How often have you looked for a new chance, a new beginning? I know I’ve searched and searched for a chance to change each and every mistake into an opportunity for winning So what about this time of year does things dying represent a second chance? The way the leaves are falling reminds me of the way my mind wanders in the wonders of a journey I yearn for, I’m lost in this trance This time is a season for reflection How beautiful is it to watch something die and be made new, this season brings me to this world, the only time I feel the connection I watch the trees change from color to color as I hope to do Let the old die and let me grow into something brand new Take me on this journey of a fiery pathway I desire to be as bold and bright as these leaves, let the old wash away I’d like to start fresh, guide this path to a lost identity Show me the colors of autumn, show me the value of being free Wipe the slate clean I want this faith to see the unseen I see my life laid out at my feet I may fall, I may stumble, but they will not win, they will not defeat The wind whistles outside and I watch the trees fall one by one My battle is not over, it has just begun Autumn- you are new beginnings, you are mine This is my year, take it over this time. - Made by Jason *Picture is not mine* #autumn #fall #myfavoritetimeofyear #poem #poetry #writer #words #wordporn #quote #quoteoftheday #writersofinstagram #writing #writing #quote #quotes #identity #letgo #life #lost #inspiration #encouragement #mentalhealth #freedom #peace #newbeginnings #change #motivation #determination #intj #solitude #introvert

Have you ever seen the movie Dirty Dancing? Well, I must say that we make a really close cut to looking like that movie. I’m kidding really. But this clip does remind me of that movie. I’ve always been an oldies fan so I gave this song to my wife last year. This entire song is us. When I’m with you, the world around us falls apart. As you already know, I am really awkward. It shows a lot in this video. I don’t know how to just be open out in public. You make me forget it all. I’m just.. dancing with the love of my life and all else fades away. Thank you for allowing me to be myself and not judging. Thank you for embracing my weird. You just get me. Many people have thought we were crazy, but the world falls apart around us. You are all I see. Many people have tried to knock us down but the world can run out of lovers but I’d still have you. I know you can clearly see HOW touchy my wife is here. She constantly is touching. She’s literally the only person I can tolerate touching me. I’m just not a touchy person. You can see clearly in this short clip that it is not always openly given. I try my best. Most times I am very affectionate with her. I could hold you forever and it still wouldn’t be enough. It may not always look like that.. especially as the awkwardness you see here. But you know me and being recorded. 😳 Nothings gonna stop us now and nothing ever will. You make me so honored to be by your side. I could dance anywhere with you. You make it so easy to forget the world and just focus on you. You are what makes me comfortable. Thank you for bringing me out my hidden shell. Everyone should experience being with someone where they can dance with no music and be so carefree as to who sees because they love that person so much. You give me the best and memorable experiences of my life. I cherish our memories most of all. You make every single day fun. Thank you. You are this bright ray of sunshine and I am this pocket of dark skies. Somehow we combined and balance it out. You remind me of my favorite season fall. You remind me of new beginnings. You are mine.

Understand me. I’m not like an ordinary world. I have my madness, I live in another dimension and I do not have time for things that have no soul”. -Charles Bukowski I had the pleasure of filming and doing photography with my talented wife. Although I cannot stand being filmed or getting pictures taken, I had such an enjoyable time. Anything I do with her is the best moments of my life. Being with her reminds me so much of this quote. In life, most people long to fit in. I’ve never fit into some type of box. I never made time for those who were shallow minded, boring, and dull. I didn’t make time for those with meaningless conversations, those who brought nothing to the table with intelligence, and people with no mind of their own. I’ve always been the weird one, the peculiar, the odd black sheep that was always noticeably standing out in the crowd. I actually embrace it, because I know that it shaped and formed my character in not going through things that others may have had to learn. I just know character. I can foresee it and I’ve been told it’s kind of creepy just how much I’m able to do so. For the first time in my life I actually was able to fit in. I fit with my wife. I can talk to her for hours about deep and intellectual things, she keeps my mind stimulated, she is fun, joyful, and a pleasure to be around. She brings me out of my shell like no one ever does. She sees sides that no one else sees, and I am so grateful it’s her. She sees my madness and embraces all of my sides. I was never sure as to why people made time for people that had nothing to bring to the table of their life. When we invest time into someone, we are saying “You are important”. Making time for people that offer nothing seems pointless to me. It’s why I can’t be around people for long without it draining the life out of me. She is my favorite person to spend time with. I never regret giving it to her. I never have. Something about being by the ocean brings so much clarity and perspective. Just being there with the leaves falling now reminds me that my favorite season fall is near and that new beginnings and change are taking place. She is the wisest investment of time I ever made.

Some of the grocery haul from Sunday. I know healthy food is NOT cheap whatsoever. But those make excuses will find their way for convenience in spending $20 for a quick fast food trip. It’s all about priorities. Getting whole and clean ingredients is an investment- a good one at that. I can’t ever imagine ever turning away from this type of food. I know how it makes my body feel. Without this and the gym, my life would not be fulfilling. This is a huge part of who I am. Looking for sales and finding places that sell stuff in bulk is the more wise way to go. Costco has amazing sales and it offers stuff in bulk. You can rack up on fruits and vegetables here for cheap. We do most of our shopping at Costco, Aldi, Trader Joe’s, and Shoprite(only on the north of the US). We get A LOT of food for great prices. Excited to meal prep all of this food for some new recipes. Clean food and clean meals. 😁 Incase anyone wants ideas, here’s some stuff in this photo: Fruit, Greek yogurt, Organic superfoods protein powder, turkey bacon, chicken, veggie burgers, sweet potatoes, vegetables, Trader Joe’s broccoli slaw, a lot of greens, organic figs, organic dates, salmon, etc. #mealprep #food #cleaneating #healthyfood #healthy #health #healthylifestyle #healthyeating #healthymeals #healthyliving #fit #fitspo #fitnessmotivation #fitnessjourney #fitspiration #motivation #determination #dedication #cleaneats #gym #gymmotivation #gymtime #nutrition #hardwork #mypassion #investinyourhealth #realfood

First meal: Trader Joe’s Naan flatbread, tomato sauce, onions, chicken breast slices, arugula, peppers for mine, and chicken/kale sausage. Second meal: This was my second meal after a 22 hour fast. Everything bagel thin, Trader Joe’s muffin, one egg, raspberries, and a protein smoothie. Third meal: Seasoned wings marinated with buffalo sauce, and Trader Joe’s kale/broccoli slaw salad. Fourth meal: This was my first meal after a 22 hour fast yesterday. One chicken quesadilla, on the side with Trader Joe’s Apricot salad. Hers was two quesadillas with salad. On a side note- we’ve been eating larger portions of meals to get our calories in. It is something that helps control hunger and allows your stomach to become more satisfied without snacking. It helps us a lot. #healthyfood #health #healthyrecipes #healthylifestyle #healthyeating #healthymeals #healthyliving #cleaneating #cleaneats #nourish #nutrition #motivation #determination #dedication #fit #fitfam #fitspo #fitspiration #fitnessjourney #fitnessmotivation #workout #gym #gymflow #hardwork #mealprep #food #goals #life #mypassion

Count your blessings is all I have to say. I definitely needed to see this. I’m sure someone else does as well. Many times we look and compare our things to what others have and we fail to appreciate what we have. We all do it at one point or another. I’m on a road to start appreciating more of what I’ve worked so hard to achieve. If you are working hard, stay at it. Others roads are NOT your road. They didn’t go through the same journey as you. Just keep working and let it flow. You may get what you asked for; or, you may get so much more than you ever thought you’d get. #countingmyblessings #blessed #quotes #quote #writer #writersofinstagram #writersofig #writing #writerscommunity #hardwork #wordsofwisdom #wordsofencouragement #wordporn #words #foodforthought #encouragement #inspirationalquotes #inspiration #positivevibes #motivation #dedication #determination #dreams #goals #healthymind #healthylifestyle #healthyliving #life #freedom #hope

She doesn’t eat bagels all that often. However, when she does, I make sure she gets the prettiest ones. She loves bagels. I made her this meal last week for her first meal of the day after fasting for 18 hours. P.S Just wanted to take a moment to acknowledge that my wife has lost 30 pounds so far. She was just speaking to me how natural it comes to her to eat healthy and clean food and really feel satisfied. I am so beyond proud of her progress. #proudhusband #cleaneating #healthy #healthyfood #healthylifestyle #healthyrecipes #healthyeating #cleaneats #health #healthyliving #nutrition #food #fit #fitfam #fitspo #fitnessjourney #fitnessmotivation #fitspiration #workout #gym #gymlife #weightloss #weightlossjourney #motivation #dedication #determination #hardwork #progress

Last week for two days worth of food each: Teriyaki salmon, green beans, and potatoes. Like the switch up with salmon. Been switching up a lot with different types of meats. #health #healthy #healthyfood #healthyrecipes #healthyeating #cleaneating #healthylifestyle #healthyliving #healthychoices #cleaneats #nutrition #nourish #fit #fitfam #fitspo #fitnessmotivation #fitnessjourney #fitspiration #gym #gymlife #workout #motivation #determination #dedication #progress #mypassion #goals #food #mealprep

A grocery haul this Saturday. A very happy one at that. This food is amazing. Not everything pictured here. A lot missing. Pictured here: A lot of bread, blueberries, plums, broccoli, tuna, cottage cheese, rice cakes, chicken breast, chicken sausage, turkey sausage, chicken breast strips, tomatoes, limes, apples, etc. Finally getting back into the swing of things. Made it to the gym five days in a row this week. I’ve missed it so much. Never again will I not fit it into my schedule. #realfood #healthymind #healthyfood #health #healthy #healthyeating #healthyliving #healthyrecipes #healthylifestyle #food #fit #fitfam #fitspo #fitspiration #fitnessjourney #fitnessmotivation #motivation #determination #dedication #mealprep #cleaneating #eatclean #nutrition #gym #gymmotivation #workout #mypassion

The meals I served the other day for my wife. Her meals always look better than mine. She always gets the plates that look like this. Pictured here is: A tuna salad with organic spring mix, chopped carrots, cucumber, chopped walnuts, pumpkin seeds, boiled eggs, and tuna. And for the other one it’s two rice cakes, two eggs, and homemade guacamole and salsa for the spread. On the side is a protein shake with strawberries. • • • • #realfood #nutrition #nourish #cleaneating #eatclean #food #healthyeating #healthyfood #healthyrecipes #healthybreakfast #healthyliving #healthychoices #healthylifestyle #mealprep #fit #fitfam #fitspo #fitspiration #fitnessmotivation #fitnessjourney #motivation #determination #dedication #gym #gymlife #goals

I haven’t been to the gym consistently basically the entire summer. I hate excuses, but working 65-70 hours a week and working double and even triple shifts isn’t easy on your body. Most times I am too fatigued to even get there. I sum up sleep in days of what I should be getting in one day. It really does not seem like there is quite enough hours in the day for anything else. My motivation with the gym has plummeted.. and I hate that so much. But, I am most certainly motivated to get back to where I once was and even better than ever before. This means everything to me and I have missed it so much. I bought some new protein powder, an upgraded pre workout and did a little shopping haul. Working out is the one thing that keeps me sane. It is one of the biggest passions I have; if you haven’t noticed already. It’s taken its toll on me not being able to push myself to get there. This week starts fresh and I’ve meal prepped food for the week and I have set a schedule to get there at least 3 times this week. Planning to make it your job to get there is important. Health is important. Life gets chaotic and work gets crazy in everyone’s lives. But losing this is something I could never tolerate for much longer. I have been absent on Instagram for a month and I came back mainly because I missed the health and fitness posts on here. I’ve gotten some great ideas already with recipes since being back. Being surrounded by people pushing you to get out there really does help. Glad to be back. #mypassion #ivemissedyou #maketimeforwhatsimportant #food #mealprep #cleaneating #eatclean #nutrition #healthyfood #health #healthy #healthyeating #healthyliving #healthylifestyle #gym #gymlife #workout #fit #fitnessmotivation #fitspo #fitnessjourney #fitspiration #motivation #determination #dedication #hardwork #goals #life #summer

I will kiss your scars as you heal, I will sit by your side and hold your hand. I will write invisible secrets and paragraphs and maybe a book into your skin at night, while you sleep warm next to me.” -Unknown My wife and I have just returned back to Instagram after a month without it. It was actually really nice to detox away from all social media for the most part. Life has been hectic and really busy. A lot has changed. But for the most part, I’m back. On the 3rd it was our 8 month anniversary. If you ever get married or you are married, I am sure you will or have experienced the moments of “I can’t believe your are my husband/wife” I get those often. I most likely always will. I am astounded really that this girl is my wife. If you ever believe that every marriage or couple you see on social media is ‘goals’ just a reminder that social media is not the place for transparency for most people. People exaggerate lives they don’t live and show off things they can’t even afford. Marriage is really hard work. It will teach you things that any relationship out there cannot do. After all, this is the person you are assigned to be with for the rest of your life. No one else will know the ins and outs of you but your partner. Marriage has made me stronger, wiser, truly just a better man. I am more grounded than I’ve ever been. I am more motivated, determined, and strong because of my wife. I work 65-70 hours a week because of her. It’s all for her. I miss her quite terribly. She’s really the only company I can tolerate in large doses. I can’t be around anyone for long without my battery being drained. I just want you to know that everything I do, I do it for YOU. At the end of double and even triple shifts, I just want to go home. By home I mean wherever you are. It doesn’t matter where. You are the motivation that gets me through these long hours. I want you to know that everything you’ve ever been through with all the other clowns and just chaos in your own life outside of that, that I want to be different for you. All the scars you have make you my warrior. You are one of the strongest women I’ve ever known. I admire you so much.

It’s really all you can do. Surround yourself with things and people that are good for your mental health. Make room for the good in life. Don’t be sucked into the wave of negativity. Just let it all flow. What’s good will stay and what’s not right will go. It’ll only go if you let it. Everyone and everyhing you put time into is an investment. Be mindful of what drains you. When something isn’t working, let it go. Embrace the new and forget the old. #newbeginnings #newchapter #positivevibes #mentalhealth #quotes #quote #wordsofwisdom #words #wordoftheday #wordporn #foodforthought #writersofig #writingcommunity #writerscommunity #writers #writingcommunity #wisdom #motivation #determination #life #encouragement #goals #dreams #healthymind #inspiration #freedom #peace #poetry #poem

Not exactly the best picture, but I can’t always be a perfectionist. Well, that doesn’t cut it for me. But here I am.. posting a picture that isn’t exactly great. Oh well.. for now 🤷🏽‍♂️Four hours and three stores later.. and don’t regret a moment spent shopping for this great stuff. Not everything pictured and still shopping for more of the meats and rest of the stuff tomorrow. As exhausted as I’ve been, this most certainly made my day finished off great. It is a good investment of my time. I’d gladly exhaust myself for this any day. Food gets me excited. #realfood #eattogrow #nutrition #nourish #eatclean #cleaneating #health #healthybreakfast #healthyfood #healthyeating #healthychoices #healthyliving #healthylifestyle #motivation #determination #dedication #workflow #hardwork #mealprep #fitspo #fitspiration #fitfam #fitspiration #fitnessjourney #fitnessmotivation #gym #gymmotivation #workout #mypassion

Could not get any better than this. Finding someone that motivates and pushes you is so important. Someone who is really for you wants to see you do the things you enjoy. A real partner wouldn’t let you miss the gym; they’d push you to get there and make time. This is so hot when people do this. It is extremely attractive. Your partner should be your biggest fan and support. I’d always want someone to do what they enjoy and make time. Motivation is rare these days when it comes to relationships. Everyone is so selfish. Appreciate the real ones who push you to get there and reach your goals. Make time for what’s important and what helps you and your health and mind. #realrelationshipgoals #imissthegym #health #healthyfood #healthymind #healthy #healthyeating #healthyliving #healthyrecipes #healthychoices #healthylifestyle #fit #fitspo #fitspiration #fitnessjourney #fitfam #fitnessmotivation #fitnessaddict #gym #gymmotivation #workout #motivation #determination #dedication #hardwork #maketimeforwhatsimportant #nutrition #cleaneating #mealprep

I’m not anything that people expect. I am mysterious and I make people question. No one truly knows me, and I’m okay with that. I like the idea of being who I am without people having any idea. I truly enjoy being different. I’ve been different all of my life. I don’t blend in at all, I’ve always stood out. Most people don’t really want to know you. They would much rather come up with their own ideas of who they think you are and then eventually judge you down the line. Many people think they may know you, but who we choose to show our true selves too all depends on us. Most people don’t know you; they just know what they think their idea is of you. Peoples opinions have always been irrelevant. Not much can get to me. I don’t ever allow it. Much of society is focused on fitting in. It is wrapped up in movements and going along with other people’s views even if it is complete foolishness. Why not be your own leader and be different. Those who succeed choose to lead and not follow the crowd. This world is filled with stupidity, this is a very straightforward reality. Don’t be sucked into stupidity. Many people in life tell you to follow your heart, I follow my mind. I always have. It doesn’t fail me. Your heart can be misleading, it involves emotions. Emotions can and do change daily. Your mind is logical and practical; it flows with ideas and gives the right motives. Wherever you go and whatever you do, take your mind with you. 🧠 #useyourmind #beyourownleader #quotes #quotes #followyourmind #mind #healthymind #life #psychology #wordsofwisdom #foodforthought #truth #wisdom #motivation #determination #writerscommunity #writersofig #writersofinstagram #words #writingcommunity #encouragement #wordoftheday #quoteoftheday #inspirationalquotes #freedom #reason #logic #introvert #intj #different

By the time Sunday hits I worked 60+ hours. It has been hard to get working out or anything else in besides work and sleep(I barely even sleep)And although I hate excuses of any kind, it’s just been difficult to even sit down and eat a meal. Not working out has played a huge role in my mental health. It sucks being away from it. I’m so glad I made time to go today. It is so important to make time for what is important. Work is necessary. Working so much you barely even have a moment to even breathe and neglect what’s important, it’s not good. Money is great, but even in the shallow minded world we live in, it isn’t everything. I am enjoying peace right now and actually sitting down to eat and read a book. The biggest barrier has been encountering so many people. I’ve been mentally drained so much I can barely even say hello to someone because I’m trying to save it for work. That’s actually me naturally(not intentionally either) So for dinner I made this- Sautéed kale, cauliflower rice, and center cut pork loin chop. The book is an Edgar Allen Poe book; one of my favorite writers of all time. #maketimeforwhatmatters #relax #recharge #dinner #food #health #healthyfood #healthymind #healthyliving #healthychoices #healthylifestyle #healthyeating #healthyrecipes #fit #fitspo #cleaneats #cleaneating #fitfam #fitspiration #fitnessjourney #fitnessmotivation #motivation #determination #gym #workout #wordsofwisdom #writers #edgarallanpoe #reading #intj
