My Most Inspiring Men

This month, I'll make it short and sweet. (Kind of like me...hehehe) I'm re-posting the real life men who inspire me, and giving everyone a teaser of what's to come in the next couple of months. I'm so privileged to have met these guys, and share their life philosophies with the world.

Theo Theodoridis - "Just remember while we keep our hearts open humanity, kindness, tenderness, compassion, and unselfishness thrive. They make us civilized, they exceed over any law or social rule, and make our world a better place. Express these to everyone."

Stephen Black - “To truly be happy and living as we should, I believe we need to hold onto what our soul tells us to hold onto. It is the food or fuel, if you will, for our happiness.”

Jei Douglas - "In life, relationships, journeys, and careers, sometimes we need to take a chance. The outcome may not be as we expect, but it will surely be memorable."

Nick King is the February sweetheart. "I think of other people first because I think its the right thing to do. The world doesn't revolve around just me. Life is what you make of it. If you strive to do your best you can accomplish anything you put your mind to."

Matt Gulakow - a cutie I'm privileged to call family. I've known this guy since he was 8 or so... He'll be playing College ball for a university in Montreal. You'll hear his story in March. He believes that if you don't take a chance on something, you'll never know.

I've met Mr. April - Charlie Junior Settee - he's a University of Winnipeg graduate and Powwow dancer. Have yet to interview him but if he's anything like these guys...well, women in the world are in good hands when there are real life heroes around. Nobody says they're perfect, but then aren't the heroes we write about flawed, too? That's what makes a good person - someone who doesn't pretend to be perfect but strives for it. So far, all of these guys, with the exception of Theo, have agreed to be in my calendar for charity. Aren't they awesome? :) You can visit them all on my blog at


  1. Yay! Great post. And that calendar is sounding hotter and hotter;) LOVE the quotes!

  2. I LOVE this post! You did a great job and like Jenn, I really like the quotes! Can't wait to see what else you show us when these guys get their own months. :)

    Keep up the good work!

  3. Got to love the men who inspire through words, deeds, and *heh* purtiness.

    Great post!


  4. I like it when an inner package matches the outer one. Gives me hope it does... I really like interviewing and writing these articles. Maybe I'll be the next Barbara Walters only younger and (dare I say) hotter!? Lmao! Kidding ladies... :)

  5. I love your Mr. Month series, and this was a great little refresher of the ones we have seen and a wonderful teaser for those to come!

  6. Wonderful post, Kellie! I love all the guys' comments. They definitely have those sexy alpha looks with hearts of gold. Keep up the great work, girlfriend. :)

  7. Thanks Kasey and JD! I sent them all the link to this so maybe they will check in. Not that any of them need any ego-boosting... LOL

  8. What a great idea, Kellie, featuring real live heroes--as you say, no one is perfect. As others have said, I love the quotes from the guys. This will be one terrific calendar, gal.

    Good, inspiring, post.

  9. I love your blog and the work that you do. Avid follower and drooler for life!

  10. Yeah, I like their outlooks on life, Barb. I still get to talk to them occasionally and know of some stuff they've been through. It's great to see their positivity in light of it.
    Thanks for checking in with us Angela! We Angels do love our fans :)

  11. God it's good to know there are real, live men out there we can think of as heros. As usual, an outstanding post, half-pint, and I'm soooo looking forward to that calendar.
    Love you, girlie!

  12. Love you too, Lori and thanks! And hey - some of you are married to real live heroes so don't forget about that. If they want to be featured on my blog let me know! :)
