being scared and broke are not reasons to stop chasing dreams

I've been putting this off for way too long. It took a worldwide pandemic for me to take the time to self-reflect:

the last 13 years of discovering how to survive in the world since graduating from college in 2007; the 8 years at UTSA trying to figure out who I was, what I believed, and what I wanted to be; my teenage years growing up by the beach, playing sports, smoking weed, and doing schoolwork; and my small-town childhood playing around our 30-acre ranch and my Dad's hot rod shop.

And still to think, everything I've learned, endured, and accomplished, doesn't even compare to all the times that I've failed. There was a time when I loved to fail, because I felt it made me a better person. This is me trying to get back to that killer-mindset. Some people are scared of failure, and so am I if I'm being honest. Starting over at 39 is scary.  Fortunately for me, being scared and broke are not reasons to stop chasing dreams.  

The difference this go-round is, now I know what I love and what makes me happy.  I know what I'm good at, and I know what it takes. I know what I want out of life.  I've tasted it.  Follow along here.
