While you can text, tweet, or Facebook message your friends until your thumbs fall off, nothing can ever replace spending time together in person.
Leave the cell phone at home and commit to spending some quality time with your friends. You will be surprised by all the little things you miss on social media - the laughing until you’re crying, the eye-rolls, the pitch-perfect sarcasm and everything else that makes your friends unique.
Have a great Sunday. Get out and spend time with friends and loved ones!

Wow! What a great surprise it was coming to a show in Hollywood Florida, The Crüe is in town!!!
Not only am I excited to see a great show, but I’m very excited to see a huge part of my touring family and mentor of mine through the years, Matt Mills! Matt has been pushing my buttons since I was 19, and as much shit as he gave me, he always pushed me to be a better professional and person.
I truly love what I do for a living. A big part of it is the work and travel, but an even bigger part is all the people I meet out of it that share the same passions of being on the road. It’s not easy to do, but it’s people like Matt and the many others in the touring community who make it possible.
Much love everyone from Florida! Keep dreaming, and continue to push for your dreams.

First off, this is just one opinion for one situation that may occur. I’m not saying this is the perfect solution, but just some words for thought…
Know this: work is hard. To get to the next step is hard work. You’ll have issue, you’ll have your doubts, you’ll have great bosses and horrible ones. That’s just life. You have to do the time to get the prize.
In my years of dealing with workplace issues I’ve had a number of people complain about their boss and job, but rarely has it come to the point where a worker is completely distraught and feeling trapped. If that’s where you are my initial advice is to change jobs.
I understand if your present financial circumstances make it impossible to leave your current position, but you can certainly start the planning process. If your job is ruining your life it’s not worth hanging onto.
Making less money may be a hardship at the beginning of such a change, but eventually you’ll replace the lost earnings and be happier.
I also suggest finding a mentor. Somebody is out there with the capacity and willingness to help you. Find them.
A mentor can be an effective sounding board for not just technical issues, but surviving the workplace. Many successful people have used them and still do.
Again, this is just partial words and opinion to a problem. I never suggest following opinions of others, I always push people to trust their guts and feel out what THEY want, and what THEY feel is best for themselves. We are all different and we all have different situations to tackle. Regardless, if you keep pushing forward and fight through the battles you’ll receive - you’ll survive.
None of us are any more special than anyone else. Sure, we have a different job, a different religion, a different skin color or different view of the world, but everyone wants to feel that they matter and that they are valued.
Everyone we meet is important and when they are treated that way there is only positivity to come from it. Not only is it the right thing to do, but it feels great to treat others as they are important—because they are!
