Things are changing at such a rapid speed. Life does have its challenges. I honestly feel my life is traveling at 3x speed, trying hard to keep up. The people who know me the most know I doubt myself and my abilities. I’m working on being more confident and saying “this is who I am & I’m proud of it!”. I’m trying to push myself further and do the things that make me uncomfortable, because that’s how we make the most out of our one life
To everyone who has texted, messaged, asked me to hang out etc... I apologize for being an intermittent ghost. Between work and marathon training ramping up- I’m just exhausted. I’ll get the hang of this new schedule eventually!

I can’t change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination. I can also adjust my stance so my hair blows just right. 😉

@Ch808_shoots and I (@justin_labadie) Shot 3 locations this night and scored good shots from each! As soon as we setup at this spot bolts dropped and I captured this! This is the beautiful John Ringling Bridge from Marina Jacks point of view in Sarasota, Florida! #bigboltmedia

- Honoring Allies -
Facing the Wellington Barracks, is the Guard's Memorial - a cenotaph with five life-size bronze figures sculpted by Gilbert Ledward representing the Foot Guards Regiments - Grenadiers, Coldstream, Scots, Welsh and Irish.
Installed in memory of Guardsmen who died in World War I, it was unveiled in 1926 by the Duke of Connaught, the uncle of King George V. It was designed by H. Chalton Bradshaw. After World War II an inscription was added to remember those who died between 1939 and 1945.
The sculptures were made from guns captured in World War I and modelled on real guardsmen. The Irish Guardsman got impatient while he was being modeled and left before the artist had finished, so his legs belong to another soldier. The Memorial was damaged by German bombs during World War II and during the repairs a small hole was deliberately left in one of the sculptures.
