I am again on a path of self reflection, not because of a large life event, but because there is something inside of me that makes me want to 're-invent' myself every couple of years - to throw Joe 2.0 out the window, and create the new and improved Joe. Reinvention could be fueled by my ever-evolving, internalized self critical nature. I don't often share my deep pitfalls with others - especially the ones that keep me up at night (most are rooted into times where I let others down). That sometimes leads me to wonder if people around me think that I THINK I'm perfect. I am far, far from it personally, professionally. In every nook and cranny of my life there are areas that I am flawed. I don't like it - at all. If I were to funnel everything into one opportunity - I want to be a better leader for my family, job, and other commitments (mainly fraternity stuff).
I want to use this blog again to talk through my thoughts in hopes of figuring out how to do these things better. I especially owe this betterment to my family, friends, and colleagues.
|Announcing Baby Peanut!!|
Oh, and btw Jane and I are expecting again! We are 11 weeks in, and love seeing and reading about how baby peanut is growing so fast. We couldn't be happier to have a little brother/sister for Grayson. We have already read a couple of 'big brother' books a couple of times with him. He is going to make an amazing, loving and caring big brother. Thanks to Marcela Clinton for grabbing these shots for us!!
