As I’m sitting here writing this blog post my heart is saddened to hear of the recent suicides. I know that many people commit suicide daily, especially our U.S. Veterans #PTSDAwarenessMonth and not all tend to reach the media as others. But to know that a person can have it all and still not have everything they need is sad.
In order to lead a fascinating life one brimming with art, music, intrigue and romance; you must surround yourself with precisely those things. Kate Spade
The lives of Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain were admirable. They cared more about being with “normal” people than hanging with the top of the top. They made a difference in this world with their fashion and food. Anyone can run a business, but not everyone can run a business and use it to change the lives of others.
We can all prevent suicide if we just take a moment to talk with someone, even strangers. Mental health is real and we can help someone by talking about it, being there for them and making sure we help them get the help they need. Let’s continue to pray for our friends, families and for our military who sacrifice so much.
If you or someone you know needs help please reach out to someone or contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255. They are there 24/7 to help you get the support you need. You matter. You are loved. You are important.
You learn a lot about someone when you share a meal together. Anthony Bourdain
