My Fucking Feelings: The Cost of Building a Dream + Book Tour Dates

Thank you for supporting the mission of changing the way we think about masculinity and ourselves.

My GoFundMe for my Miserable Fuck Book Tour jumped from $3,300 in a few days. Ritesh Lal donated $200. Melissa Hartwig donated $100. Irina Strelyuk donated $100. Stephanie E. donated $318. And so many of your donated $5 - $25.  Thank you so much for your generous donations.

I'll be honest. I feel bad, guilty almost. I hate asking for things, especially money. I feel like I owe you guys now. I mean, it's real money. A lot of money. And it really means everything. I want you to know my heart is in the right place and all your donations will be going to me doing everything I can to create a dialogue about men, love, relationships, and humanizing ourselves. I'll be thinking about you and your donation as I ride up north with diamond nipples and a passion to create a dialogue. If I get shy or insecure about approaching communities. If I feel like hiding. If I feel like this was a stupid idea. Your support and belief in me will be the fuel that reminds me that this isn't about me. It's about taking your energy and allowing that to manifest through me and my story to engage with real people and communities. And trust that the collisions will make some kind of ripple. Dent. Bring breakthroughs and change to those who need it most.

I talk / write / teach our life coaches about living a through-me life. It's now time for me to put my actions behind my words. I've spent the last decade hiding behind a screen. The universe has called me to step away and get into the trenches. I am terrified. I have no idea what's going to happen. If anyone will show up. I just know that I have swam too far to turn back.

I was watching a documentary interview on Joseph Cambell last night. He was talking about how we all have tracks that are already laid. And if we follow our "bliss", our "rapture", we go on those tracks that lead to where we're meant to go - into our Hero's Journey. But of course, many don't follow their bliss and they never go where they're meant to, impact who they are meant to. Instead, they become the fallen domino that missed the target and stopped the rest (their story) from falling, a runaway train that has gotten off the tracks. They lack direction and purpose and just watch their life play out without truly living it. Life becomes stale and they suffer.

I'm learning that to live, truly live, you have to accept your story, notice how it's unfolding, and trust it by going where it's telling you to. You have to let go of the rock (comfort) and just go. Holding on does nothing. Trust your life river. Knowing that the ride will produce gold. It doesn't matter where you end up.

What matters is you go.

Come ride with me.
