Labour of Love

Gratitude, Life, Mental Health, positivity, self care

This county was literally built from the blood sweat and tears of hard-working, talented, and honorable human beings.

We often say, “Rome wasn’t built in a day.” We understand that to mean, it’ll take time to accomplish a grand task. Workers, back then, only knew this life.. day in and day out.. before sunrise until after sunset. They sawed, hammered, dug, carried, loaded and unloaded, relocated, built, filled and dumped, walked, welded, created.. There was no sense of defeat among the people. There was no “rush” to get it done.

They took pride in their accomplishments. They naturally accepted the tiresome jobs and didn’t complain.

Growing up, I was taught “Haste makes waste.” If your body and mind are in a state of rush.. It’ll fog your focus.. thus resulting in mistakes that require more time to correct. Amazingly, these workers understood that, too. The physical work and dirty jobs were their life. They didn’t dread going. They didn’t try any shortcuts to save “resources” at the risk of structure failure.

I admire these individuals. I admire their sense of dedication, work ethic, and humbled nature. Whether in their professional or personal lives, the labour of love was unmistakably evident.

Happy Labour Day America ❤️🤍💙🇺🇸

Here’s another small labour of love that made a huge difference 💓

Men’s Mental Health Monday {#MMHM}

men, Mental Health, Writing

The mental well-being of our men is just as important as our women. In a society that shames those, who are emotionally vulnerable, who stray from certain adult social norms, and have difficulty obtaining the much needed therapy, I’m working to provide access to what is available to them.
Some methods include:

  • Books
  • Podcasts
  • Videos
  • Brochures
  • Support Groups
  • Fellow men who cope

#Movember: November, Men’s Mental Health Month

For those of you who struggle to find downtime, a podcast is an excellent way to tap into therapy. What I love about this method is the diversity of casts. Each individual will find one that he best relates.

Here’s a few to try
