In recognition of unc @snoopdogg being the greatest genius of all time. #cloutchasers 🤣🤣🤣. You see how he switched that up super quick! Throwing it back to one of the dumbest moments in my life, after hanging out all night with Snoop in a VIP room while investors came in and I snapped photos of them. Snoop grabbed the camera a few times and snapped shots of people there with me. Being from Cali, hanging with Snoop snoop, milestone.... and then sticking to my morals, I turned down the opportunity to join #snoopdogg & some of Phillies finest athletes at the time to take part in a little puff-puff-pass session..... being that when asked I emphatically states “NO! I don’t do drugs.” Had @drsanjaygupta released Weed 1-4 prior to that moment.... “YES! I’ll take part in enjoying this plant”. 🤦🏽‍♂️

Nearly 1/2 way through our journey. The second time we’ve made this trip in 60 days. This time, much more enjoyable. Allowing us to stop, reflect a bit more on all we’ve overcome and what’s in store for the future. 1,951 miles left to go; Philly to Cali.

We met at our highest, fell in Love at our lowest. Found true happiness and fulfillment while fighting past the daily battles life throws our way, remaining excited about what’s in store for us professionally and personally. My life and us as a team are synonymous, there’s no longer a me without you. Thank you for everything you do daily for your passions and for us. I’m proud of you and I support & love you. Forever 💕

It’s amazing when you trust your gut, your heart, and follow where you’re led. Sometimes walking blindly, every minute trying to figure out what’s next, how you’ll breath, survive. If We’re destined for greatness, we WILL face resistance. Sometimes pushing us to the brink of losing everything, often past that... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Just know the tide will turn. It’s at those very moments we’re ready to throw in the towel that the unexpected often happens. And everything we’ve been put through is suddenly becomes worth it. We start to understand why we were led trough the trails; suffered the pain, we had to go through the trials and suffer the pain to be pruned and strengthened to handle all of the blessings to follow. No matter what you’re going through; hold on.

Such a pleasure meeting and working with @md.esth.nv last night on her very first shoot and did amazing! The conversations we had during the shoot and the hours after, reaffirm the sentiments above.

Never knew just how hard it is to feel like the entire world is against you, until I experienced it first hand. It’s no joke! Never been the type of person to get depressed, never knew what it felt like... until I did. Lasting not days; months. Filled with anger, despair; lost all will and desire to create, the main thing that keeps us creatives out of those depths. It’s a catch 22. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Peep the quote. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We don’t have to get back to good in order to start climbing out of the hole? No, things won’t be the same. Those circles of “friends” have shriveled, (fake) supporters gone, and the time you think you “need” people around the most, you’re instead left feel the most alone. But what better time than this to start over? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Pull your strength together and prove your resilience. We may fall again, but show yourself that you’re better than that! Get up! Open your eyes to who is still around, whose loyalty and love never wavered, our Anchors. It’s with these people we now build our strongest foundation upon, harness the knowledge of what we’ve overcome and be that Anchor for those suffering.

366 days ago I began my most enjoyable and most devastating year ever. Traveling the world, making new friends, creating businesses, falling in love with this beautiful woman; to having nearly everything taken away from me. The highs were high, and the lows, the lowest I’ve ever experienced; mentally, physically, emotionally, on both ends of the spectrum. The lows; forcing myself not to lose hope, not to give up, with the simple ideology that “if I just make it past this test...”, yet they kept coming. The small victory celebrations were cut short by a continued onslaught of more bombshells. Just like the majority of those I know, 2017 felt like the worst year ever. The jubilations fade much faster than the wounds take to heal. But they DO heal. And those wounds transform into scars; learning experiences now guarded by tougher skin.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Through it all, I have nothing but gratitude for being put through these vexations, and continue striving to persevere through everyday tribulations. Having suffered, mentally & emotionally, and embodying all of the physical effects of depression, anxiety, stress, etc. I know first hand how detrimental these thoughts and feelings can be.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I reached rock bottom; and that’s when you saved my life. I know, you told me you didn’t want me to make this about you... How could I not? Without being asked, you helped me the ways other couldn’t, there for me in ways no one else know how to be, continually see something in me that has me asking you everyday “is this real?”, already knowing the answer.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I made it through 2017 sane because of you, give me a thousand 2017’s with a promise of you by my side and I’ll never lose. Thank you for completing me, for continually being the rock when I can’t be. Thank you for your love and everything that encompasses the amazingly beautiful and supportive woman you are and supporting all of my outrageous ideas, like this new birthday shoot tradition. I love you unconditionally for being you, and thank you for giving me new life @zsazsabeaute.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Entering this new year of life battle tested, solidly grounded and focused on continuing to live unapologetically happy!

I began to think my work was missing something; my life just needed you.

My art began to lose its passion; until you found me and gave life a new meaning. With you nothing is unconquerable; everything within reach. Satisfied beyond belief, you fulfill me to my heart’s content and beyond. My complete happiness is due to how amazing you are and how perfectly you love me. I love you @zsazsabeaute.

“There is only one way to avoid criticism: Do nothing, say nothing, and be nothing.” - Elbert Hubbard
.
.
Almost no one likes getting criticized, those destined for greatness begin to. It’s so easy to tread lightly, stay in your lane, and get by. And for some, that works and is totally fine. But leaves those of us who have that constant drive for more, empty. Yet that path for MORE, more life, success, happiness, is often embattled with doubtful thoughts and anticipation of criticism from family or peers. Empowering these obstacles by allowing them to affect your drive only stunts your growth and potential, leaving room only for “what if’s” & “if only i’s”. .
.
Instead, if we face the criticism head on, be bold enough to internally review and accept where we can improve, and disregard any opinions forging negative thoughts or restrictive suppositions; no one knows what your going through or how best for you to handle it unless they’re in your shoes. We grow from our drawbacks and compound on our small victories. The focus then remains on the journey towards our individualized versions of success. Always remember, it’s easier to go with the grain than against it, break the boundaries of complacency to achieve your goals. They’ll always hate you before they love you.

Coming back 1000x times harder for everything they tried to take from me.

@zsazsabeaute had the nerve to act like I was disturbing her. 🙄 interrupting my humming and &$!?

I stress myself out daily doing the best I can to ensure I can give her everything she deserves and more. Through the obstacles and hurdles you see me deal with on a daily basis, the frustrations, joys, last minute life changing moments and so much more, you remain focused, driven, supportive, loving, and patient. I’d gladly stress a thousand times over if promised your happiness. Thank you for always being my support, my rock, my love @zsazsabeaute.
