Pain and discomfort are non-negotiables...they will be there no matter what from time to time. Suffering, however, is optional.

#TBT me at 23 years old. The quote "not all who wander are lost" from Tolkien said it best. In this picture I'm in the middle of a 6 month journey across Europe, trying to find out who I was. Here I'm at a roadside food shack in Greece recently dismounted from my rented motorcycle. I was on an exploration - not to see the sights, but to discover myself.

I think there's a lot of pressure in our culture to know exactly what we want to be in life… As if we are supposed to follow a straight line. If you've ever felt that way and…if you might even still be feeling that way today in a job you don't love, at a school that doesn't support what you want to be or still unsure of what will fill your passions as a career.

I am living proof that there are no straight lines. And that it's ok to take time to figure it out - or even changes courses at any time.

I disappointed so many people along the way… Dropping out of a career path toward pro soccer. Bailing on medical school. Dropping out of a PhD… To become a photographer. People thought I was crazy. Admittedly - sometimes I wondered if I was. I doubted the decision. I was scared. But I was able to make it work.

So today I stand before you as a reminder that there are no straight lines to chasing your dreams. It's true we may all get distracted here and there or need to learn a few lessons about who we are and what it takes to persevere… But that's the most beautiful thing about the world in which we live today.

There are 1 million paths to be or become what you want to be in this life. Trust me you are on the path to your dreams but you just might not realize it right now . It's my hope that in recognizing this simple fact - that you may now give yourself permission to follow your dreams. The only thing you can do wrong is do nothing at all so you might as well get started today. 🙏🏻💪🏼
