Ep. 15 Shownotes
Every so often, I get a sudden urge to travel and get away to reconnect with the unknown. In this weeks episode art, I used a photo I took on my last trip to Venice, CA, which I have dubbed my home away from home. Venice has such an amazing and authentic arts community that fed my soul as I walked around town and interacted with locals.
I remember walking along the edge of the water trying to capture content and a time lapse of the waves and surfers and came upon this surfer just taking it all in. Even though I don't have an ocean to wake up to every morning, I can still sit back and take it all in. Yes, financial hardships can drive anyone mad and push you to make unhealthy decisions, but that's a path I've taken in the past. This time around, I want to sit through the uncomfortable emotions and feelings this process is taking me through instead of finding ways to escape it.
A huge thank you to my friends and family who recognized my situation and stepped up to make sure I didn't fail. A special thank you to Tony, who sat me down, and reminded me that we all have bad days, bad months, or even a bad year but with the right support, you can always push through to the light at the end of the tunnel.
A huge thank you to Steve and Patrick, helping me keep this project alive and kicking, and for just being present through it all. Every memory has a journey behind it. It's up to you to decide if you want to make the journey a memorable one.
There are options for those that may not have any support from friends and family. I’ve listed a few links below for veteran resources. The first step is just asking for help. The worst anyone can say is, no.
