If I’m an advocate for anything, it’s to move. As far as you can, as much as you can. Across the ocean, or simply across the river. The extent to which you can, walk in someone else’s shoes, or at least eat their food, it’s a plus for everybody. Open your mind, get up off the couch, move. – ANTHONY BOURDAIN
Have you ever felt so connected with and inspired by someone you don’t know???
I love Anthony Bourdain for his intellectual, curious, rebellious persona. He taught me about food – but most importantly about being less afraid of the unknown. He also taught me in some weird way that it was okay to create my own crazy path. That you could be an independent thinker, a non-conformist and you could still succeed. His loss shows us that we can never truly know what’s going on in someone’s life behind cameras and what media portrays or the depths of a persons darkness, which is why it is so important to be kind and compassionate to our fellow human beings.
I feel so strongly about this – a huge wave of sadness sweeps through me.💔 A healthy body is nothing when the mind is tortured. There are so many options to treat depression and anxiety as well as other mental health issues. The first step is to talk about it and seek guidance. And to not be afraid.
The world can sometimes feel like a horrible place to live in – but my hope is that we will continue to hold onto hope, reach out to one another more(don’t wait to check in on someone- do it now!) and grasp onto any thread of gratitude and sense of purpose to help people get through some of the most painful and difficult times of their life. You might just save a life!
You are valuable and so loved and so deserving of proper guidance and help! God bless!
Blessings and love…
