Sitting inside my office, I couldn’t help but feel overwhelmed by everything happening in my life. December was a month of intense highs and lows, and I was struggling to keep my head above water. On the one hand, I was thrilled to have brought Nicole into Purfek Storm Group as an intern. It was the least I could do to help her out, and seeing her work hard and learn new skills gave me a sense of purpose. She was still battling cancer, and her health was wavering back and forth with each round of chemo. Every day felt precious, and I was grateful to have her in my life. But on the other hand, my personal life was crumbling around me. My relationship with Brenna was suffering, and my drinking was out of control. I was fueled only by alcohol and ego, and it was starting to show. My relationships with the Bud and Roach team were on the rocks, and I was struggling to maintain my professional persona. How had things gotten so out of hand? I had always prided myself on being in control, but now it seemed like everything was falling apart. Looking around my office, I saw reminders of the many celebrities who had come through here for marketing assistance. I tried to take a deep breath, to calm my racing thoughts, but my mind kept returning to the same questions. Was I really making a difference in the world, or was I just spinning my wheels, caught in the endless pursuit of success? Was I really doing everything I could to support those around me, or was I too consumed by my own demons to see the damage I was causing?
