Be Brief to Communicate Clearer

You have a lot of good things to say.

Don't let those good things be lost amidst mediocre filler.   

I often write a full blog post, then before posting, delete multiple paragraphs of distracting and unnecessary information.

Ask yourself "What am I truly trying to communicate?"    

Then ruthlessly edit out anything that would distract from what you are really trying to say.

I Struggle With Depression

This is the saddest photo of me that I could find.  This was part of my 365 project in 2008, after all my friends (one of them being Jess!) left Kona. 

Since I've been posting about others being vulnerable, I guess I'll be vulnerable.  I struggle with depression.

A bottle a friend bought for me while travelling, I never ended up drinking any of it though.

Last week I posted about Jim who although he was covered in blisters and had been throwing up blood refused to go to the hospital.
