The Story Behind the Blog

Before making a conscious effort to bring a change to their lives, often people wait until they've hit rock bottom. This is understandable. It's easy to be content with an average life- it's comfortable, it's easy, and there's little urgency to change.

I have not hit rock bottom. My life is good, but I'm not satisfied with settling  for average.I want to have a great life. I want a life full of adventure and excitement. To get a life of greatness, you need to fight for it and continue to contend for it. It doesn't happen by accident.

A great life is not a life of power, fame or money. My definition of a great life is a life of happiness and passion, where I'm challenged, constantly changing and growing. 

This blog will document my fight to overcome mental health issues and practical barriers, to achieve a great life, and hopefully act as a how-to, and how-not-to, for my readers. I will write about the steps I put into place, the highs and the lows of my journey and, most importantly, the stuff I learn along the way. My intentions for writing this blog are partly self-serving but the main motivation is for people to learn from my experiences and engage with the process.
