Who is Frank?

IMG_6407We all know someone called Frank. I originally wrote that I, Frank, am different.  The truth is I’m not. I’m just like you.  Don’t go rolling your eyes … What I mean is that like you, I am looking for my place in this world.  I am searching for the meaning in what I do every day.  Yes, I have experienced things that most have not.  Losing an only child, destitute with the loss of my company, broken relationships and more.  What I’ve realized through all my experiences is that we are resilient beings.  We can be beaten down in many ways and yet from the ground or ashes we pick ourselves up and press forward.

We fight for what we believe.  We hold strong to our values.  And eventually, we figure out a few things along the way that make our life easier and more satisfying. We start to understand whats important and brings meaning to life.

We all experience things that make us who we are and it’s through the sharing of these experiences that we can teach each other and help one another grow.

Life always has a way of working out and I hope that through my words in this journey, through my fumbling in this life, in my miss-takes and re-takes and writing about all this, that I can somehow inspire you to greater things. More than anything, more than believing, KNOW that you are now and always will be okay.

Share my blog with your friends and family. Leave comments. Say hello. I will do my best to write more and tell it like it is … for me.

  1. What a heart felt blog – the writings stir my soul. Thank you for sharing the memory of your beautiful daughter with the world, and reminding us all to truly live our live each day — being passionate about the things that matter most to us in life. I also enjoyed the peek into your Italian ancestory – your parents and their friends laying cards made me smile as I reflected on my own family (some still with us, some having passed on some time ago but always in our hearts) sitting around the table playing cards.

    You have a gift for inspiring others and sharing your heart & soul through your writing. Thank you.

    My best to you and your wife — enjoy life’s future journey!

  2. Hey Frank,

    I was reading your Blog about Laura. I to think alot about her. I could just imagine what she would be like today.

    A couple of months ago I saw her best friend Letizia! And the first thing that was on my mind was Laura. We talked and talked about her. It was good to see her, she is now married if you didnt know that.

    Laura will never be forgotten…she is a special girl, and I do believe that one day we will see her again.
