Unfiltered {blunt} perceptions of life in the military – through the eyes of a husband/father/servicemember.

Self-Isolation… Nothing New Here

Billions of people around the world are experiencing an entirely new reality. They are being asked to isolate themselves. They are being told to distance themselves from those they love and care about. They are passing up opportunities to enjoy the activities that are normally taken for granted. Some are missing holidays, birthdays, anniversaries, and specialContinue reading “Self-Isolation… Nothing New Here”

College β€” It’s Why I Joined The Military

My parents couldn’t afford it. I mean, according to the government, they β€œcould.” They absolutely couldn’t afford it. I filled out the FAFSA… my parents made too much money (even though they were up to their eyeballs in debt). The entire experience was anxiety-ridden. The annoying guidance counselors, the pressure from coaches and mentors, allContinue reading “College β€” It’s Why I Joined The Military”

The military is filled with mentally and physically “hard” people. Wrong. The military is filled with… people. Yes, there are mentally and physically hard people. But, there are various types of people in the military. People who are driven by emotion. People who are incentivized by happiness. People who are molded by the past. PeopleContinue reading “𝐍𝐨𝐭𝐑𝐒𝐧𝐠 𝐈𝐬 𝐖𝐫𝐨𝐧𝐠 𝐖𝐒𝐭𝐑 πŒπž”

Take Me As I Am

Social conformity is a joke, right? Nah dawg. It is a legitimate behavioral response to peer pressure (or group pressure). Everyone seems like they are just trying to “fit in.” Fit into whichever group they find appealing, seeking recognition/validation while disregarding their values, or just adapting in order to make it out alive. Social conformityContinue reading “Take Me As I Am”

Oh, So You Think You Can Lead?

Oh, so you think you can lead? Most toxic leaders are completely naive to the fact that they are toxic. Good leaders are rare, but being a good leader is more simple than you might think.

Factory of Mistakes

You make mistakes, right? I know for a fact that we all have. Mistakes aren’t always a bad thing. I get it – there are small mistakes and then there are grave mistakes. We have to be honest with ourselves when it comes to the kind of mistake we make. Mistakes, and failures, come withContinue reading “Factory of Mistakes”

Are You Curious?

Seriously, are you? Not in the typical fashion where you pry into people’s lives, snoop through your significant others sh*t, or ask intimate questions to a stranger. This isn’t β€œcreeper” curious (although you might argue that even some creepers are pretty analytical and intelligent, i.e. the main character in the TV show β€œYou”). I’m talkingContinue reading “Are You Curious?”

The Unspoken Hero

If you have kids, know someone who has kids, or pay attention to memes that parents post on social media – you are probably familiar with the joy that children bring. Scenario: It is the middle of the night and you are pulled out of a dead sleep by a screaming child. They are sickContinue reading “The Unspoken Hero”
