I just want to let you know that you have helped me make the decision to follow what makes me happy.
I was on the Periscope that you just finished up . I said it was my first one and that I am from CT. I just want to thank you for all the free material you put online. You don’t have to put all the free training up but you do and that’s awesome and kind and speaks loudly as to who you are as a person. I just discovered your youtube channel and have been on a Solid K9 bender, haha! I heard of you from my boss, who follows you. I have been watching a lot of training videos because I am getting a puppy in a few weeks and she reminded me about you.
Also, I noticed you said on one of your videos that you have been sober for 20 years. I have been sober for a bit over 2 years and it rocks.
I am 24 years old, I am finishing up my degree in Public Health, I work at a corporate wellness company once a week and as a manager of a dog daycare for the rest. Recently, I have been presented with two opportunities and struggling with which to choose. I have the opportunity to continue working at a job related to my major that I am miserable at. I can’t stand being in an office all day, staring at a screen trying to put together slides about why people need to be eating healthy and exercising.
The second opportunity is getting even more responsibility at the job I love, that is completely unrelated to my degree, working with my hands and dogs and people. It sounds simple on paper but there is the whole aspect of the fact that I am terrified of disappointing my mother and father because I have already done so much damage to them with my addiction issues, ect. I just want to let you know that you have helped me make the decision to follow what makes me happy. I am going through with getting my degree so my mom doesn’t murder me but I am not going to live my life in fear of anyone. I have lived hard for a long time and for as young as I am and it’s time I be my own advocate. I cannot say thank you enough, Jeff. There is more that I planned on saying but I can’t remember and I have to jump in the shower so I will see you on Periscope (if not tonight than soon!)!!
