She wore her scars as her best attire. A stunning dress made of hellfire. After reading this story, I went down the rabbit hole for about an hour. I want to cry and smile and lose my breath at the same time. I admire this family. This is love. I got to thinking what if this was my life? While I would never ask my girlfriend of 7 months to bear the burden, to stick by my side of this happened to me, if she CHOSE to do so like this gentlemen did…….wow. Indescribable. This is pure love. He didn’t settle for her like some would think hes doing. He’s THRIVING with her! Living his best life!
This morning my patience was tested. Stay focused Kris. You got this!
Trauma creates change you don’t choose, healing is about creating change you do choose.
When Albert Einstein met Charlie Chaplin in 1931, Einstein said, “What I admire most about your art is its universality. You do not say a word, and yet the world understands you.” “It’s true.” Replied Chaplin, “But your fame is even greater. The world admires you, when no one understands you.”
Is the father broken himself and lending one of his few remaining pieces to fix his son?
Or is the father a broken, twisted father who’s hurt the child and taken his heart away?
Or maybe the father is stealing from his son, to try and save himself?
How about it could be that the father made the man his son is and is just completing him?
Or the son giving his heart to his father to help his aging father?
Or….. maybe it’s about all the sacrifices the father made in his life to build his son up to give his son the opportunity he never had. Hmmm…. a father passing down the final piece of knowledge to his son as he becomes a man so that the son is prepared for the world & life. All the other pieces started being passed to the son from when he was a baby right through to when the son becomes a man. The knowledge is the father’s life experiences & things he’s learned.
What do you think it could be?
Perspective. Our own experiences shape us & how we see the world around us.
Only a healed person can heal others.
When I started down the path to heal myself I recognized ALL the broken around me. I had to be careful. I could only give if I had enough myself.
I know you may be tired….I know you may be physically & emotionally exhausted….
BUT YOU HAVE GO KEEP GOING.
Shift. The. Paradigm. 👌🏻

Words from my friend Cedric:
About this guy:
This guy, showed up at my door with bags of items off kids X-mas wish lists’ the night before we were supposed to drop off toys and clothes for five families at Garfield Elem. He and his Mom went to 6 different stores to find the stuff. Then, this guy spent 5 hours with me HUNTING for the remaining gifts (3 hours of which were spent looking for that damn Kumi Kreator). We did it. (You can see the fatigue in my eyes.) But the look on that little girl’s face made it all worth it.
This guy is someone I’m PROUD to be in business with. This guy is someone I’m PROUD to call a friend.
This guy is Kris Fraley #myman
Upon this he saw that when he was of anger or knew hurt or felt fear
It was because he was not understanding
And he learned, compassion
And with his eye of compassion
He saw his enemies like unto himself
And he learned love
Then, he was answered…
Nothing ever goes away until it teaches us what we need to know.
We all have things we don’t want to remember, but the thing is, sometimes your mind doesn’t let you forget, if you have something to learn from it.
That doesn’t mean that you need to constantly think about your negative experiences. There’s a fine line between just repeating something negative over and over in your head, and productively processing a negative experience. When thinking about a negative past, ask yourself:
“Do I have healing as my goal?”
If you keep thinking about your negative experience from a goalless perspective, (playing victim, blaming others & reflecting your negative past on your future) you will only end up making that negative experience a part of yourself.
Let your negative experience serve a positive purpose: In the end, we have every reason to let go of the bad feelings, and let only the wisdom remain.
Take it on your own pace. In some time, when you can look at the past without any negative feelings about it, you will see it clearly, and know it doesn’t define you.
This video made me cry this morning. This is who I want to be.
