I did a bit on the show this week where I asked people to briefly tell me about what changes have happened in the last 5 years of their lives… it was astonishing!
For starters it was amazing how many calls I got! Dozens of people with powerful stories about overcoming obstacles, gaining success and finding great improvement in their lives… but there was also people who told us of great setbacks, hardships and failures they'd incurred in the past half-decade, yet all of them ended their calls with a positive look at the future, and if nothing else, all had a determined will to win over the odds that may have seemed almost insurmountable.
I sat there a bit in awe. I honestly had thought that the topic would be a "risky" considering the fragile state of the average person's mindset these days. I expected the worst and instead got a pleasant surprise!
I also couldn't help but drift off to remember the person I had been five years ago and consequently sit in disbelief of how different my world is now as opposed to then.
Five years ago I was taking full care of my mother (who was in ill health), I drove a PT Cruiser, I was in a dysfunctional and toxic relationship, lived in an unfinished house and not only had no pets, but had no desire to have one (not to mention two or four), oh, and I was not even a member of the morning show that I now co-host.
Half a decade later all of that is changed… I am in a totally finished and beautiful home, drive a Chevy Colorado, I have a job that most people (even those in the radio biz) would love to have, I am the proud father of a cat- a dog- and two fish, I adore a five year old that keeps me on my best behavior daily, and in December I'll stand on a beach in South Carolina and commit my life to her mother, my soul mate, as she becomes my wife.
Wanna make yourself smile?... Take a moment and think now about where you were ONLY five years ago… you may be surprised how far you've come, or maybe you'll get a very clear picture of what you need to change to start moving forward, but for better or worse, I hope that the next five will be equally as awesome, for both of us!
I love my HTC One M8, but I needed a case. A cool feature of the M8 is the Dot View feature, which turns your screen into this cool 8-bit looking graphic. However, official Dot View cases are expensive, luckily, they sell knock offs on ebay for half price! How do they hold up? Check it out in the video!
I have seen this case floating around on the internet and it looked visually appealing ands tends to get great reviews. The price is a bit high but I took the plunge and bought one and here is my review!
I'm back with once again, another review. This time I put the Skull Candy Hesh headphones on the cutting block. I tend to forget my headphones at home, so I figured a nice backup would help. I have been wearing Skully Candys to work for the better part of five years now, and figured these would make a nice backup.
While they are expensive in stores I was able to pick up a pair used on ebay for $25. How do they hold up? Check out the video and find out!
A lot of people ask we what type of headphones I'm wearing when I'm out at remotes or doing my show live. So I figured why not do a review! Yes, I rock the Skull Candy Crushers everyday, for about two years, and here is my review!
