Wow Where do I start?.. Well for my likes, Motorcycles, Bowling (Yeah, I roll 300's) and Pool are my sports. I am a father of 2 girls, who are completely the reason why I breathe.. My girls have inspired me to be the best in life at all things, not from the moment they were born, but from the moment they were conceived. Being a dad is the quintessential favorite part of my life. I also have a fascination with rescue and law enforcement. I was hired as a full-time fire rescuer the same week I was hired as an on call (not even part-time) radio personality. It’s obvious that I chose radio, and it indeed has been good to me, more so than I am to it. Radio broadcasting has always been my passion and was ultimately birthed into me by my late father who worked in radio for almost 50 years. So I guess you can say I got it honestly. I can truly say that I am blessed beyond measure to have such a great career, which allows me to experience so much the average person will probably never do or see. I am truly grateful to God for this dream now reality lifestyle that I am blessed to have...To Him be The Glory...The Father, Teacher & Mentor

Nothing washes away the sadness of a failed relationship like traveling. You can go around the corner, down the street, or to another city, it doesn't matter. A change of scenery (as well as drinking out of a coconut) will have you feeling brand-spanking-new.
A lot of people tend to be selfless in a relationship - and that's good, but only up to a point. Constantly giving can be a drain on your time and your spirit, so now is the time to turn your attention to yourself. Focus on what you want out of life or a relationship, what makes you happy, and what you can do to be the best you that you can be. Sounds very Oprah-ish, but a bit of self-reflection can save you time, and heartbreak, in the future.
Take up hobbies
Now that you aren't constantly caking with our ex-dude, you need to find things to do to occupy your time so that you don't go (too) buckwild, or have a "Marvin's Room" moment. Dust off that guitar, start volunteering at the local animal shelter, go to karaoke - whatever you do, make sure it's fun!
Switch it up
Whether it's changing your hair, getting a tattoo, or signing up for extreme sports, radical change can feel powerful, especially if you are just coming off of the heels of a nasty breakup. It's liberating to do something just for the hell of it (within reason). Be safe, but also TURN UP.
Take some Time Alone
Taking time to yourself is crucial, and it's something that can be easy to side step in the throes of passionate romancing. Now that you have the time, spend it with the most important person in your life - you! This is a great time to listen to your girl Beyoncé self-empowerment songs and sing into your brush in the mirror (it does wonders for the spirit). However, do yourself a favor and DO NOT LISTEN TO ADELE. DO NOT LISTEN TO DRAKE. If you do you'll be in your feelings to the point of no return.
In relationships it's easy to have tunnel vision and forget that there are many, many more fish in the sea. After you've had enough time to regroup, get out there and meet new people. You don't have to be trying to get kisses down low, but you do need to remember that all types of relationships - platonic and romantic - are good for the soul.
Of course the first three days after a break up will be filled with Haagen-Dazs, tequila, fried chicken and Krispy Kremes, but after that you should really cut the crap. No really. Eating clean will help you feel better as you try to clear your head. You'll probably be snatched to the gawds afterwards too, which is always a good thing.
Retail therapy works for you ladies. This technically falls under the 'be self-centered' axiom, and it is one of the most fun ways to be self-centered. Just make sure all your bills are paid.
Vent, then Let It Go
Everyone doesn't need to know that you are serving Sea Salt with a side of Lawry's about your recent split. The reality is that most people don't care, or just want to be nosy. So make sure you vent to the right person - your homegirl/cousin/therapist. Then let it go. Holding out for your ex-lover to come running back is probably not the move. Besides, it'll keep you from the fine Idris Elba-look alike in your future.
Have your come to Jesus moment now, while you are single, so you'll have your head right as you move on to the next phase of your life. Getting spiritually centered, however you identify religiously, will be a balm to your weary soul. So break out the church hats and get ta prayin.
