You can be broken, but still have immense value…

Forty Something Life As We Know It

As a Forty Plusser I had my fair shares of wicked curveballs in life.

For too long in my life I have tried to ignore things that needed fixing and attention.  I tried to live a happy go lucky life.  I lived a life of total pretence.  I did not want people to notice how broken I was inside.  I was ashamed to let down my guard.  I was too afraid to drop the mask!!!  I was afraid to show my true feelings.  To me, these ghosts of my past was too embarrassing to share with anyone!

To me, healing was a 360 degrees U-turn.  I also know that I won’t be my old self EVER.  My old self had evaporated in the air.  My old self is gone forever. But that’s okay!!! I have reached a point in my life where I just couldn’t care less! I tend to practise more selflove.  I am stronger.  I am more confident.  I don’t have…

Wassup world. I am Keyshaun Jamel Collins and what can I say about myself. First thing is that I never thought that I would be sharing my life, thoughts, experiences, ideas, and dreams aka my business with the world. I’m simply an introverted guy who views the world differently but prefers to keep to myself. I graduated from college nine months ago with my Bachelors of Science degree in psychology. That’s a big accomplishment for me. Yet, that’s not about me. I am a Chicago native born and raised to a black dad and mom who are still married till this day. That don’t describe me. I got a Puerto Rican and Mexican fiancée; my guy friends I had to break free from them because they were jealous. Couldn’t understand how I had the tools to get that one girl, while they stepped up to the plate swung and missed. That’s not about me. Went outside day after day practicing on what started as a dream in hopes of one day becoming a reality. I did not have the mental strength to let this curricular activity go, so I could realize that this was meant to be metaphor to teach me life and prepare me for my true gift. Now that’s me. I am a firm believer in to whom much is given, much is required (Luke 12:48). My goal is to give back, it is very easy to receive so much in life, but the real reward is to give back that knowledge so you can help the next fellow man under you struggling in whatever his/her situation may be. Through this website I have an opportunity to inspire, encourage and motivate. Paint a picture with my words while telling a story about my struggles, hard aches and pains; also the down falls and faults that I bare witness to everyday while I interact with numerous people everyday. How am I able to achieve this, simple I know myself. I know my self worth as a man because I envision it, claim it, speak it and walk in my authority confidently because I understand it. Like my dad and mom always say “If you don’t stand for something than you’ll fall for anything. Now that’s me.

  4. The analogy of the egg as our lives is insightful. The inner part of the egg can also reflect upon our inner self. We all carry so much potential inside our being, just like the egg.
