“What is YOUR code?”


In life we are born, child, teenager, young adult, adult, senior then death. No where along this path are we given a book of instructions on our roles. We observe, learn, practice and execute what we believe to be our new roles as we pass through each stage of life.

I can only speak as a man, for I am a man, I was taught of fortitude, loyalty, integrity, passion, respect and many other principles. I was also taught a man must live by a code. We must have a code which in later years becomes the center piece of our character.

As I sit here now, I look back and see the many roads I have taken, the many miles I have traveled and the many changes I have gone through. I have burned bridges, I have rebuilt new bridges, I have lost my way or stayed standing undecided on which road I should take. I have the guilt of being given a second chance and I blew it knowing that chance is gone; if you are ever given a second chance don’t blow it, learn from your mistakes and fix what is fixable. I have learned to let go and on some I am in the process of letting go.

As men, our role is to be the leader; the one who will take his group to the other side. The man who will be there no matter what with words, in presence, lending an ear or if needed a shoulder, the protector, the provider, the rock, the human with true emotions and feelings, the passer of his heritage.

You see, I write of the above because I had lost my way, I had forgotten how to be a real man. A very good friend of mine told me, “Martin, to find your way back read “ManUpAdvice” and remember where you came from”. I did re-read my writings and it’s taken a long while … I have found my way back.

Now that I sit here, I look forward to my next adventure, my next step on my journey. I may or may not slow down, lol, I will enjoy every step. I will rebuild myself with the center of my life being my code. I will not look back, I will not regret, I will weep, I will smile, I will laugh. Life is way too short, enjoy each step.

My code, “I choose to LIVE”.
