I Am Not A Monster

I wish you could see me for who I am…a man who strives to conduct himself with honor, integrity, and respect with every choice that he makes.

If you happen to be a fan, I think you need to read this. If you aren’t a fan, you’ll appreciate it even more. … Continue reading

Ordinary moments become magical, every aspect of life becomes more chill, and the light she puts in your heart can be seen by everyone you encounter.
