While looking at him and talking with my wife on the phone, I see a gentleman running by, doing laps around the fields. And here's how it went. ME: Honey, I just saw someone that looks like Ronnie Devoe running by. Queen: Oh really? (She wasn't that excited because we were focused on something else while we were talking.) ***David looks up Ronnie Devoe on his phone to make sure he had a better look at his face.*** ME: Honey, I'm gonna see if it was him. ***David runs in the opposite direction so that he could turn around and look without being obvious.**** ME: OMG!! That's him. Queen: Wow. (Kids in the background overhear our conversation. "Daddy, go get a picture. Daddy go sing him one of the songs you love!") ***David runs to catch up with Ronnie. Ronnie sees David out of the corner of his eye.*** Ronnie (panting): What's up man? ***Ronnie reaches out fist to give David some dap. David reaches back with a HUGE smile.*** David: OMG!! What's up man?!! ***Ronnie smiles and keeps jogging.*** No. I didn't get a pic with him because he was in the zone. But I have to say. I was "star-struck"! Do you know how much me and my brothers loved New Edition? Listen, we played our VHS tape of "If It Isn't Love" until it wouldn't even play anymore. We made up own our lyrics to New Edition songs! We did the New Edition dances. We wanted to be New Edition. That's how much! @bigrondevoe #newedition #believer #beautiful #christian #musicians #musician #performance #ATL #fun #beardlove #beardgang #dopepic #beardlife #citylife #stage #fashion #singersongwriter #singer #music #tatted #tattoo #tattoos #beard #beards #bearded #tattoolife #chesttattoo #music #tattedup #beardedman #tattooedguys

A smile rests firmly on my face as I step into my car because an explosion of joy has just filled my heart. Anyone who has taken the time to truly get to know me on a deeper level knows that I have a heart for the homeless. I try to talk to at least one homeless person most days. It helps me maintain the life perspective I strive for and feels extremely rewarding to have a tangible effect on others. When I started this a few months ago it was a bit uncomfortable. Now it’s just something I do. I started talking to the homeless after I realized that a dramatic paradigm shift needed to take place. People walk by the homeless everyday and feel good about themselves when they give them a dollar. “Yeah” they think, “I’m making a difference. Did my good deed for the day. Heaven here I come!” I’m not saying a dollar for a hot meal doesn’t help. It does and I know these people are grateful for it. But what matters most is the genuine conversation and the willingness to listen to them! #MakeImpactNotImpressions #levelup #homeless #atl #atlanta #love #selflessness #love #transparency #changinglives #mentor #speaker #inspire #empower #motivate #unstoppable #goals #striveforgreatness #greatness #striveforsuccess #education #wisdom #relentless #douglasville #atlanta #millenials #blackceo17 #lifecoach #powercoach #realmen #relationshipgoals #mindset
