Community has been a wonderful rough patch this past year.

Just because you feel nervous or afraid of something doesn’t mean that you still can’t act above that fear—even though I feel this way, I’m still going to act off my values especially if I don’t feel that value right now.

Just because something is hard, doesn’t mean that it’s bad—It’s hard feeling isolated, it’s hard having a full time job, and it’s hard to just figure life out but it’s been really good too. It’s hard to maintain community when you’re not living in the same house as your boys but that doesn’t mean that its bad. Good things come from that.

When you’re not growing, you’re shrinking.

Mug Life is a project that explores the power of community and how it can be created with something as simple as a mug.
