Life is a hill that we climb. We all climb it. And on this trek we climb in order to seek out the best ideas for living that we can. As I climb, I notice many things but one idea seems to stand out. With each ascension, as I learn something new, meet someone new, experience something new, I learn that this hill we climb must not have a set destination. When I was young, I had goals, ambitions, desires and now some of those goals have been achieved, some ambitions recognized, and some desires realized. Yet, each time I climb and see from the top of my current peak, something new happens within me. I see something I didn't see before. I feel inspiration. This inspiration gives life to more ideas and now I have created new goals and motivations to keep climbing. 

Life is a hill that we climb. One thing is for certain. It is a much more enjoyable climb with someone that we love. For me, it's been the most important thing in my climb. Most of my climb has been on the search for love. Love makes it better. I learned on my climb when I didn't find it, I simply had to create it. Love is like a bouquet of a thousand roses and each petal gives more insight into the beauty of the next. Sami and Tyler leave petals following them as they walk. They are love. Tyler just has to scratch Sami's back and she melts. Tyler would do anything for Sami. Together they ran up the hill (we had those nasty spurs in Sami's feet to prove it)! She didn't even complain once. Love can clearly overcome everything!

2017 | Being in the Flow

In all my years... and shockingly I’ve had quite a few of them by now, I’ve never had a year where monstrous changes didn’t occur. I used to go to a coffee shop every Valentine’s Day by myself and write ‘my year in review.’ I honestly couldn’t even recognize the man from the year before. So much changed. I read another book - changed my life. I met a different person - changed my life. I had a different job - changed my life. Year after year, I kept evolving and growing and each new version of myself that was created became so much more... aware. I think that’s the best word for it. Awareness can’t be taught. The subject of the idea itself means it has to be experienced. 

If understood fully, awareness is akin to finding nirvana. It’s the balance of faith, hope, meaning and reason all wrapped up into the exact moment you’re living in right now. The goal is never to forget it and to live in that state of mind infinitely. Every year, I get a little bit better. Each new experience gave birth to a new awareness and an understanding I can’t imagine I ever got by without. So here I am now. 10 years since Flow started. People have come and gone but the Flow has always stayed the same. With our wedding this weekend on the sunny beaches of Clearwater, Florida - it makes our 1000th event! It’s fitting that I’ll be running photography, video and DJ for the celebration. As Liam Neeson said in Taken, “I do have a very particular set of skills. Skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a valuable asset for every event worth celebrating!” I added in a twist at the end.  I began this journey by pulling off things others thought was crazy or impossible. Doing it all became part of my new normal. Thankfully, 10 years later, I’ve added on a team of celebrities in their respective field. Somehow, everything came full circle and I’m truly thankful. The next 10 years will bring about even more change. With these changes will be more excitement, more adventure, and events that not only create and capture the imagination but begin a whole new story that we each can call our own.

This is “our year’s favorite moments” with many more to come! I included a best friend who I lost to cancer, another best friend’s wedding day, adventures overseas, oldies but goodies, first times and last times, and falling in love. And most importantly a child’s perfect moment of GLEE! After all, being in the Flow is to be truly happy, challenged and ecstatic about the moment you’re living in right... NOW!
