Vulnerable

It’s New Years! I thought that I wanted to do a post that highlighted this awesome and sad year that we had, but I decided not to do so. This post is one of the most difficult posts that I ever wrote. 2018 is a year that I will NEVER forget. Not because I am recalling all of the sadness that I faced this year. Not because I am thinking about issues that plagued my youth. But because my nephew is NOT letting me write. All I hear is “Uncle Kavie which is what my nephew calls me. I don’t mind it, I know that he won’t be this age forever. Also, he won’t look at me the way that he does now forever. One day I won’t be the cool uncle anymore. I will be the old man screaming “good God Almighty” when I see the young women pass by. I will be speaking my mind and become unapologetic in my speech smelling like a half ounce of loud. Don’t judge me, because I won’t care if you do judge me..

But, I bring up my nephew because he is one of the most sincere people that God put in my life. Whenever I see my nephew he asks if I am hungry. Whenever he sees money on the floor, he will pick it up and put it to the side for “Uncle Kavie.” (I had a contract to fulfill for a brand and I asked my nephew what color should I choose? My nephew says to me “choose black because it’s your favorite.” I had to smile and give him a hug.) My nephew always asks me if I am hungry. And if we arrive at a location together, he will make sure that we leave together. Believe it or not, those small things give me life. Those small things give me the energy to carry on.

2018 had more lows than highs to me. I am thankful for life, but 2018 was a very tumultuous year. The Gentlemen’s Curb “exposed” ourselves to the world. I would question how could I go on? My living situation could be better, but I am still thankful. My temple, my synagogue was met with a tragic and unfortunate fire that left us “homeless.” (My grandfather transitioned and one of our beloved leaders transitioned). I was devastated! You can familiarize yourself with that post by clicking here. I will admit that I was in a dark space in my life. I saw the bottom of many bottles. (Vodka, Taylor Port, Hennessey, you name it!) My life was spinning out of control and I would pray to God but, it felt as if he wasn’t listening. But, God was watching the ENTIRE time and guiding my steps so that I am here today.

It was a Tuesday evening and I decided that I had enough of life. I didn’t see things getting any better. I saw no progression in my personal life. I felt as if my hope was gone. I saw no purpose to live. There were little things in my life that weren’t connecting the way things should. I felt as if things were unbearable. (As I am writing this, I recognize that things can be worse.But, your demons are the strongest when you are at your weakest.) I am not married. I have no children. I rationalized that my footsteps could be wiped cleanly from the earth’s surface. My family would be angry, hurt and upset. But, they are a stubborn, strong and resilient bunch. I knew that they would be able to manage with me being gone. I laid in my bed and planned my escape from life.

But, before doing anything all I could think about was my nephew. How would he feel with me gone? How could I hurt him and back out of his life so suddenly? I pictured him crying near my casket and I couldn’t finish. My love for my nephew triumphed over the demon that plauged me at that time. Those thoughts were erased. God had my nephew save my life.

The Gentlemen’s Curb

Little Giant

This little boy doesn’t understand the impact that God allowed him to have on my life. So, I want to highlight my nephew and showing my appreciation. When times get tough, I recite prayers and remember who I push for. I am 6’1 300 plus pounds. So, it’s odd that I would get strength from a five-year-old that weighs about 50 pounds soaking wet. It’s a weird thing when you look up to someone that loves and admires you. My nephew makes sure that I am good and he is on a path to become noble and honest. And I know for sure I am working towards nobility and being forthright because of him. I felt that it was important to start my 2019 with no secrets. Hopefully, this energy will maintain and carry you into 2019. I am counting my blessings. I hope that I have a lot to do with that. It makes me want to curb all of my steps to make sure that I am setting a good example and to be strong for my nephew.

Mentally, I am in a good space now and I am thankful. My mindset has altered and I am looking at life through a different lens. I am looking at life through the lens of love. Love can help you overcome and is difficult to destroy. Love Can Give You Life. Thanks for reading this super long post. Thanks for showing love towards The Gentlemen’s Curb all throughout this year. Thank you for allowing me to be vulnerable and transparent with you all. Until next time, it’s The Gentlemen’s Curb a lifestyle blog where fashion meets fitness in a BIG way.

Healthy Eating for Those Who Aren’t Gifted in The Kitchen

In Lifestyle On The 'Curb

gentlemenscurb, lifestyle, xlinfluencer

Not everyone can cook. But that’s okay. For some reason, so many of us are convinced that you have to be some sort of Nigella Lawson or Gordon Ramsay in the kitchen to be able to maintain a healthy and balanced diet. Fortunately, this isn’t necessarily true. While you might not be able to whip up a five-course meal with ingredients nobody really knows how to pronounce correctly, you can easily ensure that you get all of your necessary vitamins, minerals, and other forms of essential nutrition into your diet. Here are a few simple ways to go about it.

 

Kick Meat to the Curb

 

First things first, it’s a good idea to ditch meat from your diet. Why? Well, believe it or not, various studies have proven that meat (red meat in particular) can have a whole host of detrimental effects on our overall health and wellbeing. What’s more? While you may think that meat is healthy, the majority of us tend to opt for cuts that are fatty or cheaper options such as burgers, nuggets, and meat slices that are often made from reformed meats and the cold cuts that hold little nutritional value. Besides the negative health complications caused by meat consumption, taking on a vegetarian or vegan diet also makes you think a lot more about what you’re putting into your body. Fast food chains and take aways tend to have little to satisfy a veggie’s needs, so you’re more likely to keep them at bay. You will also have to read up a little more on what your body requires to gain sufficient levels of protein. This will expand your knowledge regarding nutrition and healthy living, which you can then implement into every meal you cook up.

 

Try a Different Type of Food Delivery

 

Takeaways are a complete health hazard. Sure, one here and there will be fine. But if you find yourself regularly chowing down on these meal options, you’re likely to experience issues with obesity, bad skin, and nutritional deficiency. So, what’s a person to do if they have little time on their hands for cooking themselves? Well, there’s a healthy alternative: Meal Delivery. Specialist companies use gourmet chefs to cook up high quality, nutritious, and delicious meals that can be brought right to your doorstep. So, no more excuses!

Learn How to Make Soups and Stews

gentlemenscurb, xlinfluencer,

If you’re a novice in the kitchen, try learning how to make a few basic soups and stews. These are some of the simplest culinary ventures out there. They can also be made in bulk and frozen to be eaten later in smaller portions. But the best part? Soups and stews can be absolutely packed with a whole variety of vegetables, making them one of the most filling, hearty, and healthy options that you can get. So, start looking up a few simple recipes. Tomato, butternut squash, and carrot soups have very few ingredients and steps in the cooking process but are greatly rewarding once they’re done.

 

So, no matter how incompetent you may think you are when it comes to cooking, you can still ensure that you get everything you need in your diet.
