The wisest men were the ones whom at one point in their lives uttered the words, “The greatest knowledge I hold is accepting that I know nothing”. Not to crown myself wise, but I find myself whispering these same words to myself daily. We are all a sum of what we experience throughout our lives. The failures, victories, pains, and truths all add up to a collected construct of who we are today. I am a sum of some not-so-good experiences thrown in with some really great ones. I have every thing from medals to scars. This blog isn’t a soapbox for me to stand on and try to preach advice to anyone about his or her life. Instead, this is my way of telling you that I get it. I have had my share of dysfunctional families, traumatic issues, heartbreak, poor choices, and hurts. So more than anything what I want you, as a reader of this blog, to understand is that I get it, I’ve been there, and in many ways I’m still there. If you’re anything like me knowing that you’re not alone is a valuable solace in itself. I’d love for you to take this journey with me, not as captain to passenger, but as fellow passenger to fellow passenger.
