Satisfaction in reaching goals does not always lie in the speed with which we achieve them; sometimes the satisfaction rises from overcoming obstacles and gaining wisdom in our journeys. How often do we dream of a goal, finally reach it, and then wonder, Is that all there is? Don't forget to live on your journey.~ Paul Stutzman "HIKING THROUGH"

i don’t wanna push the idea of living a little extra on the weekends than you do during the week - but if that’s when your free time is don’t be afraid to go all out. you might hate that 4:30 alarm when it happens but you’ll be thankful you got up 100% of the time 👌🏼
We honeymooned in Charleston in June 2015. In August of 2016 we picked an apartment 10 minutes from the beach. I still can’t believe we were lucky enough to live there for nearly 2 years. Now I’m hanging out in the Blue Ridge Mountains in Virginia looking at old photos smiling. Years from now I can’t wait to cover my walls with photos of all the places we will go. Always wander. If we were meant to stay in one place we’d have roots instead of feet.
Showed some love to the #ar15 recently. New @guntec_usa m-lok 15" quad rail, paired with a @monstrum_tactical 3x prism scope. Loving how it turned out, definitely not a complete build though as I still have a few things I'd like to change up. #300blk#nikon
(Part III) This week I’ve sat at my desk, staring out the window (like I’ve done in so many stories before) thinking about what it’s like to long for a place you can’t go back to.
I used to think that a home was a place; a physical place. But after the two conversations I had last weekend I now wonder if the heartache of missing something you can’t ever go back to might be a home within a person you have lost and can never go back to.
The first friend I talked with, who has been an invaluable source of support for me through my health issues, lost his mother a year ago and understandably still struggles with grief.
The second friend is an optimistic romantic who can’t hold on to love, yet, still loves everyone she’s ever loved.
I reflect to myself and can only think of very few times where I’ve felt at home. They are all in a person I can never go back to.
As I write this though, Rhen is resting her head on my shoulder. Home is where she’s at.
Self Portrait #1 // This summer has been one of the most challenging times of my entire life. To make a long story short I have felt that I have had no control over my life and have dealt with extremely traumatic issues due to an internship (no regrets on interning where I interned). So last night I took steps into my own hands and decided to take back control of my life. It might be not be the biggest thing but shaving my head has had extreme affects on me and it is like a sense of rebirth. So here is to the rest of 2018 in the hopes that my creative juices flow.
I posted this photo on my personal account earlier today with honest words about this beautiful girl. She’s not just glowing on the outside, but she’s glowing even more beautifully on the inside. I’m lucky to call her my best friend! She is dedicated, God-fearing, brave, kind, and loves people so well. She’s one of those people that unashamedly and boldly radiates the love & goodness of Jesus. I adore her.
