My name is Brian Gardner and welcome to my website. This is where I share the honest things that matter in life. I believe the internet is an obfuscated lens which we hope to be seen through and a staged version we tragically spend most of our time creating.
There is a tremendous amount of substance found within the little things in life, and that is where I want to live deliberately. There are way too many blogs and websites around that skim the surface of life, and this my attempt at doing it the right way.
If you’re interested in getting deeper, my journal is where I share my experiences in life.
Setting some expectations.
I don’t want to apologize for things that I say, mainly because I feel there’s intrinsic value in people hearing truth. In my opinion, it’s a disservice to everyone when we avoid how we really feel and choose to hold back.
Even though I’m a Christian, I still have the same struggles as the next person. I want to embrace the challenges I face every day without the fear of being judged by anyone. And in return, I promise to do the same for you.
I’ll be upfront and admit this is going to be more of a journal than a place for self-help. I don’t want to tell you what to do and why you should do it, rather why I think what I think and why I do the things I do.
With that said, I reserve the right to write about anything. From my spiritual journey and walk with God, to my infatuation with Sarah McLachlan and Starbucks. And, of course, everything in between. There is a tremendous amount of substance found within the little things in life, and that is where I want to live deliberately.
I’m so glad you’re here, and sincerely welcome you with open arms.
P.S. If you’re still reading this, good for you. The journey is the reward.
I encourage you to go and seek your Shangri-La. Whatever road this takes you down or however this looks in your life, keep this in mind — Live intentionally. Live authentically.
