Yesterday, I was immensely tired for some reason, but I did not fall asleep at all.  My body was just telling me "dude! What are you doing! Cmon! Let's just sit back down and finish this movie."  And of course I just gave in every time.  I knew I had to go to work at 4pm, but even when I was super motivated and wanted to wake my body with a boost of energy I was just zoning out.  I even had a cup of coffee and there was still no hope.  It seemed like all hope was lost.  So I hopped in the shower, shaved, and headed to work.

(I work at festival foods in the produce department at the De Pere, WI location.  So if you are ever in there, stop by and say hello!)

As I was walking through the store to my department I just got this strange sense of power that woke me up and gave me the energy I needed to go to work.

I wasn't sure if it was the shower, the shave, or the late reaction to the coffee that did it, but I was just so glad that I was no longer zoning and being lazy.

Life can be funny, strange and revealing.

I guess what I am trying to say is that sometimes I can feel like I am going crazy struggling to do what ever it is I want to do.

Despite the struggle,  I move on.  I somehow manage to make it. 

Life can reveal that no matter how dark the tunnel may seem, light is just waiting for you on the other side.

Be courageous, move on, don't give up, and remember to enjoy the journey of life.

Take Care Everyone

Under the Influence

INFLUENCERS FULL VERSION from R+I creative on Vimeo.
INFLUENCERS is a short documentary that explores what it means to be an influencer and how trends and creativity become contagious today in music, fashion and entertainment.

The film attempts to understand the essence of influence, what makes a person influential without taking a statistical or metric approach.

Written and Directed by Paul Rojanathara and Davis Johnson, the film is a Polaroid snapshot of New York influential creatives (advertising, design, fashion and entertainment) who are shaping today's pop culture.
