My self-summary
Christmas wishes as I think about the letter to Virginia about Santa ... I sent the following to friends this morning and wish the same for all of you ... Merry Christmas wishes for everyone to believe ... to believe in something beautiful and peaceful and loving that you cannot prove other than by the sensation of the joy in your heart - your friend in the magical faith of Christmas, joseph

I've been through the cycles of the major categories ... financial, emotional, family, spiritual. I've learned - or better yet, it's been reinforced - that it sometimes takes tough challenges to discover that what counts are the true connections of the spirits of people in your sphere. Once you reach that baseline, you are free to see the beauty of what is profound happiness, in my humble opinion. Everything after being genuinely happy is a bonus. And some days are really lottery wins.

This doesn't mean that I don't still enjoy going to the gym 5 times a week and biking and hiking and walking all over the islands or the NFL cities. A lot. Or that I don't love a fabulous meal at a favorite haunt, but I don't see grilling as a consolation. It's a joy to know that life is good simply because it is.

My boys. They're a big part of my life. They're young, they're fabulous, and they've taught me more about life than all of the graduate degrees I've racked up, the business experiences I've notched, and the relationships I've experienced. One day, they'll learn that they've taught me more than I've taught them, but by then, I'll be drooling on myself and they won't be able to extract a fee as taking money in a situation like that would be abuse of the elderly. If you're a part of my life, they are as well.

To me, I've learned it's about being as engaged as possible at a genuine level of who I am. With who you truly are. Everything above that is the icing on the cake.

Favorite bands, movie trivia, places visited ... all of that is fun to learn about each other. We'll love some of the same, be dumbfounded by some of what the other likes. But, to me, being a fan of a particular band or disliking a particular movie isn't the baseline. Smiling innately when thinking about the other person ... such simplicity makes for real happiness. At least what I have to offer and with whom I'm looking to connect.

Make it a great day!!
The first things people usually notice about me
I love to engage and be engaged. People say that even if they don't know me, they feel like they've known me for a long time even after just a short period of time. I also get mistaken for Brad Pitt a lot, but I quickly correct people on that. :)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
everything
On a typical Friday night I am
I don't think the word "typical" fits into my lifestyle vocabulary. "Eclectic" fits me so much better.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am ridiculously amazing. :)
You should message me if
... you are a truly, genuine spirit who thinks that what I've written sounds like the best way to take life by the handles and want to experience a little more tomorrow than you did today.
