Dedication: I created this project in part for my boy, Nick Surfer Ocean. I hope it helps him in his life and that he can come back to this (and me, unless I am not around) when he has questions, needs guidance and reminders, or just wants to learn more about my perspectives on life, love and everything in between. As for everyone else, I hope you gain at least 1 golden nugget of wisdom from any of my life lessons, so that you can use it to empower yourself and better your life because Y.O.L.O :)
