Truly a very big night for one of my closest friends @matthewdeldegan and his creation @lovebottherobot.  Congratulations on all your hard work which has led you to where you are now. Be satisfied with each and every single accomplishment you’ve achieved and I was proud to be one of the many standing in line for one of the 30 initial #Lovebot toys at the #thisisnotatoy / #thisisnotaworkparty event tonight @designexchange. Also, I was very happy to officially meet your Mother and Grandma, and your Dad is definitely one of the coolest cats around. Much love brother. Once again, you’re an inspiration to the team and myself and thank you for your loyalty, honesty and friendship. Let’s keep reaching for the stars… #designexchange #magicpony #toy #art #artist #limited #21of30 #official #exhibit #signed #firstrelease #family #friends #congratulations #hardwork

This is probably one, if not the MOST important purchase I’ll make in my entire life.  

It’ll be the first thing I look at when I wake up, and the last thing I’ll look at before I fall asleep. It’ll remind me that the road travelled is just as important as the finish line. That there’s more to work than just saying it, but in fact doing it and recognizing that you’ve accomplished the task at hand. 

It’s the small goals and wins that equate to the success story. The short term and long term planning and sticking to them. 

I was inspired by my brother @matthewdeldegan who has a massive white board which details all his short term commitments and work all the way up to his yearly goals, plans and ideas. 

I’ve never been one to record, check off or acknowledge the process/method but I gained the valuable knowledge from Matt, that success isn’t just monetary or  in the physical… But just as much mental and emotional. 

Seeing him check off tasks and plan out his not too distant future left me inspired and wanting to do the same, to know what it feels like to acknowledge the goals accomplished and earned. 

And regardless of what anyone says, I realized it’s ok to pat yourself on the back for a job well done…

I put work ahead of personal priorities because it helps numb me to the idea that I don’t have certain things I probably should have/be experiencing at my age. I’m not necessarily at the age of retirement but there’s things in my life I wish I had. 

The one thing I’m always thankful for is family and friends and I’m very happy and proud of the beautiful bundle of joy @clavs18 and her husband Jermaine (swear you got IG bruh) have brought into this world. 

Sofia Clavo Reyes is the most absolute precious thing and I can’t believe how unbelievable it is to have seen you both first hand grow into mature, young, professional… Parents. Dun dun dunnnnnn!

Arvo, you’re the first from the crew to have one stillllllll… Hahaha. I love you both from the bottom of my heart and if you guys ever need anything I’m only a social media direct message, text, phone call, skype, door knock away. Congratulations guys… Much love.

I fight demons all the time. My vulnerability has always been the fact I’ve wanted to appease others before myself. It’s always been my downfall. 

In a world where nothing really seems to be what you think. The one thing that has always been reliable has been family. Through the ups and downs, family has remained steadfast in keeping me level headed, humble and earnest. I’ve tried to be selfless but it has come to the point where that sacrifice is ultimately not knowing what truly makes you happy. It’s a sad but honest truth and something I live with at all times. 

My smile isn’t fake, it is never forced… but deep within is an uncertainty that regardless about how successful I am or have the potential to be, I’m struggling with things people don’t see on the surface. 

To the family that extends beyond my bloodlines, thanks for being there. Your loyalty is appreciated above all and understand that’s why I call you guys fam. To everyone else who’s acquainted towards me, thanks for being cool. 

In the end my purpose isn’t to be the owner of a cool brand, or be acknowledged as a designer, or be that guy who used to dress cool… I just want to be that guy who was a good child to his parents, a loyal and good friend and perhaps one day should it be in Gods will, a pretty awesome Father as well. 

Random Saturday thoughts… 

Peace social media.
