For a few years I suffered from depression. I was constantly exposed to the idea mainstream media can create, that in order to be happy I have to have the life of the rich and famous. Every time I would open my phone or watch tv, the message was there being shoved in my face. As a direct result of this, everyday I was left feeling emptier and emptier. And that since I didn't have the things that I was told I needed to be happy; I was not able to feel happy or enjoy life.
I went on a 5 year long search to find out how to truly have joy and figure out how to gain meaning and purpose in my life.
Not to downplay or discredit the life of the rich and famous, but I now believe that an Iconic person is the person who may work at the department store down the street, or the single mom who works 2 jobs just to put food on the table, or the kid who gets made fun of at school for being "different".
I believe it takes a lot more courage to face life when things like money may be tight or the odds may seem against us. My passion is to shine a spot light on these people; people like me.
