Lift Off-My Journal of 2010

Last October I finished a pretty intense year of change. I spent a month afterward writing an e-book for myself that I titled “Lift Off”. I gave it to my therapist to show her my progress. It was this completely open presentation of myself that lead to a stronger me. I’ve only shared this with her and my girlfriend. Today, I’ve taken much time and decided to release a 99%* unedited version here for you to read.  “Why?” Because I trust you as a human being. I trust you inherent ability to have good intentions; regardless of what you might think about yourself.

I reflect on life, love, relationships, my career and everything in between. I hope you enjoy it. It can be downloaded below, just click the astronaut.

Below are the songs that I burned to the disc that accompanied the journal. Each links to a Youtube video of the song.
