Hitting the Trifecta is about politics, life, current events, psychology, self-improvement, religion, and much more.
The name comes from an ongoing goal of mine. I have been forever trying to achieve success (by my own standards) in three areas of life: love, health, and money. I’ve never been able to simultaneously (1) be in a phenomenal, happy, healthy romantic relationship with someone, (2) be in great physical shape, and (3) have my finances completely and happily in the black. I’ve achieved two out of three plenty of times, just never all three. This blog isn’t specifically about any of those things, but this overarching frame of mind is a good bit of insight into who’s writing what you’re reading: an imperfect person who is trying to grow.
Hitting the Trifecta is written by me, Rickey Dobbs. A little about me: I was born at a young age in a hospital. Ever since then, I’ve been analyzing the world around me, splitting hairs, recognizing patterns, and ultimately distilling it down into wisdom that tended to reside on my laptop. I decided that others might benefit from some of the random things I’ve discovered, and fought for a long time against the idea that I had something that others might need or want.
Then it occurred to me:
- All creators create both altruistically and self-servingly, and
- I benefit non-stop from others’ creations, and it’s selfish of me to only consume.
And with that, this blog was born.
It seems to be resonating with people. I’ve been featured on Scary Mommy and The Good Men Project, as well as in print on the front of my mom’s refrigerator. How many writers can say THAT? No, I mean specifically my mom’s refrigerator. And that would be only one: ME.
Suck it, ghost of Ernest Hemingway.
This is a work in progress, but I still think it’s pretty damned awesome. I hope you enjoy it, too!
