This is a project devoted to happy men. If you’re here reading this then I suspect you are either a happy man or want to be a happy man. Bravo! You’ll find me to be irreverent, respectful, crass, subtle, obtuse, authentic, and (apparently) conflicted. Men of the world UNITE … or not … whatever. I’ll be working on myself and together maybe we’ll figure out how to be happy, strong, confident and effective men and brilliant communicators. If you’re looking for the same thing, then please read on and participate. If you’re already well adjusted in all these respects, you’ll likely click away but before you go, for shit’s sake, let all us confused warriors know how you did it! In any event, thanks for visiting and I look forward to learning more about you. The header image is by Ken Stoneburg Photography (awesome guy). I laugh when I look at that image but also … I’m kind of hot! Be dangerous today!
The potency of our subconscious beliefs about ourselves. Putting a USB connector into its corresponding slot, I get it wrong 95% of the time and have to then flip it over so it will go in. Why? My understanding of probability — albeit limited — is perpetually blown to shreds when this happens. I don’t …
I like you. Other people would really like you too. I want you to be seen and I want other people to hear your thoughts on things. Your insights certainly keep me thinking. I love that you get me laughing when I’m getting too serious. You really are funny as shit. Like “laughing too hard…gotta …
When you start wandering back through the connective issues, the point at which you get confused, or cannot answer the question, is the point where the problem lies. It’s a conflict. If you allow yourself to be questioned and commit to not allowing diversion, eventually you may arrive at the door of confusion (epic music …
Most men belong to a fraternity
Some are literal fraternities, some are communities concerned with health, wellness, success or career. Others are simply the groups of men who have coalesced with a common identity whether it’s healthy or not. I’m not judging any of it here. I am, however, offering this site for the men who feel they don’t fit in with their current tribe. I also offer this to the men who have identified and live in their power. This is a collection of men’s discussion topics for those of us who want more and who want to be the spectacular men we know we can be.
Working on Myself
This is the current iteration of the work I’m doing on myself. I belong to a group devoted to — among many things — emotional maturity, self-awareness, and authenticity. If you belong to a men’s group, you may find that you’re left with inner dialogue surrounding items that are raised by other men in your group. You may find yourself asking the right questions about something you didn’t know how to approach before. These men’s discussion topics are the leftovers after the meeting has ended.
There are expectations
Participants will be respectful, tolerant to their best ability, authentic when it matters, and not take themselves too seriously. We’re in this together. The whole point of this is to learn about ourselves and how we react to those jabs of anger or fear. How we learn to control impulses and know where those reactions are coming from so we can be happier more connected men.
There will be bad language, immaturity, and sarcasm. There will also be insights, friendship, and growth. To my knowledge, there won’t be cyborgs or robots on the site so the conversation may get messy.
Welcome to the men’s group.
