The world doesn't owe you a damn thing.

On August 1, 1996, I nearly died by my own hand. This brush with death and the events that followed radically changed the trajectory of my life. The depression that had controlled me for a decade subsided as I learned to become accountable for my reactions to life’s struggles and to stop living my life for others. The path that I chose to follow was quite unconventional (and makes for great storytelling!), and I experienced a profound spiritual shift in the process.
This site is my personal blog where I share my journey, my successes masked as failures, and my failures masked as successes. It’s also a bit of an online journal.
I may not be your “normal” shining beacon of hope. But, my life is infinitely better than it once was, and I believe that it’s my responsibility to share the wisdom that I’ve gleaned through it all with those who are open to receive it. If this is you, welcome! I hope that you find something that resonates.
