The Path To Self-Awareness: How A Simple Statement From One Of My Idols Left Me Speechless

As you may have read in my bio, my day job slash other passion is being a radio personality and programmer.

Recently, I've launched a weekly podcast with a "recovering singer/songwriter" (as he likes to refer to himself) friend of mine, Jared "Pete" Gile. The podcast is called "The Troubadour" and focuses on Texas Country and Red Dirt artists.

Currently, I'm editing the episode that's set to drop this Sunday. I love this part of the process because I get to go back to an interview that may have been done months ago and almost be a passive listener while I cut out background noise, long pauses, and anything that might interrupt the flow of the conversation. This allows me to move from the interview chair to the fan stands and just appreciate hearing what these natural story tellers have to share.

Today, however, I came to a part in an interview with a man I could most likely safely call an idol in this genre of "Dancehall Dreamers" that …

Easter: Celebrating Life; Recovering From Loss

As we are all aware, today is Easter, a day that signifies rebirth as well as the unofficial beginning of Spring.

Today is also a bit more personal for me, as it is also what would've been my cousin Kate's 35th birthday.

I've written before about her untimely death this past October and her impact on my life. Especially with one of her last Facebook posts about wearing your good jewelry.

Not only am I remembering Kate today, but in less than a week, Kate's family and friends will be gathering to celebrate her life and legacy and laying her to rest in our home state of Kansas, alongside our grandparents.

I feel that it's somewhat ironic and cathartic that her first heavenly birthday falls on such a significant occasion as Easter. 

As the days lengthen and the air warms, flowers are beginning to bloom. Kate's favorites were sunflowers. While it might have something to do with them being the state flower of Kansas, they have always brought me joy and comfort, as well..…

This 10 Year Old Girl Was Beaten To Death In School

A fifth grade girl in South Carolina passed away this morning as a result of injuries she sustained in a Monday fight at her elementary school.

RaNiya Wright was a student at Forest Hills Elementary School in Colleton County, South Carolina. According to reports, her injuries were so serious that she had to be airlifted to the hospital for treatment.

The news of her passing was confirmed by several people close to the situation, numerous journalists as well as RaNiya's school.

Not only is this a heartbreaking story of a life taken far too soon, but it's also a stark reminder of the bullying epidemic taking place in our schools and the lives of our children...and this isn't a new thing.

Bullying has been in our schools since schools first existed."Kids can be mean" didn't become a saying for no reason, but sometimes just being mean can escalate into even more dangerous behavior.

I was picked on in school, but thankfully, I was never beaten. I never had to go home a…
