We created a world of lies in search of likes. I believe social media is an amazing tool but that's where it ends, because it if doesn't it can become the end. I'm sure through my posts this seems like another hunting page in search of "fame", but that couldn't be further from the truth. You see Motive Outdoors is like my alias, forming an identity through these pictures. Then hiding in the lines that follow below is me, Brad Minzey. Kind of like the old say "a picture is worth a thousand words", i've been guilty of hiding in the well thought out and worded posts. When in reality the "motivational" words are screams in my head I'm dying to get out, and I find calm in letting my thoughts flow hiding beneath a pretty picture. The pictures I post are moments of my life I've decided to capture and hold onto and the words are just as much for me as anyone who decides to read. This is the journal of my life I've decided to share. The real uncut no BS truth as hard as it to say, is I have a side to me that I've decided is easier to hide than admit to. I've been carefully hiding who I am and the thoughts in my head inside every one of my posts. I've suffered through anxiety, depressions, and all of that. I continually fight it every single day. Sure some days are better than others but I'm constantly reminded of how cold and dark days can get. Because you see I'm like everyone else. I share the me I want people to see, but I feel like the real lessons and values lie on the other side. The side and part of me I hide. I didn't decide to share for hopes of a pity party. I wanted to slowly let people in and show this side in hopes of showing others that they aren't alone. I know how it feels to not have people understand how you feel or why, and I know how lonely that is with your back against the wall. This is Motive Outdoors and what it means to me. It's my journey to finding happiness in all areas of my life and overcoming the daily struggles. I want my content to be a place where those like me can turn to in times of need. To create a community dedicated to self growth and development through compassion and adventure. You're never alone. Love you all!
