So it's been about a month. My birthday is on December 30th and this past one I turned the big 40. It's funny how much one thinks he knows of the world at our early stages of adulthood when in reality I feel like this age is the beginning of actually understanding my place during this point in history. I've made many a mistake but at least I can stand on my own two feet, proof that one can change the path of one's life with sheer determination and a little hard work.
At this age and only now am I understanding the true meaning of fatherhood. I wouldn't change the path I've taken for anything in this world. One look into my son's eyes and it all makes sense now. This is was the path I was meant to follow. This journey has sent me abroad during my military career. I had a rather eventful and interesting few years after that. A little lost and trying to find my way, until the fire service began and it began a new path of redemption and servitude.
Then I discovered my purpose. My desire to create once again came calling and the beginning of my Artistic discovery began. It's has tested my grit and determination and I'm in wonder as to where it will take me for this is a life-long desire that will never subside.
Lastly, as I try to appreciate every day as best I can. I have to take a moment and remember those that have touched my life in so many ways. Past family members, friends, and associates that have forever last their lasting marks on my own life. Tonight's glass of Bourbon will be dedicated to every single one of them.
Well said Vinnie, cheers to fatherhood, and cheers to your passion, keep up the great work man.
