I had a dream career path, eating and drinking my way through the world in two industries: first travel, then wine and spirits. But that day came when it all slipped away, and it felt as if a dark cloud hung over me and the world stood still. In that split second, everything changed: I had no idea what was next, but I knew nothing would ever be the same.
After months of tears, bon-bons, and bottles (80 proof), I decided it was time to do some soul-searching, and I dove into deep reflection and intense contemplation about what direction I wanted my life to take. The questions I was asking myself had some uncomfortable answers, but in reckoning with these questions, I was able to see the clouds parting, making way for a newfound clarity.
