Episode 19 - Turning The Page
Its been a little bit longer since my last episode but in this new installment, I go over why. What's been going on in my life? Recently dealing with anxiety, with pain, with frustration. I go into further about how amazing my girlfriend has been for me to lean on and look up to as we handle life differently. In this case, a lot better than me. It's also my last episode from my home in Delaware. In just a few short days, I make my drive to Texas. To start a new chapter in my life with the one I love. If anyone else goes through events like this, or handles things the way I do or rather struggle to... maybe it can help. It was good to turn on the microphone again. Thanks again for listening!

Episode 10 - Current State of Mind
In this episode I come back with a solo episode and talk a little raw and from the heart about where I have been the past few weeks. Instagram always shows us things are great and wonderful, but it isn't always that way. These last few weeks have been tough, but I explain how support has been key in keeping my head above water. I also mention a book recommendation and starting my new goal of reading one book a month for the rest of the year. This episode had no real direction or planning, just shot straight from the hip. I hope it helps someone listening who may be in a similar mindset.
