First of all, I have tried my best not to post anything related to the loss of our best Friend and loyal dog Zeus but this one I couldn't resist. This picture has so many stories in it that I wanted to share with you. When this photo was taken I didn't have a vlog channel. I didn't have the Smile More company. I didn't have new cars and a new house. I didn't have money! At this point Zeus hadn't even discovered his love for tennis balls yet!! I was working full time at the rope factory. Working night and day trying to build this dream of mine. A crazy dream. In this picture you see a couple things. One is my son Kane who at the time I believe was not even 1 yet holding Zeus's favorite toy before tennis balls became his love! A wooden stick. You also see Zeus as a young beautiful German shepherd in his prime. Kane's sidekick while daddy was at the factory everyday. At the time I truly believe I was struggling, not just financially but mentally I was beating myself up. I was very negative and just kind of mad that I wasn't doing what I needed to do to better my family's future. I was working non stop and providing but that wasn't enough for me. I was really fighting myself. Not happy where I was... I had no idea how I would get to this dream I was chasing. So frustrated with life. After about 11 years full time in the factory I started to go crazy. I needed to chase this dream and I didn't know how.. I was hard on myself for this.
We now jump to current day, Almost 5 years later. Brittney shows me this picture last night and I broke. I instantly realized that no matter what and where I wanted to be in life I was already living a dream. The dream! Looking at this picture last night it hit me so hard! I spent all this time and energy trying to get somewhere better in life I missed the fact that The only way I can see my boy Kane and my best friend Zeus playing together now... is in my dreams. The best dreams... Enjoy every moment with the ones you love. Enjoy where you are right now! Time is a gift! I know I'm not the best with my stories but I do love trying to push you forward. You're not alone with your struggles. Keep going. I Love you!
