wise word wednesday : eric thomas

while on facebook the other night, i came a video my friend shared entitled secrets to success.
i had time to kill and like most people, desire to be "successful", so i clicked play.
my mindset has been altered ever since...

wanting to know more about mr. thomas and the path that lead him to where he is today, i spent the next hour watching any and every video youtube recommended.

a high-school dropout with a bit of a rebellious streak, eric soon found himself homeless on the extremely cold streets of detroit.
in one of the videos i watched, eric recalled that these days were easily the most difficult period of his life.
however, in the same breath, he stated it that were it not for these hardships, he would have never found the passion and drive he needed get out of his current situation.

though this particular message is focused more on success in the college setting, i believe anyone who's found themselves in a bit of a rut in life can find encouragement in eric's words.

snapshots: thanksgiving 2014

as always, i am late in posting these photos but i just wanted to share some snapshots from our thanksgiving dinner.
this one was one of the best ones yet as we had a ton of family come down from the states to celebrate with us.
it's been their mission for a while to experience two thanksgivings in one year, haha.
