Real Talk: Happily Ever After Doesn't Exist!

I used to buy into the idea of "Happily Ever After." I once thought that there were certain boxes we were supposed to check in life, that would bring us to a certain point of white-picket-fence fulfillment, and then we'd cruise from there.


Not only does that sound insufferably boring, but it's just not true.


So, here's what happened: I found myself redefining who I am -- or perhaps, defining myself for the first time -- in my early 30s. From there, I slowly started to wake up to the fact that there is no single blueprint that we all must follow to obtain happiness, success, or fulfillment.


The definition of each of those words -- happiness, success, and fulfillment -- is up to the individual to define.


That brings me to my latest edition of Real Talk. Life is a journey which requires constant work -- on ourselves, and on our visions. Hopefully, my story helps you.


Blaze your own trail, people. In the end, you'll be happy you did.
