That’s Everyone dies it is how one lives that matters shirt. If you’re thinking of quitting… I spent most of my life trying to be anything but who I was. I wore every mask you could imagine. I ran from my problems, I broke my commitments, and blamed everything on everyone else. I looked at the deck of cards I was dealt and cursed the heavens themselves. I failed myself over and over again and I was about one move away from giving up completely. I lived scared. Scared shitless. But then I heard those words that still echo in my soul today – “I refuse to die an un-lived life.” So, I decided to run, still scared shitless, straight into my fears for once.

I ran right into everything I was avoiding. I decided that I wasn’t going to reach the end of my life living in a pool of regret wishing I could have turned back time. This was the hardest decision I ever made. Life at times gave me a beating. But I never stayed down for long. I wandered off my path for years at a time. But I always came back to the compass of my heart. Everyone dies it is how one lives that matters. The journey took me in completely unexpected places that at the time I couldn’t understand but now I can “see.” It’s easy to point fingers or simply avoid the truth.
You can run from the light as much as you wish, but the consequences of that decision are unavoidable. In time, they will catch up with you and you have two choices. Quit…or relentlessly move forward. It’s going to take everything you’ve got. But this is where the magic happens. When you face those dangerous dungeons, demons and dragons…when you walk through the intimidating forest, you learn just how much light is in you. Be patient, it will come. And as my favorite quote of all time says, “Stay open. Who knows? Lightning could strike.”
