I have always admired Anthony Bourdain for his honest, real no B.S. reporting. Many people didn’t like this style, but I respected it a lot. I have followed along with him in his cooking and journalistic success for a very long time.
I was brought to tears this morning when I heard he had taken his life in Paris. This is a tough subject for me to write on as I have been to that space or place in life where I struggled with hopelessness, failure, stuck and had myself convinced that those around me would be better off without me in the world. I would no longer be a burden or weight on anyone’s shoulders. LUCKILY I was able to get some help for my sad thoughts.
It is hard for me to write this, as I try to forget that time in my life, but I have decided to be quiet NO MORE! Life is fragile and truly sucks at times. But I am living, walking, breathing and loving person that can say that sucky time truly will pass. I am here to say, there are many people in my life past, present and future that love me so much I can’t imagine the place I was in six years ago.
Although I didn’t know him personally, he brought lots of smiles to me, and when he did his piece on the Iran-Parts Unknown, I wrote about it here.
YOU ARE LOVED! ALL OF YOU!
