2010: I guess I was searching for something – answers, perhaps.
The meaning of life … my true purpose?
I knew I had this incredible urge to help others. I looked around daily and all I saw were people just getting on with life. Making ends meet. Dancing with depression and juggling stress. There had to more to life.
I started at the very beginning. It was like writing a novel in some way, I guess. I just started writing. People joined me along the way. From all walks of life. Everybody had a story to tell – something they felt they could share. A little piece of wisdom that may, in the smallest way, help another.
I created I AM Magazine to inspire people to look deeper into life – turns out, I inspired myself. I inspired myself to open my eyes to the beauty of the every day. I started paying attention to the small details of life.
As I wrote, I learned.
Some 22 issues later, I found myself on a path to my ‘best life’. I changed my life by helping others change theirs.
In communicating to people the message of I AM, I actually found mine.
I hope you discover a little piece of your I AM among the pages of I AM Magazine.
Proud supporter of Human Rights, Equality and Breaking the Poverty Cycle.
