Your loneliness is a gift. Stop ignoring it.

I’ve had the opportunity to meet some really amazing guys since I’ve begun this journey. One of the topics that’s really resonated with me is “loneliness.” My friend, Phil McAuliffe can speak on that subject so much better than I can… and he graciously agreed to write a guest post. You can find him on Instagram or here on his website, thelonelinessguy.com

Phil McAuliffe, The Loneliness Guy (Check out his website here —-> thelonelinessguy)

The thoughts and feelings that come from feeling lonely – or socially-isolated, if you prefer – are awful. We can spend years running away from them. We spend so much time and energy hustling for the acceptance of others. We spend so much time numbing the pain or denying that there’s even a problem. 

Before I continue, I want to say how proud of you I am for simply reading these words. I know that it took courage for you to begin reading this. I see you. I honour you. I’m proud of you.

Go Under the Knife, or Go to the Gym

In the movie, Death Becomes Her, Madeline Ashton’s (Meryl Streep) lamentation on the inevitable decline of her youth, “Wrinkled wrinkled little star, hope they never see the scars” probably hits a little closer to home than most of us would like to admit. For thousands of years people have dreamt of, written about and searched for the ever elusive “Fountain of Youth.” From early Greek and Roman mythology to modern day (think, websites devoted to botched plastic surgery) we have always been obsessed with trying to fend off the ravishes of aging. But before you make an appointment with that Beverly Hills surgeon, or a deal with the Devil, consider this, there are several ways in which exercise can help keep you young!

Is The Gym Judgy?

The other night I went on a first date and I experienced something that I hadn’t in a very long time.  Before I let your imagination run too wild, I will just tell you.  It was the first time in quite a while that I experienced being the “new guy” in the gym. I am pretty sure I have you totally confused now at this point.  I can almost hear you thinking… first date, you went to a GYM? How romantic!  That’s the kind of weird things that could happen when you ask a personal trainer out.
