After two and a half years of traveling, Freebird has become a symbol for my heart, the way it was meant to be: Free like a bird. I say “Following Freebird” to remind myself to listen and stay true to it so that I am always living my highest truth. Though my travel adventures are on hiatus right now, the lessons I've learned along the way will stay with me forever.
The Following Freebird blog has been a summarized chronicle of my new life after a near death experience followed by a year of deep depression after a stroke I had back in January 2014. This was the major catalyst in my choice to leave my “safe” corporate finance job in New York City. Since making this decision, my entire perspective on almost everything in life has changed.
The Following Freebird blog has proven to be the best outlet I have when it comes to self-medication. Upon realizing this, I knew that I have a duty to share it with others looking to do the same.
What was once a blog focused solely on my travels, experiences and major life revelations will now include contributions from some of the most inspirational people I have had the pleasure of spending time and space with along my journey. Each one of these people have added to the makeup of what this blog has become.
