Life WILL Kick You Where it Hurts. So What?

I grew up thinking that if life kicks you where it hurts, that means that your life sucks. Life will try to kick you until you tune out, numb out or get out of the game. Life IS hard, but life is also incredible.

“Life gets difficult and people change… or is it that people change and life becomes difficult? Either way, life is hard and change is inevitable”

When we are willing, incredible things can happen. Willing to believe in ourselves, willing to ask for feedback, willing to share our ideas and make a contribution.

I write articles that talk about the kind of changes I am trying to make in my own life. I hope that my writing also helps you. My topics include addiction and mental health recovery, relationships, and personal growth. I work as an Addiction Therapist, an Editor for the Good Men Project and freelance writer, and Adjunct Professor at City University, Edmonton. But what is most important is that I have a family and I am in recovery from depression and anxiety. My mental health experiences are part of my personal University degree, but they do not define me.

I hope to inspire you, to inform you and on occasion to entertain you. But most of all, I want to connect with you. Sign up for my blog if you want to receive the latest and best of my writing. If you like what I have to say, please share my work with your friends.
