A Life Worth Living

The past week has been an emotional roller coaster. After the video that Greg Lassik and Nick Cucci published, my life has been going a mile-a-minute. I just wish I could run that fast. haha j/k My e-mail has irrupted and people are reaching out in numbers that I didn’t know were possible. After sharing the video on Facebook, it was shared hundreds of times and because of the video being spread I have been able to reach more people. My phone has been ringing more than usual and I have been sleeping less, but that is not a bad thing. I could not be more happy or inspired by the people in my life and those strangers out there that believe in what I am doing.

Yesterday was a very emotional day for me. I received a phone call early in the a.m. by a young man who was extremely depressed. I will not go into too much detail as it is not my story to tell. Long story short, he had been using for over 5 years and had enough with this life. He let me know that he had nothing to live for, that his life was a joke. Now when I heard him saying these things it hit too close to home. He sounded EXACTLY like me a little over 2 years ago. I stepped my game up and started to motivate to the best of my ability. By the end of our hour and a half convo he had agreed to go into treatment. Immediately following our phone call, I was on the phone with both of his parents who were by his side at this point. He was safe and in his parents hands. He will be starting his treatment at 9am today.

To most people who see this site and watch my videos, they get inspired and let me know it. What you don’t get to see is the little miracles happening each day. I sit here humbled by all of your generosity and love towards me. That love keeps this site and my mission going full steam ahead. I am an extremist and that is why I have taken on a fight that will never end. With your support I will never stop. Thank You.
