In his own words…
All that matters is how we’ve loved.
I’m thankful for this life, all my family on this earth, my friends, and my God!!! I love you all!!!!!!!

It’s a tough, cruel world we live in these days. Which is why it’s very important to have a constant warrior mindset. Warriors fight hard no matter what. Even when they get beaten down, bloody, and have no motivation or strength to go on they keep fighting. A warrior keeps a clear, focused mind, and is constantly battle ready. That’s how we need to be in this world. The days are evil and the world is against us. But like a warrior we can’t back down. Especially when the storms of life are swallowing us whole. Keep the warrior mindset and fight hard, fight swift, fight no matter what. Fight.
Winners are simply willing to do what losers won’t. You might lose a million times. The difference between a winner and a loser is that each time one loses he keeps trying again until he wins that million and one try. To lose, stay down, and give up trying is what makes you a loser. As long as you have breath in your lungs and your heart is beating, there’s no excuse not to get back up and try again.
Mom -I felt inspired to write this. -Love, Justin
I had to bury a client’s cat today. He was only 7. Coolest/ friendliest cat I ever met. Planted a tree in place of a headstone. Of course after putting him in the ground I felt it only right to say some words, considering his family couldn’t be there. R.I.P. kitty…
Sometimes you have to make the choice to be happy or else fall into the dark pit of depression and despair. I choose to be happy through the good, the bad, and the ugly! Who’s with me!?
So I’m at the gym earlier and I have on the shirt that you see me wearing in this picture. I was in between sets on the incline bench and this big strong guy walks right up to me. He says, “what relationship do you mean by that shirt.?” I told him straight up, my relationship with God, with Jesus Christ. He said “awesome, that’s good to hear.” Then he tells me we are in the battlefield right now. I agreed. He then encourages me to stay strong in the faith, he shakes my hand, and goes back to lifting. It’s really encouraging to know someone else has the same mindset as me and knows the seriousness of this! It feels really good to be encouraged by a fellow soldier in the Lords army! — feeling inspired.
Through life we will encounter some dark times. It’s inevitable. But we were not meant to just survive. We were born to fly.
Alright, so I had to do it. First time for everything right. I had to ride the mechanical bull. A lot harder than it looks. That’s my embarrassing moment for the week lol — at Stetsons on the Moon.
It upsets me greatly to see the devil thwart people’s thoughts about God and influence people to see God and his people in a negative way! Don’t get it twisted y’all. It’s not about a religion, it’s about a relationship. God is my Father, my savior, my best friend, my healer, my strength, my rock, my protector, and so much more! You give God your heart, He will take care of you.
Gotta stay strong. It’s always good to stay in good shape physically, but our true strength is in the Lord. Nothing can compare to the strength of God. [It is God who arms me with strength and makes my way perfect. -2 Samuel 22:33]
Word! The Lord speaks to those who choose to listen. Just saying.
You only get one life to live. Live while you can and live it to the fullest. Ya never know how long ya got.
To be yourself is all that you can do. And if they don’t like that, well, you don’t need’em —
Finally done with what felt like a never ending day of work. Happy Friday everyone!!!
