Jan 21th

6 years ago I found out I was going to be a father.  When Lucas’ mother emerged from my apartment bathroom sobbing with the positive pregnancy test in hand.

She was crying because we had only been together a month and was afraid of how I would react.   Would I just peace out?

I remember what my Dad said to me when I proudly told him the news.  “I think you should consider taking care it”.   Now my father isn’t mean-spirited but he loves me and he loves Lucas.  But at 24 I had so much going for me in both my life and career.   He knew how much my life was going to change even if I didn’t yet. .   But we both knew that I wasn’t walking away from this responsibility.  And I never have.

Even though Luke’s mom and I decided not to stay together.   No matter how much my life changed and no matter how unhappy I presently am.   I would still make the same decisions. I love all my boys.  If she never got pregnant I would never had lit a fire under my ass and I wouldn’t be where I am today.

I was near the end of 2016 when I realized that my life was totally out of balance. I was 30 and I was working my life away. I did not have strong relationships with my wife, family, or friends. It was around this time that I came across THE HAPPINESS PROJECT by Gretchen Rubin. It was then that I decided to launch my own year long project towards personal happiness for the entire year of 2017.
