Where do I begin?

Hey. I'm Mike.


I created this website for God knows what. I say to myself maybe I'll talk about my cybersecurity career, maybe some personal stuff, maybe some music - a little bit of everything I guess. At least the stuff that matters to me.


Tonight I think about how my dad just overcame open-heart surgery. I think about what it means to be alive...


I think I went numb during the week of surgery to protect myself.


By the grace of God, he made it through and we get to spend more time together...Amen to that.


I really love my dad and want the best for my family.


I want the happiness that money can buy. I know that's a hard caveat but the world ain't all sunshine and rainbows as Stallone said.


I don't know how but I know we will make enough to enrich our lives with experiences that allow us to thrive together.


So, that's my why.


My why for getting up early.


My why for not drinking.


My why for not smoking.


My why for choosing the path that is straight and narrow.


My why for working hard.


I used to work hard out of ego and enriching my life but that's short-lived.


I want to give more to those that gave me everything.


Isn't that the dream? To retire our folks?


What more could I ask for?


I love my family.
