When Kevin and I started our channel back in January of 2018 I had no idea that just sharing our experiences living and healing from various chronic illnesses would touch so many people's hearts. We also wanted to ensure that people would find comfort and solace in knowing that they were not alone. What first started out as a simple creative outlet for myself to share all of the things that we have both learned over the years, soon turned into a loving community and for the first time in my life I felt like something I was doing could potentially make a difference in this world.
The fact that this channel blew up and branched out as quickly as it did wasn't something I planned for but it was definitely something I have been working toward my entire life and didn't even know it.
I've worked in the corporate world, had the fancy office job, gadgets, long lunch meetings, company cars, comfortable hours, a reliable weekly paycheck, and even the fancy condo in the city. Many would say I was pretty darn successful and accomplished and all before my 26th birthday. Then the worst thing that could have happened or at least what I thought at the time was the worst thing, actually did happen and I got really sick. If that wasn't bad enough, Kevin fell ill shortly after that and the lives we had worked so hard for came crashing down all around us. For the sake of not sounding repetitive the rest of our story can be found on our YouTube channel.
However, even though I had all that STUFF, when I look back on it now I still wasn't happy. I didn't love my life, I didn't like my job(s), I hated getting up early where I had to rush out immediately and get into a car where I was stuck in ridiculous rush hour traffic. I did all of this only to arrive at an office filled with dismal lighting, green walls, and the constant politics and drama of EVERY office environment!
