Here Goes Everything

I write this from a coffee shop full of strangers and stories in Nashville.
Three years have passed since I last sat in this coffee shop and everything seems different now.

I am different now.

I am still processing our move from Austin to Nashville; how we left the familiar and returned to the great unknown.

But I sit here alive.

No one in the coffee shop knows this, but today is my first day at work as a full-time writer. 

I left my full-time job to bet on myself as a writer and poet. 

As the saying goes ... here goes nothing. 

But I am not giving nothing. 

I am giving everything

I am giving everything because ... 

I want to write something that will connect with you, inspire you, and draw you closer to hope. 

I want to provide for my family and realize dreams can become reality. 

I want to prove a few wrong and others right. 

I want to do more than just exist, but live. 

And when you ask what I do, I want to speak with confidence and without wondering. 

I am a writer.
I am different now.
And this is how my story continues. 

Here goes everything.


much love,
