My name is Sean, and I’m not your average guy. In fact, according to the CDC, I’m actually below average. That is, of course, unless you factor in things like being married (the vast majority of the time happily) to my girlfriend for the past 23 years, being the father of 5 children ranging from the Coast Guard to elementary school (all with the aforementioned girlfriend), the striking lack of hair on my head, combined with the inordinate amount of it dangling from my chin.
I’m not sure that any of those things make me above average… a bit odd perhaps, but not much more than that. It was that realization, brought on by a well timed nervous breakdown that brings us to where we are right now.
This blog was started as kind of an experiment of sorts. Maybe more accurately, it can be called a series of observations. Most of them will be mine, but please feel free to watch and comment. My family and I have made a lot of changes over the past few years. Some have been big, some have been small. We still got a lot of things that we want to change. Some of them big, some of them small. I’ve been to some places, seen some things and done some things. I’ve got plenty of strong opinions, but am paradoxically willing to allow for yours, no matter how opposing they may turn out to be. This is the story of the life I am choosing to live, and conversely the story of the lives I’ve decided to quit living.
I’m not even really sure where all of this will end up. I’m a guy who reached the point where the pain of not living became greater than the fear of living. A guy who’s walking through the minefield. If you wanna follow, and if I haven’t blown up, please feel free to step where I’ve stepped.
So how about you? Ready to Quit Your Life?
