Hey, dudes. I'm going to take a break for awhile. I think writing here is awesome but I need to ditch technology for awhile. Between video games, YouTube, Facebook, texting, NetFlix and this web site I virtually don't need to leave the house. My God is everywhere but, for me, He's most discernible in light and fresh air :) In Beauty. I need to get out of the house more. I need to ride my bike more. I need to hike more. I need to skydive more. I need to ride my motorcycle through the canyons more. I need to do more yoga. I need to exercise. It's so weird to say all this as if it should take any effort. Growing up I was never really into tech or indoor fun besides Street Fighter II and Donkey Kong Country. I was pretty active. Always on a skateboard or snowboard. But, i've become progressively reclusive over the past 2 years. A home body. It's bazaar. To say it kind of grosses me out. It's not me. I also struggle with seasonal depression which snowboarding always made pretty much non existent but since my motorcycle wreck a couple years ago I haven't been able to go. So right now particularly I've got some depression to shake. And I'm not going to shake it sitting inside all day getting fat and popping excedrin.

Don't know when I'll be back. Maybe, hopefully, when I come back I'll bring glad tidings of great joy with me. Stories of success and the awesomeness and grace of Jesus. I really enjoy your guys' company, the colorful conversations, and I will miss you all. I'm going to miss the wisdom you all have to impart. Even yours little brother (Mint). I think this is a good and helpful place to be. It's just not the best place for me at this time. I love you all. Even you Kickit. Peace.

And remember, if God can love a dirty scoundrel like me so much He wants to kiss my face off...He most defiantly digs you :) See you 'round la vida.


Some fresh air    
"I think nature is amazing. No distraction just you and the wild. Its almost start tho. You're forced to think. Thinking is scary because we come to terms with ourselves. I'm really good at distracting myself. Amazing at it. If I dont have access to those like in the wild, I have to think about what I'm doing wrong in life and than I get sad haha. But its good for us.

So I hope you do well Speak, breaks are always good. I dont know if my break from here helped or not, but I had a strong urge to do so and dont regret it. My only regret is not strengthing my testimony. I assumed it would come.

Anyway! Good luck hope you enjoy it."

"Jesus rejected temptation. When confronted by the great tempter himself, Jesus "[yielded] not to the temptation‚ÄĚ. He countered with scripture. Gospel commandments and standards are our protection also, and like the Savior, we may draw strength from the scriptures to resist temptation."
