My dads final resting place - where we spread his ashes. I can’t explain what walker lake and Wilson canyon mean to me in words... I can say that this is where we belong. - - And seeing these pictures - pretty undeniable - he seemed glad that we took an afternoon to say hello. #guardianangel
Human body’s - our Mindset. - - - So I have come to realize in my sobriety how much anxiety I really have - In todays society I am afraid that this is more common than not. I have also come to an understanding pushing my body through intense training for at least 30 min a day - most of this “anxiety” is minimized. This is my main form of stress relief. Most of my life I have walked around pretending like I operate better under pressure. That is a total lie. - - Saturday morning at the Calhoun’s castle - taking advantage of these sun rays before the snow flys. 21 months sober baby! - - All upside - and then you begin to see the results - that in itself becomes an addiction - all positive - all possibilities - some next level family man - next level businessman - some next level gratitude🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼 - - #attitudeofgratitude #blessed #sober #suicideawareness #prouddad #mindfulness #mindset #attitude #100to0 #7daysaweek #noonecaresgoharder #soberissexy #soberlife #soberlifestyle #soberlivingrocks #partysober #anxiety #anxietyrelief #calhounfitness #calhoun #vitamind #gooutside #cleaneating #massivegoals #gains #longdrivegolf #maxout
Mission accomplished - on the the next one. Bigger and better things - goals so big they scare me - so big there are very few who know what the next year has in store. The ones that know are on board - 5 point harness cinched down - with 👍🏼👍🏼! - - What is standing in your way? For me it has been me myself and I... and the lies I have been telling myself and pathetically excepted as the truth. Pretending to be someone I’m not - existing in a fog of depression and masking those symptoms with worst of alcoholism and drug addiction. Only to dig myself into a deeper - darker place - It’s everywhere. If it’s you. Go to a meeting - Ask for help... Even DM me. . . I am here for you. - After taking a good moral inventory of who I am - the man in the mirror - I tore it off the wall and replaced it with a window - transformation and transparency - vision. - Failure is no longer an option. I have been down that road. Many many times... This is a lonely - evil - fucked up way to live (a trap) I am growing up - growing grateful for all this universe (GOD) whatever you want to call it - has to offer. So far it has had an unexplainable - divine impact on me and it couldn’t have come at a better time. I knew in my heart I was out of time. And it was only a matter of time - - This truck I thought would fill a void in me - it didn’t - even for a second. It did however represent something that I felt was out of reach. And I went out and grabbed it anyways. And I truly believe as long as you believe - ANYTHING is possible - Including overcoming this darkness mentioned above. It starts and ends with the person staring back at you in the mirror. - Where I have come to realize actual fulfillment - is lifting others up. Bringing the people I care about to a place that they couldn’t even imagine - or they could see themselves there but weren’t willing to take the leap - whether it be bringing them out of this darkness or to the next level of the professional careers and or fitness health/wellness. These are all connected - I have proved you cannot truly have 100% of one without the other... It is simply a choice -
Swipe left - Calhoun’s - we are about the most addicted - lost - and broken family tree of any I have run across in my short 30 years on this beautiful planet. Mostly still In shambles to this day - except for one small branch 🌲 Small in the scheme of things - but big enough for me to anchor my portion of the Calhoun name deeply into the earth with strongest family bond I have ever known - Something that I thought only existed in the movies - in fairytale story book - My Bride @calhounfitmama has expected me to be strong enough to breakaway from it - breaking the cycle of violence - heartbreak - alcoholism/drug addiction - pain/suffering - this has been my normal - - I plowed a path out of hell - many times - broke the dozer - fell back down - used a shovel broke this too - kept clawing - until my nails bled - slipped and fell - many many times - and for some reason (Love) my wife was there - right next to me in my worst moments - worst mistakes - head in my hands - tears in my eyes - with pieces of our lives ripped to shreds - my my doing - she put the shredded pieces back together - reminded me that I am the one - I have it - I can end this - she had 100% unwavering faith in me - a broken man - still defying my belief. - she deserves this - If my dad had a Tia Doreen Calhoun - he would be alive today - I am him - he would have been able to rebuild - he would have been able to let his demons die - instead - he lost - his life by his own hands - with three innocent children - Who did nothing to deserve this - Damn. No disrespect to my beautiful mom - who is in - has been in this dark place - for a long - long time. - - it made me who I am today - - Today - I can say I finally have the strength - through the grace of God - the universe - our creator - my beautiful family - my Wife - I finally found it - because of death - my fathers death 16 years ago - my Brothers Brother Tamoke Smiley - a lost child - who took his own life 1 month ago - because of this darkness (depression/addiction) - because of this darkness I choose the serve as the light - to break this fucked up cycle - to start a conversation - lend a hand - an ear - a shoulder to cry on-plant a new 🌲
