My name is Thomas, but you are more than welcome to call me The Mind Guy.
My story is long and layered like a giant dish of lasagna. Today, I am a person that can enjoy life. I can laugh at myself and I can laugh with others. Every morning I’m excited and grateful to start a new day. It wasn’t always this way. As a child I was shy and reserved, afraid of the world, and filled with nervousness and anxiety. My early adult years were a constant struggle and I lost nearly a decade drinking my life away. My 20’s contain few positive memories and frankly it was all just a blur from all the drinking I was doing. I sucked at life and I would remind myself constantly of this. This went on until the age of 28, when I hit rock bottom, and I had to make some difficult but necessary choices. I knew I would not survive much longer living life the way I was. So I changed. Slowly of course, per the laws of growth. I vowed I would no longer suck at life – in fact, I set an ambitious goal. I told myself, “I’m going to become an expert at life”. Pursuing this goal has been my life for the past 7 years.
