7 years ago I'd arrived to Boston for school, much earlier than - as it turned out - I actually needed to be there. I had purchased a one-way ticket, packed a single backpack and had 26 dollars to my name. Armed only with my own concern and the newfound kindness of others, I managed to scrape by on these things alone, making sure I wasn't on the streets or without food.
Fast-forward and I'm starting a menswear store, then taking a trip to a remote country, then several more countries, then a train trip across America, then Australia. What I set out to do all these years ago has changed drastically and in no set plan of intention.
I take it on the chin as often as I can, one step at a time like anyone else, and give it all I can with the same hunger I had when I was buying a jar of pickles from the dollar store just to get by.
You have no clue what life has for you, but if you're willing to see what you're full of, ten times out of ten I'd make a safe bet that it's a good life.
Thank you to everyone who has made my journey just that, everyday i am more humbled, more in awe and more thrilled for the things to come.
