Guest blog post, by Sonny Ritacca:
One for the road...
We took the month of April OFF, from writing OneMoreStepRevolution blog posts.
I talked to Sonny the other day, and he said he hadn't seen a post in a few weeks. I told him I was taking a break after feeling a bit discouraged, down, and even disappointed in a few outcomes as of late. As usual, Sonny had some encouraging words, picked me up, and even went OneMoreStep in sharing some of his encouraging and passionate words with OneMoreStep Nation.
Thanks, for being there, Sonny...thanks for bringing us back.
Have a great day.
A few weeks after we first met, both Sonny and I experienced the 'not so magical' side of a breakup. Two weeks later we found ourselves bonding at a Jimmy Buffett concert together in Manassas, VA on September 9th, 2001...cheering each other right up. (Needless to say, we grew even closer just days later after the events of 9-11-01.)
He grew up in Chicago loving baseball, and I grew up in Kentucky loving basketball. He always appreciated the rich tradition and heritage of the Kentucky Wildcats, and I grew up with a fascination with Wrigley Field and watching the storied Chicago Cubs on WGN.
We clicked instantly over sports, Disney, and Jimmy...to this day we go to games, Disneyland, Walt Disney World, and Jimmy Buffett concerts...nothing like being there...
We both love Summertime, palm trees, oceans, islands, live music, Disney, and William James Buffett...12 years and upwards of 20 Jimmy concerts later...we seem to always remind each other of the importance of 'being there' for one another; which is how this whole thing started.
The more things change, the more they stay the same...
