TOUGHNESS

I recently gave a speech for our local National Guard unit. I was speaking on toughness, or as the Army calls it, resiliency. In my view… toughness is something that has to be developed. Merriam-Webster’s calls resiliency “the ability to rise above adversity”. How many of you consider yourselves to be tough, or resilient? How many of you honestly can look down at your life and say unecquivocally that you have that trait? In my eyes, we all have it, but in varying degrees. In my case, I had to grow into this. It was painful and took almost 35 years. This is something near and dear to me. I love seeing people “get over”. I am all about “putting people over”. Toughness is a whole hell of a lot more than using curse words, talking loud and being overbearing. Some of the toughest people I ever met were under 5 feet tall, under 100 pounds.

I am sure a lot of you are reminiscing by now, looking at your body, looking at the tattoos, the scars, memories. If you grew up in my era (late 1990s/early 2000s), you can attest to a shift in the overall consciousness of Americans.Seems to be a less confident, less resilient people now. More groupthink, less “rugged individualism”. More victimhood rather than a “can-do” spirit. I will leave you all with this: Do not be afraid to fail. Don’t be afraid to be hurt. Never fear anything.

ASHY TO CLASSY

Recently a buddy of mine in the A has been racking up wins. Now, he’s a supervisor at his new job. I am very pleased and proud to know that he is doing great. Add to that, he’s a burgeoning writer. As a friend, I can stand by and watch him succeed (as a fan watches his/her fave sports team). I am proud to know Mr. LeBeau and to watch his development- from ashy to classy. He had been taking quite a few L’s since I’ve known him. Now, I would like to take the credit for his development and his success… I know I’d be lying, and doing that makes for nothing more than being a disingenuous fraud.

DO YOU

Take this for what you will, ladies and gentlemen. We live in a society that doesn’t give two f**ks about anything except what they can get from someone else. If men ain’t worth it ladies, be like Fleetwood Mac and go your own way. Complaining about men won’t change YOUR lot in life (unless you like being bitter angry and spiteful harpies). Men, if these women are nothing but hoes, idiots and all that, GO YOUR OWN WAY. It’s a big world out there. Whining about women gets old and it changes nothing. In closing… DO YOU.

HARD TIMES PT.2

Today, I suffered a setback. I didn’t even try to argue it much, because in this stage of my life, arguing something other than anything that is really important to me is just an abject waste of time. I often say that people are cheap props, that they really don’t matter, and that’s true.

Most people are slaves to that paycheck- they’ll do anything for that check. No integrity, no backbone. No hope. I certainly hate hard times. I hate having to deal with nonsense. This is the wake-up call I need to get my butt in gear and rise above this once and for all.

HARD TIMES

I been having a LOT of hard times lately. Gives me introspection on the world around me as well as myself and my struggles. I have gathered one thing from my difficulties, and that is perseverance. It is essential to success. Quitting, running from your problems, that just does not work. It is in the hard times where you find out who you are, what you’re capable of. I tend to say that is in the fight you make your name. Besides, I haven’t come this far to turn back now.

REPOST: @selectorjah: signs

The FIRST sign that a man will actually be able to PRODUCE SOMETHING in his lifetime has to do with his TRAITS. If a man is AMBITIOUS, PRODUCTIVE, HARD WORKING, HAS CAPABILITIES and is RESPONSIBLE even if he is trying early on in life, TANGIBLE things WILL be produced at SOME TIME later on in his life.
This is the MISTAKE a LOT of females make when choosing a life partner. When assessing a man,they overlook important traits such as those I mentioned, which could REALLY be the deciding factors as to what man can provide for a family and provide stability etc.
These trifling females don’t look for those TRAITS when looking for a man EARLY in his life while he is trying to build something for himself and his legacy. Instead they look at SWAG, if he has TATTOOS, if he has a BIG DICK/ good sex game, if he is a BAD BOY and will fight over her and other such STUPID criteria.
Instead they SHUN the DECENT, HARDWORKING man UNTIL he has achieved something tangible and AFTER SHE has been ran through by those SAME bad boys and swag fags realizing many years later that those types CANNOT provide her with the lifestyle she wants nor can he produce ANYTHING for their offspring. Not even money. So NOW she is looking for a man who has WORKED HARD and SACRIFICED and got turned down by EXACTLY females like her and EXPECTS him just to split HIS assets and wealth that he worked HARD for WHILE getting turned down by women LIKE her for WORTHLESS dudes.
A lot of people always talk about women’s choices in men, but I say IF females would STOP looking at STUPID traits like swag, dick game, tattoos, bad boy status etc. and start choosing men based on SENSIBLE traits like being HARD WORKING, AMBITIOUS , being a stand up guy, INSTEAD of shunning these types UNTIL later on in life when they actually have the money that they want(different from wanting HIM for who he is), then these females would actually start to have families where they are with men who actually DOES produce something for their family and legacy.

SEX: What do you like in the opposite sex?

As far as I can remember, I have always been attracted to women, especially ones who are curvy, have wide hips and big butts. This is a G-rated blog, so I will not get too graphic here. I have come to appreciate the thinner ones as I have gotten older. I must admit my tastes have changed somewhat… Yes I married a big girl… I love her. Yet, my tastes are changing. I’m not ashamed to say it here, or in real life. I am saying however, if I see a curvy blonde. WOW… and yes, my wife is a brunette. I have the desire to see her get to a size 6 at the smallest. I wanna see her have fun in life. But sexually, she can do much more if she would shed the excess pounds. I am shedding weight myself.. in the process of the last 3 years, I have gotten hurt way too many times. Tore a pec last year, can;t really run the way I want to due to training, I may never get things to the way I envision them. I will stay at it until I get the look I want. My green-eyed wife gets stares, compliments, and guys trying to get with her at times. I want my wife to get hot… okay, enough on that… What does it for you guys? BIG BUTTS? Big tits? What does it for you ladies? Broad shoulders, a six-pack and all?
