10. Banish. Let go of a thought or action from the first half of your life that is no longer working for you. When we asked ourselves this deceptively simple question, we both decided we needed to banish our fear of not being liked. By saying it out loud, we were able to call attention to the […]

Good day in terms of returning to work. Only a short class, and not so easy after a good while out of it. Spoke to my sister and got frustrated with her that she would not believe anything I told her, regarding all that’s been. Not her fault, though. It’s just all too farfetched. But […]

If I’m to be successful, I need to carve out time to write. The precursor to writing time is hours spent checking emails and social messaging. And I wonder where the time went and why I’m not being more productive. Even now, when I could be editing a story, I find myself catching up and […]

Letters to a Small Baby

  I was writing tonight, out on the patio at nine o’clock. Enjoying a rare glass of wine. Which we would have shared. You coding, me writing. My writing’s going well. I’m pleased with what’s playing out on the ‘page’. I’d be so excited to share it with you. You’d recognise what I’m writing. And […]

Power naps are those short, revitalizing rest periods we take throughout the day to get our energy back up when we need it most. They’re short, sweet, and certainly feel effective whether you’re a sleep-deprived college student or working long hours at your job. But it’s natural to wonder whether these short naps can actually […]

Deconstruction of me

I understand why Superman needed a fortress of solitude.  It’s because the world and the people he swore to protect sucked.  The human race didn’t deserve him, so from time-to-time he needed to get away from the world and regroup his thoughts and feelings so that he didn’t use his laser eyes to burn the […]

While designing and decorating most of the spaces in our house, I try to choose colors and styles that my wife and I will both like. We have a lot of style preferences in common–we both like modern things with traditional elements, a lot of natural light, a little bit of a farmhouse vibe, and […]

Founder of Fresh Ego Kid says the business is his ‘future’ The founder of the ‘fresh kid’ t-shirt worn by shamed footballer Adam Johnson has slammed him for undermining his years of ‘blood, sweat and tears’ in getting the business off the ground. Marvin Morgan says he is ‘very upset’ that the convicted paedophile was wearing his merchandise, over which he had ‘no control’, but which had been harmed by Johnson’s actions, and had damaged a brand of one of the ‘few black business owners in retail’. Johnson was snapped wearing the clothing in Middlesborough four months after his release from prison. Pictures showed Johnson chatting to a blonde woman dressed in a lavender skirt and crop top who was sat on the pavement, as he wore the white t-shirt with the words ‘Fresh Kid’. Mr Morgan told Metro.co.uk: ‘I’ve worked hard for the last 10 years trying to get this business off the ground, this is my future, what Johnson’s done and the way it’s been reported on, completely ignores the struggle of the business. Johnson was snapped wearing the clothing in Middlesborough four months after his release from prison (Picture: REX) ‘We’ve faced so many barriers, and this just completely ignores all of that. ‘We’re a small business that’s trying to make a difference, we’ve been involved in the local community, in lots of initiatives, tackling crime for example. ‘The whole purpose of setting up this brand and business was to give back’. Mr Morgan says he has received support from a number of footballers who wear the brand, with Raheem Sterling writing on his Instagram page: ‘Built your business for it only be put in perspective like this, I’m truly sorry bro.’ Mr Morgan was a former professional footballer, who decided to set up fashion brand Fresh Ego Kid as a plan for a life after football (Picture: Marvin Morgan) He added that Johnson’s decision to wear the t-shirt was a ‘total disgrace, which undermines our hard work’. ‘We’ve worked hard to get our brand into major retailers, the last thing we want is our brand associated with him’. Mr Morgan was a former professional footballer, who decided to set up the streetwear fashion brand Fresh Ego Kid, which is adored by Dele Alli, Anthony Joshua and Romelu Lukaku, as his playing career came to an end. It gave the ambitious Manchester-born, former Aldershot favourite, a plan for a life after football. Johnson, 32, a winger who played for Middlesborough, Sunderland and Manchester City, was jailed for sexual activity with a 15-year-old fan.
