Episode 2: Bad Dreams and My Last Day in Panama

So much of my life I don't regret, even the craziest of happenings. But on occasion, even if it's rare, I step into situations, particularly with people, that I wish I hadn't. The sunk cost of energy, time and what feels like poor human conduct leaves a deep wound and scar.

Is there someone in your life that you wish you never met? Or was there a time when you felt that way, but maybe your sentiments changed? I'd love to here more about your personal experience. For me, people have been a favorite hiding spot of mine on the journey of purpose and art.

I love helping people and devoting myself almost unconditionally. But when the relationship is toxic and draining, it ends up taking from you in ways that are hard to replenish.

Steven Pressfield in his infamous books, The War of Art and in the follow up Turning Pro, he talks about how the professional artist doesn't have time for drama. It's wasted energy and time. It's resistance. And it's true. If I were in that same situation I was 1 year ago, I wouldn't have the energy, confidence or even inspiration to do what I'm doing now.

Introduce yourself in the comments below.  It's a family around here; I'd love to meet you.  And if you know someone this would inspire, please share it with them!
