Two years today, I woke up to the news that the man who had been my beacon and guided me through all aspects of life - career, spirituality, love - was no longer in my life. And just like that, everything was different. It’s been an interesting ride trying to navigate such a significant loss. Through it I’ve become more aware of how fleeting life is and how you may never really the value of a moment until it becomes a memory. But perhaps most importantly it’s made me see the influence I could be having on other people, and that it’s up to me to determine what kind of influence that is.
Rex, while you had some amazing words (#rexism), the biggest impact you had on me was what was left unsaid. Thank you for leading me by example - and inadvertently teaching me to do the same.

“I do absolutely nothing [in my free time]. I go home and stay there. I wash and scrub up each day, and that’s it. One month I actually grew a mustache, just so I could say that I’d done something.”
