Where are the fellas at?

We are closing out another holiday weekend and I see many people out on vacations, gatherings and the like. What I see is a lot of female friend groups out. The fellas seem to be lacking here.

I honestly don’t have the exact answer but I have some theories

1. It’s harder to get guys together, at least in an organized fashion

2. We’re not as big on pictures and capturing every moment

3. We simply don’t get together in the same frequency as women do. Rarely do you see men travel in packs. When me and my dudes went on a cruise early last year, we were the only all male crew on the boat.

I’ve seen guys get together at weddings, cookouts, playing games and sporting events. Outside of that, the list is short.

Fellas, we need to do better in this regard. We’re losing too many people in various ways. We love to slam and bash each other, rather than praise and hang out. It’s time we do more of the latter.

Being That Person

Everyone needs that go to person, whether we are atop the world or are down and out.

Who is your person? Are you anybody’s person?

I was reminded this week of all this with some family and even local situations that required me to help out.

I am always willing to lend a helping hand and look for long term solutions to certain problems. One thing I like to do is gather with like minded individuals, especially ones who specialize in certain area which require my assistance and expertise.

Provide whatever you can to that person: advice, prayers, food, clothing, a listening ear. No one is too good to receive help and we could all benefit from some.

If there is an itch for you to assist and be someone’s person, hit me up and I will put you in touch with certain people to assist. Each one, teach one, reach one!

Social Exclusion: Video Games

Many love playing video games, especially fighter games where they can match wits and skills with other people.

I have had my years and times with games in general, from childhood to adulthood. I briefly came out of retirement against and with some guys at the coffeeshop. Some are deep into fighting games. And the good ones like Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat. Currently the main game they are playing is MK11 (wow have there been that many sequels?).

They could have overlooked me since I don’t play much anymore, I just talk and know the game. But no they extended an invite for me to dust off the cobwebs. I won’t lie, it was fun and it brought back a lot of memories. I plan on playing again and more often, just not like I once did.

It means a lot to include people, even when they may not be interested. Just leave the door open and don’t assume they wouldn’t want a part in it.

We need more people like these gamers. I like how genuine they are and want to give everyone a chance to play. It’s the opposite of many games and it’s a great thing.
