Eight Years And Counting

What a journey! What an amazing group of friends, brothers and sisters have come along beside me in these eight years. I am truly blessed.

What started off as a means to help other men not make the same stupid mistakes I have has grown into so much more.

Some people think I’m nuts and off my rocker to share some of the things I have shared. Coming out about my molestation as a child almost destroyed my family relations and some are still against it. Not believing it happened or they say it wasn’t really molestation.

Some really called me out when I shared a little about me being bisexual for almost 30 years along with sharing about my struggle with porn and masturbation. It’s just what guys do, right?!? Uhmmm….no!

And then some have come against for talking about sex. There lies part of the problem…they don’t want to talk about it. They don’t want to read about. They think they have it all figured out. Well, let’s be honest…they don’t have it all figured out and neither do I. But that does not deter me from talking about it. I want marriages to have a healthy, intimate, pleasurable experience for both spouses!

But I’m not nuts and I’m not old enough for a rocker yet!

I write about what God places on my heart. Some times He will give me an analogy to use and other times it’s just a straight forward message. And either way is perfectly fine by me.

I never really set out to share about my daily life, my love for Angie or any of that. But one day Gail tagged in  My Weekend Be Like tag and everyone was so loving and appreciative that I did share it. So, I started opening up a little more. I’m glad I did๐Ÿ˜Š

Some don’t do awards and tags for whatever reason they deem necessary. But I love them as it gives me a chance to share different areas of my life as well as ask some really tough questions about life and our faith.

And for the most part none of you have given flippant answers to any questions I have asked. Which I am thankful for. I don’t want answers you think I want. I want deeply thought out answers and not the cookie cutter Christian answer.

This year has been a tough one for me on so many levels.

And my blog has suffered for it. And I’m sorry.

Work is tiring, not being to see Angie is depressing and I needed a break from writing two or three posts a day like I did last year. I just didn’t imagine it would be so hard to get back in the groove.

To be honest this year has been the most depressing and anger ridden year in my life! And I’m sick of it.

I’m sick of not being able to see the love of my life!

I’m sick of not having a car! I’m sick of saving enough to get a car and then have the money disappear by means out of my control.

I’m also sick of all the BS surrounding Covid-19!

I’m sick of the hatred spewing forth from all races!

I’m sick of a lot of things!

It’s time for a change.

Maybe in the way I see the world or in way I react to all the malarkey.

But anyway, I really got off topic, didn’t I? Sorry about that, guess I needed to get that off my chest to a degree.

Despite my lack of posting I do want to thank everyone for sticking with me, praying for me and for those who blessed me financially while I was unemployed to keep the lights on and food in the house โค๏ธ

Never in my wildest dreams would I have EVER thought blogging would bring such amazing people into my life!

God sending each and everyone of you into my life has truly been a major blessing!

Thank you for love and the engagement with your comments.

For those that felt lead to reblog one of my posts or share them on social media thank you!

As year nine begins I will let you know I’m not going anywhere. There may be changes as I consider monetizing my blog through affiliate programs.

I am determined to finish all the posts in my draft folder๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Again thank you all!

Brandon is here and it’s time to hang out with my son๐Ÿ˜Š

Have a great weekend everyone!

Love you all!
