You want a story of transformation, I have one. I plan on typing it up, writing isn’t my forte but my apprentice’s DREAM is to write so I will see about him helping me.
Heres the nut shell:
My whole life I knew I was meant for something greater and everyone around me wanted me to just have a 9-5 take care of my family(if you call that taking care of) and I was listening to thos of influence in my life, Wife, Inlaws, PArents, close friends, wifes “sister” anyway theres a long back history…in the essaence through all of it I was dubbed CAREBEAR I was STILL always loving. A few years ago that changed and I was starting to battle my self and NOT do what everyone wanted, I was treated with hostility, I eventually felt like my family wasnt my own. My wife Beth and I have 2 kids and I was a stay at home dad and going to school for my passion animation,(Beth disaproved) we had an polyamorous relationship and her BF Carl(I do still like him, great guy) any way we were being asked to leave our home, wont go into detail at this time. I was halfass cleaning our house while her and Carl, worked and were playing, I was watching the kids and July 4th I looked around while we were at Alex’s (I had other plans for us for July 4th, but nobody it seemed cared what I wanted..) I felt I was NOT with my family, this emotion built and the next day, I began to be someone I have only been 3 times in my entire life….physically violent. I hurt some one I cared about, told my wife, I had a break down went to a local psychiactric ward called intermountain, I was there less than 48 hours… 2 hrs after getting out, as they found me no threat to my self or others, beth gave me a puppy, and with carl in the back seat of our van, asked for a divorce…my transformation started actually before July 5ths inncodent. MANY things have happenend this last 5 months, however the main things were, lived with friends and we decided to not have me live there anymore because I wasn’t going to do things the way they wanted to make me money, wich started to happen but not fast enough for them, so I became homless. then I got an office connected with amazing helpful families, wich I have helped with the knowledge I have learned and last night I was offered work for a theatre company wich is a true passion of mine, AND I am the sole rep for SMS proccessing in boise ID AND I am building my own company AND I havent talked to my kids since my bday on sept 29th AND havent seen them since July 5th…everything is falling into place and for the first time I am living in the moment and looking twards the future intsead of the opposite… I am STILL not majorly wealthy as in MONEY but I believe I am the wealthiest I have ever been. I am no longer worried about money. I have so much to tell, Nathan my Apprentice, asked me 3 days ago to be his mentor and we are helping each other achieve our dreams. I have asked him to write my biography and yo uand millions will have the story of how Erik Paul Shields, an angry scared, spineless boy became Agythe P. The greatest leader that ever lived.
