My life changed when I was able to afford three meals a day again, for sure. But, my life really changed when I stopped living and moving (physically and emotionally) from a place of worry, fear, and anxiety and started living a more authentic, purpose-driven wholehearted life. By taking every stride from a place of self-awareness, -compassion, and self-love I have been able to conquer my own impossible mission: Rebuilding myself and the world around me to be a brighter and more beautiful thing.
This process is not done. I still rumble with (sometimes debilitating) General Anxiety Disorder and Major Depression. I still wrestle with the physical, sexual, and emotional traumas of my past and my world is still far from ordinary, let alone visionary. But, I have found peace with and in all of that perfect imperfection and have since decided to dedicate my life to giving myself (and others) the space and resources necessary to heal, one step at a time.
And, for the first time in my thirty one years, I not only feel a hankering hunger for healing but finally feel prepared and excited and ready to get about the business of it. This blog and extending social footprint, The Curative Man, is just as much a documentary journal of my personal experiences and pursuits as it is for friends (you!) to find the motivation, inspiration, and courage to forge your own journey and pursue your own paths.
