It’s Okay to be Human

It’s okay to have everything, but still want more.

It’s okay to spend years learning how to walk a spiritual path, but still display non-spiritual emotions when something knocks you off your path.

It’s okay to be enlightened, but still express strong opinions.

It’s okay to be calm, but still show anger.

It’s okay to be happy, but still feel sorrow.

It’s okay show courage, but still admit to being afraid.

It’s okay to love, but still feel hate.

Why?

It’s part of being human.

It’s what we signed up for.

This experience is what we wanted.

So, embrace the totality of who you are, even if you think you don’t know who you are yet… or even if you’re redefining what it means to be you.

It’s okay… because you’re here. Completely, fully here. Right now.

All of you.

Embrace your experience and love it.

Because it’s okay to be human.

Real Men Feel: Episode 41, Year End Rituals to Release the Old and Welcome the New

Real Men Feel

Year End Rituals to Release the Old and Welcome the New, Episode 41, December 27, 2016

On the final episode of Real Men Feel for 2016, Andy Grant and Appio Hunter discuss a variety of ways to close out 2016 and welcome 2017, including rituals around journaling, gratitude, meditation, burning, goals and much more. If you are tired of traditions around getting drunk and then resolving to never drink again, this is the show for you.

The RMF shares a number of practices that Andy and Appio have used as well as some they’ve recently discovered. They also touch on that dreaded word, “goals.” You are invited to wind down 2016 with awareness. When looking forward and planning your 2017, remember that 90 days is the motivational horizon built into you brains.

New Warrior Training Adventure (NWTA) with The ManKind Project

This past weekend I took part in the signature program of the ManKind Project, the New Warrior Training Adventure (NWTA) weekend. I learned of it thanks to Real Men Feel when we spoke with Boysen Hodgson in episode #26.

I’ve been to dozens of multi-day personal growth events, but never one exclusively with men. I hoped I would gain some clarity around my working with men, and I was also looking forward to learning more about the ManKind Project and how they run an event as I do see live events for Real Men Feel some day soon.

I gained all of that and more… a LOT more. All my expectations were insanely exceeded.

As I like to do when I’m venturing off into the unknown, I made a “before” and “after” video. So here they are.

 Before NWTA – October 21, 2016

After NWTA – October 24, 2016

Check out NWTA, they are held all over the world, and sign up! I cannot recommend this enough!

I’ll share more in the October 25 episode of Real Men Feel which is being recorded live Tuesday at 8pm Eastern. If you join us live you’ll be able to share comments, ask questions and even be fully seen and heard as part of the show if you choose. We use a platform called Zoom and you’ll need to download some software the first time you use it. RealMenFeel.org/show

UPDATE: The show is live and you can check it out here.

The journey continues.

What Does “Real Men Feel” Mean?

People often tell me the like the sound of “Real Men Feel” but then ask, what does it mean? Well, to me, it means a world where men and women see that being real, being authentic, being tough also means being emotional – as in being aware of your own emotions, being willing to feel them and express them too. It doesn’t always mean expressing them on video, but that is often how I choose to go so that others can see I’m still a man, even when I’m feeling.


This video was originally posted on my blog a couple of days ago. I showed it do my dad yesterday and he really liked it.

Mother’s Day

It is quite fitting, or a random coincidence, that I’m launching this site, Real Men Feel, on Mother’s Day. Mothers are the one thing most men in our society seem to be encouraged to love, even if that isn’t expressed verbally. Think of all the athletes interviewed on live TV after they did whatever great thing they did to win the big game and they sign off with, “Hi, Mom!”
Whether your mother is here or gone, your relationship is close or challenging, you wouldn’t be here without her so send her some love today. Hold her in your thoughts, pay her a visit, send a gift… your options are endless. Even if you can’t stand your mother, recognize that you simply would not be if not for her.

10 Things Mom Never Told You

Hi, Mom! I love you, mom. I miss you. Please forgive me. Thank you. I’m sorry. Word to your mother. Happy Mother’s Day!

  Word To Your Mother
