This year I pledge to do my utmost to form myself into a man every day. Exercise, kindness, discipline, prayer, music, balance.
To reforge my roots as a basis for my future, to be the best husband, father, brother, friend, and colleague possible.
To stand for what is true, holy, pure, right, just, and beautiful, in the face of a world obsessed with falsehood, evil, twistedness, error, inequality, and every type of moral, intellectual, and spiritual ugliness.
I love that Uptown Funk ending! After the beautiful words on growing into a new creation, “don’t velvet ne just watch” leaves me ready to hit the dance floor–figuratively and literally!
Imagine if EVERY man on the planet got up every morning and decided to live his day this way. Our world would be transformed overnight. Thank you, Nik.
