How I went from lost, confused and depressed to finding my way, and helping thousands of others do the same.
My first bout with depression happened my senior year of high school. And while I never succumbed to medication, I came close a couple of times. That heavy, weighted feeling stuck with me like glue on my shoe for another 10 years.
On automatic pilot I followed the road map laid out for me—I got the college degree, the job, the house, the husband…
I was functional, but I wasn’t happy.
Twenty years ago that was me.
Honestly, I had no idea who I was or what I wanted. But the one thing I was sure of was that there had to be something more, and every day I spent feeling unsure, stuck and confused, my life was passing me by.
And then one day I had enough.
There was this defining moment when I just knew that allowing things to continue that way was no longer an option.
Something had to change.
After years of trying to manage my misery, I realized I was doing nothing more than rearranging the deck chairs on the titanic of my life.
I became determined—OBSESSED with figuring out what it took to be truly happy and create a life I loved.
What ensued was a 10-year spiritual journey that took me deep into the world of psychology, emotional intelligence training, communication and relationship skills, yoga and meditation, massage and bodywork, and even hypnotherapy.
I learned that our emotions always have a message for us—once we learn how to listen.
I learned that our relationships with others, and with life itself, are only as deep, rich, and full as the one with have with ourselves.
And I learned that until we know who we are and why we’re here, we’ll always feel like there’s something missing, even if we can’t put our finger on what it is.
I did find myself, and realized that until we, each of us, do that for ourselves...
We will always feel incomplete.
There’s more to the story, like the time I spent working with the homeless, abused and addiction, which you can read more about here in the introduction to my book.
Because this is when things really started to get interesting.
You don’t want to wake up one day and realize you let your life pass you by…that you kept putting off for later the life you wanted to live and just never got around to it.
If I hadn’t made some changes in my life all those years ago I’d still, 20 years later, be yearning for a life I didn’t know how to create.
I’d likely be depressed with low self-esteem, and would probably be eating, drinking, spending or watching tv more than I wanted to as a way to cope.
While my life continued to pass me by.
Don’t waste another minute waiting to enjoy a life you can start living today.
It’s easier than you think. And you don't have to do it out alone.
