphere with? Boring blue or badass red?
We get one life so enjoy it but challenge yourself to live a life worth living. #mongoose#NakedandAfraid#nakedandablade#chance
What was supposed to be an ejoyable Kayak ride turns into survival of the fittest😶....2hours lost, a bottle of hot water and multiple attempts to find our way back ,resulted in a very DELIRIOUS me (@killy_monster_pt ) being rescued 😅
Alecia: Dad, how old do you have to be to go on Naked and Afraid?
Me: I don't know. Do you want to go on Naked and Afraid?
Alecia: Yes. But I don't want to be cold. Or wet. Or hungry. Or bitten by mosquitoes.
Me: 🙄 I'm not sure that's going to work.
The moral of the story is she wants what she wants how she wants it, lol. I blame @mrsabcraig.

People use to tell me I was brave. I think that’s what I wanted them to see
The truth is, I wasn’t brave, I was hiding my vulnerability
Pretending that circumstances couldn’t shake me or break me
I was a coward
Broken and afraid
Ashamed of my sensitivity
Terrified to be viewed as vulnerable
Everyday I release a little of the shame that I carried like a cross
I become a little more of myself each day
A little more vulnerable ✨
A little more badass
A little less broken
A little more courageous ✨
I give less fucks ✨
I am who I am
I am afraid
I forge ahead into the unknown anyway
Our love began when we were young. 25 and 29. We didn’t feel young then. But now at almost 38 and 42, looking back we WERE so young.
Our love began when we were unhappy and unhappily married to other people.
Our love began when we didn’t know what it meant to love, not even ourselves.
Our love has changed throughly the years and at times we doubted it, while other times it’s what we clung to.
Our love has been messy, hostile, confusing and volatile.
Last night we went on a day date, to the movies to see A Star is Born, while the boys were one room over watching SMALLFOOT.
If you haven’t seen the movie & like music, love Bradley Cooper, are a hopeless romantic you should, and you especially should if you have been affected by alcoholism in any form.
The movie was great... I surprisingly didn’t cry like I thought I would, but everyone around us was.
One scene stuck out the most... if you’ve feel it, it’s the when she’s in the bathtub after finding out she was nominated for a Grammy. The “fight” that broke out between them, two people who loved each other passionately and wholeheartedly was all too familiar. I looked up at Ryan during that part and said “This is exactly why I quit drinking.. one of the reasons at least.” It reminded me of fights that would spark between us over the first decade of our relationship, when our whole life revolved around partying... not really for fun, but out of habit and to numb ourselves from the pain of our past, and things that were out of our control and things that were 💯 our fault.
I remember fights that seemed to come out of nowhere. I remember the words spoken from both sides, that even at the time we knew were a lie, but hurting people HURT PEOPLE and when you’re fucked up in the head, running from the pain and fucked go because you’re under the influence nothing makes sense. I remember all of this all so clearly now and can’t believe that I ever thought that any solution could be found while drinking, doing drugs, screaming at the top of our lungs in the early hours of the morning, shouting words that hurt.
All I know is that when I finally had enough of the madness, and said ENOUGH is ENOUGH....
Day 3: first day out in the villages. We got to meet the “chief” of the town, who I am pictured with in one of these (of course, in Jordan Halsey fashion, I hugged him lol). We had clinic today, which was super busy, also made some house calls. I made a lot of new friends, who loved my hair and my iphone, two of my great assets :). I taught them the fun of taking selfies, let them do my hair, and tried to explain where New Jersey was. We also had service at night and served the community soup, BYOB (bring your own bowl). To clarify where we are at this time, luggage wise- still no luggage, wearing borrowed clothes, hair is still straight but that will all change soon...
