Self-Awareness does not come by accidentally. It's a practice. It takes conscious effort and reflection. You have to implement strategies ("checks & balances").
We must use our power to EMpower. We must have a R.O.O.F.—Realization Of Our Fortitude. We have to choose daily to get to our R.O.O.F. no matter what the day throws at us, and unzip our potential—exposing it to the A.I.R.—Awareness, Intent, Resilience.
Fortitude = courage in pain or adversity. "Life isn't always sunshine and rainbows. It'll beat you down if you let it, and nothing hits harder than life." — Rocky
Synonym for fortitude? Resilience.

One year ago today, I came out as #bisexual , and without a doubt it came with vast amounts of change in my life. Since coming out, I have felt more like my true self than I could ever think possible. I have been blessed to surround myself with individuals who shower me in support and unconditional love (looking at you Mum and dad, I know it was tough in the beginning, but we’re chugging along). Of course, there are always the negatives; I have been gossiped about, and ignored by family members, and felt the prejudice which exists within the gay community itself. Therefore, my advice to those who may still be in the closet, is this: Do not be afraid of the reactions of those around you. If people walk out of your life because of your sexual orientation, then they were never meant to be there in the first place. Those who stay with you now, are those of pure hearts, and they are the ones you deserve. The prejudice you may endure, does not hold a candle to the happiness and compassion that is out there waiting for you. Simply put, just be yourself. #loveislove#bisexual#bivisibilityweek#queer#comingout #🏳️🌈

I'm so excited to be back in Australia for a series of shows. Many years ago, I chose Australia for my wedding to a wonderful woman for whom I have so much love and admiration. I wanted more than anything to be a good husband, but I denied who I really was, which caused my wife sadness, and caused me huge guilt and regret. To be worthy of someone's love, you have to be brave enough and clear eyed enough to be honest with yourself and your partner. Almost 24 years ago, I met the person with whom I could be fully myself. When we married in 2014, it felt like that fact was accepted by the world. For David and I, being able to openly love and commit to one another, and for that to be recognised and celebrated is what makes life truly worth living. That acceptance and support makes us want to be as kind, responsible and productive members of society, as well as the best parents, that we can be. I love Australia. I love its spirit, it's lack of pretence, it's passion. I hope it can embrace the honesty and courage that seeks gay marriage as an expression not of desire but of love. #loveislove#marriageequality
