Hawaii Life

EatSleepDad is back online!

The last time I logged into my site was back in October.

BTW, 5 points to the person who tells me where the photo above was taken.

Why you should write about everything

What if nobody wrote anything down.  Would the world be what it is today? Would we know details of the past? Of new found worlds, ideas, inventions? I like to write.  I enjoy putting my ideas, thoughts, and events of the day…

A valuable lesson on why failure is an option

In recent years, I’ve read stories, listened to podcast interviews and watched videos on those who’ve achieved success in life.  No matter the type of success they experienced, they all had one thing in common…
