Life Can Be So Surreal At Times

20180130_082521 (2).jpg

I have had one heck of an adventure this year, and it's just getting started! 

I have made 4 TV appearances, written an article for a parenting magazine, I made one of THE most inspirational road trips you could only imagine in our dreams.

I now can add The San Antonio Book Festival to this list, April 7th 2018!

It is OFFICIAL I will be an exhibitor in the children's area where I will have books available for sale, and will also sign them. 

To think that 4 years ago Jason's Imagination was just an idea, and a few words on a piece of paper. I can even remember being 500' in the air on a cell tower, looking out, seeing some of the best sunrises and sunsets making the decision to take a chance on a dream and here I am, book and all.

Folks, I know life can drag you down, make it feel impossible to dream, to feel a sense of purpose, leaving you feeling like nothing more than another cog in the wheel, but trust yourself, trust your dreams, trust your passions... just trust yourself. If I can do it, anyone can.  

We Are All Imagination

What an AMAZING experience this was. This morning I had the pleasure of discussing Jason's Imagination "The Rain King" with the awesome folks at "We Are Austin" on CBSAUSTIN.

I have to admit I was a little nervous, and it although it showed, hosts Taylor and Trevor were fantastic at making me feel welcomed and like an old friend easing the first time jitters. 

This was a lifelong dream come true, being on TV. I had always though it would have been for music, but to know I still found a way to create something positive and constructive to share has me smiling from ear to ear. 

We are not guaranteed or promised any form of success, but we ARE guaranteed a fighting chance. As I said in my last entry, life can knock you around sometimes, but if you can stand to take the hits and persevere you might just end up on top. 

A huge thank you to Taylor, Trevor and the entire crew at We Are Austin for giving me such a heartfelt opportunity to share my story with you and your viewers.

***Publicity Update Jan. 10th 2018***

Success is a journey, not a destination. The doing is often more important than the outcome.
— Arthur Ashe

Well my dear friends I am proud to announce that I will be discussing Jason's Imagination, and the future of the series, LIVE on San Antonio Living Thursday 10AM Jan. 18th 2018 on WOAI-TV channel 4. ***Stream it LIVE at www.news4sa.com

I am unbelievably fortunate that an idea I drafted up in a work truck one day turned into a published book backed by my family and friends, and my extraordinary publicist Courtney (@Smith Publicity) has begun its accent to a success I could only have dreamed about 4 years ago. 

I know life can sometimes feel like a Semi-Charmed Life when the roads you travel leave you bumped and bruised, but if you just hold tightly to the steering wheel and keep your GPS coordinates to the destination you'd surprise yourself that all those detours, stop signs, pot-holes, highway miles and wrecks were exactly what you needed to be the person you needed to be at the light at the end of your journey.

The Sky of an Ever-glowing Life

2017 has finally passed and made way for a new year, and thankfully so.

Life's drum beats strong with a deep resonance and to the core of our souls. We feel the breath of the cold winter wind on our faces still this January, maybe a little unsure of our journey, but with determination and perseverance to overcome last year's struggles. 

We try too many times to rewind the VHS moments of our lives when the present becomes just to heavy to hold. I know from personal experience how crippling that fear can be to move on, move forward, let go, say goodbye and embrace the sky of an ever-glowing life ahead of you. We build our walls so high we lose sight of all the beauty we have surrounding us afraid of the dark yet living in it everyday. 

This year tear down that wall leaving it in crumbling pieces on the ground, crushing those fears, insecurities and vulnerabilities into dust as you walk forward, following the beat of life's drum. 

"I will never forget you my American Love, and I'll always remember you wild as they do come", that's my drum. What will be yours?
