Bleeding Deeds, Life’s Lust

I lead with my heart, letting deeds bleed me cold. The cruelty of form and substance was told, teach this boy to be a man, to claw and cling for every scrap, this life is our trap and rapture, and all the bleeding a must to trust. Launch yourself into oblivion, again and again unknowingly lost, seeking to find the innocence that slowly disappears in the dust. A phoenix you will be, one day near […]

Growth

For the sake of writing! There has been a hesitancy, even a fear or sense of dread, about writing on the blog pages of One Man Can. You see, the whole premise of the site, the writing, the coaching, the encouragement, was and is intended to lift people up, challenge people positively with their thinking, relationships, and professions. Instead, I found my own life being challenged and myself having difficulty being positive with the unfolding […]

Teasing the Writer

It can be seen by the lengthy distance between the dates for each blog post, the writer that creatively tells stories that inspire has been lost in the quagmire. Okay, so bad pun! I gotta play with what I got and get the juices flowing again! Of course, with the fingers off the keyboard, the mind was dancing with many turns of phrases that told a story. Laptop not ready, clumsy fingers on a tiny […]

The Powerful Story: Tragedy or Triumph?

“So, what are you going to do about it?” he asked again. Listening to his friend lamenting his pitiful circumstances, this was the only question that made any sense. Even so, instead of answering the question, the habit was to respond lamely yet again. “My day started off badly, and three years ago that other big thing happened, and now this other thing is about to happen, and I just am in a bad space.” […]

Opportunity or Disaster? The Bane of Change

A fog rolled in, quietly slithering in low to the ground, imperceptible at first until it was too late to escape the chill soup. It’s not You, it’s the It! What the…? Do you even know what you’re talking about? It! It’s the It, man! You’ve got it, and typically, we’ve all got it in some way, shape, or form. The beautiful thing about it though, is that It isn’t You. It just is what […]

Courage & Love Prevails

Weary to the bones, feeling the heaviness and despair, the fatigue demands you to sit and breathe awhile. As you sit and withdraw within the burdened mind and heart, you pant for breath, for life to return. A gust of wind stirs and refreshes you momentarily, clearing away the dark thoughts of the day, the months, and the years, and you raise your head and eyes to observe. “How did I not notice this?” you […]

Surrender | Trust, Faith, Love | Personal Reflections

I’ve broke promises already made to myself with this blog. I recall one of my earliest posts said I’d post something daily, and that hasn’t happened. Lately, I’ve gotten a bit smarter about it and posted a number on Sunday to self-publish each day of the week. Makes my job just that much easier. However, that doesn’t mean inspiration won’t sneak in and plant a new post mid-week. Today was a bit of a big […]

Life Changes a Man | Man Changes Life | Transformation Journey

A lot can change in a man’s life, and a lot in life can change a man. This is my story. In the past, my site was my business. I am a Professionally Trained Life Coach from the highly acclaimed Coaches Training Institute. That training was pivotal in providing tools to engage and struggle through a transformation’s final stages. Now, moving to a new chapter, my coaching remains part of my toolbox while my career […]

How Could It Be?

Yesterday I shared a significant insight from my own journey. It’s interesting to note that often a powerfully resistant question crops up almost immediately. “What do you mean?” It is a powerful disbelief because this realization places even more responsibility on my doorstep than I had otherwise felt real. This is where the sh1t has to get off the pot. I’m shaken to my core, fully recognizing and not wanting to look, that I simply […]
