The 2016 Chicago Cubs are World Series Champions

The 2016 Chicago Cubs are World Series Champions. Absolutely incredible. I was able to watch the Game 5 win from Wrigleyville and watch Games 6 & 7 with my Dad in Indianapolis. My Dad and I are both White Sox fans but it doesn’t matter.  It played out perfectly.  Couldn’t ask for anything more. Incredible.

Could use your help for the Walk to Defeat ALS in Indianapolis

Walk to Defeat ALS

Dear Internet,

Asking for your help. My siblings and I have team for the Walk to Defeat ALS in Indianapolis on 9/24/16. We have a goal of raising $2k for our team. All proceeds are donated to the the ALS Association. We would really appreciate any donations or people joining the team. (You can join without actually doing the walk.) ALS is Lou Gehrig’s disease. It’s the disease that inspired the Ice Bucket Challenge about a year ago. It’s the topic of the current documentary, Gleason. It’s a rough disease that gradually takes away your ability to use your muscles (walking, use of your arms, talking). We would appreciate any and all support (including sharing this blog post on social media). Thanks!

Sincerely,

Brian

We aren’t here forever

I’ve unfortunately been reminded, far too often, over the past couple years, that we are not on this Earth forever. Time is our greatest resource. There is no “someday.”  There is right now.  Does this mean, live completely hedonistically and Carpe Diem constantly? No. Not to me, at least.  But it does mean that our time is limited.  It’s very important to focus on the things that really matter.  Work hard and contribute to society, but enjoy yourself.  Take chances.  Follow what you are passionate about.  Spend quality time with those family members, friends and significant others that you care about. Don’t take time for granted.  Don’t put off for tomorrow what you can and should do today. Be true to yourself. Spread love. Have faith. Spend your time wisely. There is no time to waste being mistreated, and no time to waste not being 100% committed to the work, activities and relationships you enter into.  We are not here forever.  Focus on what really matters.
