Reasoning with Madness
"This is a barbaric yawp, and it will be sounded over the roofs of the world."
The two year anniversary of one of the worst days of my life is today.
I remember telling myself that it will be ok, which felt like a lie at the time. But it wasn't.
It was a goal to get back into serious journalism and I have done that. The rock game was getting tired. I needed a change. I stayed patient and it panned out. I used the Force, the Secret, the Law of Attraction to get what I wanted out of life.
Looking back, the wounds have healed and become battle scars. I am stronger and wiser and I am now in a very good place in Portland with my girlfriend by my side again and I've moved up the chain to Executive Producer for a nationally and regionally syndicated radio show that continues to grow and has taken me to Vegas, DC twice, and given me the honor of a fellowship at The Hoover Institution. I went from backstage passes to working with the White House, both sides of Congress, Washington Post, NYTimes, Fox News and some of the most interesting people from so many many walks of life.
I have the honor of calling some of the best journalists and thinkers on earth my friend these days. And I write this, again, to remind anyone in a dark place to never give up.
I went from being unemployed and almost homeless to the top of world. Don't give up on your dreams and stay focused and you will achieve whatever you set your goals on. Stay strong. Hold the line. Breathe.
And know you will achieve the glory you desire.
Who Am I?
I am Ahab.
