Welcome to Tragically Hip Living, a blog about creating balance, living simple and small. Tragically Hip Living will also touch on ideas on "how to," ranging from downsizing to travel and everything in between. I love boxing and write for a few websites including my own, www.ronatringside.com, but I also love the simple life and living small and with less. I travel, live, and have the blessing of meeting some very cool people almost on a daily basis.

It's only been a few years since I have found my balance. Now in my 50s, a ton of mistakes and a couple of divorces later, life is now good. What was once important in my 20s, things like money and material things have been replaced with a stress-free lifestyle and appreciating the blessing that surround us. When one can wake up in the morning, witness an amazing sunrise and end the day with an amazing sunset is a perfect example. I believe in God and keep him close throughout the day by meditation and prayer, but whether a believer or not, there is no judgment here. Everybody is entitled to what they seek, go out and find your bliss.

Let's begin with an inspirational story, one that is special to me because it involve's one of my kids. My son Ron Jr. has always been gifted with vision and making things happen. He is a man of God, and a few years ago he and his wife gave much of their savings to the church, a tough decision when supporting a wife and two children. He trusted his faith knowing he would be blessed down the road. An avid lover of indie movies and shows, Ron had the vision to launch a channel and live a dream. Through Roku, he launched his channel "Stream Now TV" and never looked back because he knew him and his family would be blessed. Check out www.streamnowtv.com for some great content, we will be doing more stories on Stream Now TV from time to time.

 Jan. 11. I am just amazed and proud of my son for what he has achieved in such a short amount of time, he had a dream, and today he lives that dream. Click the link below to check it out.
