Marriage by 25. Network TV by 30. That was always the plan.
It sounded pretty great when I was 15. Of course, God and the universe had a hell of a different idea in store.
Hard lessons. Heartbreak. And a nice little detour to rock bottom with a slow rise to redemption.
25 came and went. I kicked off 30 with marriage vows and a huge promotion at work. I had everything I wanted.
A few short years later I was happy at home but exhausted– and confused– about my career. I asked myself, am I truly where I’m supposed to be right now?
That moment of reflection forced me to take a hard look at what I wanted. I had to get honest with myself and honest with God.
