We all have our outlets in life, burying your head in a book, drawing, painting, singing, exercise, and sports. Whether you’re an athlete or not you can relate that when you find something that makes you smile when you go all in.
During high school Jon was a Goalie for the New England lacrosse back and a top league blocker as Nose Guard for his football team, not to mention a stint on the wrestling team too.
“Lacrosse was my time to smile and Football was a way of life, those were words from a coach that I wouldn’t understand until TFW.”
We all have memories like that from the “glory days,” a saying or a mantra an adult gave you that made you feel like you could conquer the world. The next step after high school might have been college, trade school, or straight into the work force, but there was always some part of you that was craving something more.
While some people move across the country for college others stay local and while Jon did go to college, it was short lived.
“I spent most of my adult life running from my past“
