TEAM DO GOOD. POSITIVE FORCES IN YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD.

ABOUT ME

20200213_172707.jpg

I'm going to speak in the 3rd person here because I like to haha and it sounds better. Thomas S. Reynolds is the founder and creative force behind Tampa Bless. He is an Irish Catholic, Hudson Valley New York native and Navy veteran that is into many things ranging from art to religion, food, family, philosophy, fashion, sports (mma heavy), working out, travel, crypto, comics, tattoos, trading cards, cigars, nature, dogs (Olde English a fav), and much more. Although not always the case, Mr. Reynolds has a tendency to gravitate towards things outside of the mainstream. He currently resides with his wife Fon and their trusty dog Hemmy Loc in Tampa, Florida. After teaching for 15 yrs and coaching for 16 seasons over 10 yrs, both of which became extremely toxic in the last 5 yrs or so due to a cultural climate which lacked properly placed priorities, gratitude, appreciation, and respect among other things, he realized that creating a brand where helping others and uplifting humanity is celebrated and revered was not only needed but necessary. That said, there is no better place to start than right where you live. Enter Tampa Bless and Team Do Good: Positive Forces In Your Neighborhood.

    Tampa Bless Quote of the Month

    February 2022

    โ€‹

    Consult not your fears but your hopes and your dreams. Think not about your frustrations, but about your unfulfilled potential. Concern yourself not with what you tried and failed in, but with what it is still possible for you to do.

    โ€‹

         -Pope John XXIII

    Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrows; it empties today of its strength.

    The very purpose of Christ's coming into the world was that He might offer up His life as a sacrifice for the sins of men. He came to die. This is the heart of Christmas.

    To be grateful is to recognize the Love of God in everything He has given us – and He has given us everything. Every breath we draw is a gift of His love, every moment of existence is a grace, for it brings with it immense graces from Him. Gratitude therefore takes nothing for granted, is never unresponsive, is constantly awakening to new wonder and to praise of the goodness of God. For the grateful person knows that God is good, not by hearsay but by experience. And that is what makes all the difference.


         -Thomas Merton

    More men discover their souls in darkness than they do in light. This is not to invite darkness; it is only to be reminded that darkness need not go to waste when it is thrust upon us.

    In a higher world it is otherwise, but here below to live is to change, and to be perfect is to have changed often.

    โ€‹

    Faith in the resurrection of Jesus says that there is a future for every human being; the cry for unending life which is a part of the person is indeed answered. God exists: that is the real message of Easter. Anyone who even begins to grasp what this means also knows what it means to be redeemed.

     

         -Pope Benedict XVI

    โ€‹

    For myself, I find I become less cynical rather than more--remembering my own sins and follies; and realize that men's hearts are not often as bad as their acts, and very seldom as bad as their words.

    I think that if God forgives us we must forgive ourselves. Otherwise, it is almost like setting up ourselves as a higher tribunal than Him.

    โ€‹

    Men spoke much in my boyhood about restricted or ruined men of genius: and it was common to say that many a man was a Great Might-Have-Been. To me it’s a more solid and startling fact that any man in the street is a Great Might-Not-Have-Been.

    To be a person of conscience means to be demanding of oneself, to get back up after falling, to be ever converted anew.
