Today is my birthday. What? I’m 23? I haven’t really thought about it until I wrote it down just now to be honest. There has been only one thing on my mind all day today: how grateful I am for my life. It is truly unbelievable. For the last week, my friend Rich and I have continued to ask ourselves—Do we really deserve this? What have we done in our lives to deserve this? I truly cannot tell you. But it made me realize- to live the life like the one I am living I have to give thanks to those who have helped me become the man that I am. Normally, I would make a post here to commemorate those who have influenced my life, but I will not, as I would prefer to speak with all of you personally, over the course of my travels where I realize a piece of you which has stayed in my life. Again, to all of you – friends – family – mentors, I will be eternally grateful. Thank you for making me the man I am today.
