Thirty-two years ago, I began collecting what was left of my life, the bits I’d scavenged from ruins of dysfunction and sorrow. At the time, I had one goal: end the cycle of dysfunction in my own life. Sure, I was young, but I was pragmatic enough to know that it would be hard work.
In my foolishness, I thought that doing the hard work would outline the road before me. Instead, I found myself without any path in sight, surrounded by unmapped terrain. I sought to discover unexpected hope along the roads I walked and I was not disappointed.
Every occupation became a way to learn more about myself and the world, and I developed the ability to engage pragmatism, humor, and creativity to synthesize history, psychology, film, myth, literature, music, legend, and theology to not just survive but to thrive.
Are you ready to thrive?
