  • My journey began with a decision. It was the worst day of my life. In retrospect, it was the best day...just didn't feel that way at the time.

    May all of the forces for good in the universe be with you this day. Most importantly, may you know that you are not alone. There's a life beyond this moment that exceeds all expectations. It's out there just waiting for you.

    Godspeed, my friend.
