If I Can Make It, You Can Make It
By age 22 I had dropped out of college. Twice.
By age 24 I was a broke poker player who lived at home.
By age 26 I was making $10/hour as a pipe plug fabricator.
By age 28 I had my own apartment, working as a welder.
By age 30 I bought a condo and decided to go back to college.
By age 32 I graduated with a degree in funeral service.
By age 34 I had arguably the worst moment of my life.
By age 36 I was running on fumes, contemplating everything.
By age 38… to be determined, come this September.
I’ve lived through moments I shouldn’t have. I’ve lost friends. I’ve served time. I’ve saved lives.
Now, as a funeral director, there is nothing else I’d rather be doing. You couldn’t pay me to walk away. I’d just take the money and start my own funeral home. The moments we go through in life either teach us how to become better, faster, stronger; or they break us.
I didn’t break at age 22. I won’t break at age 38. I’ll keep moving forward, for as long as I can. If I can make it, you can make it.
