In 2001, I was a high-paid television executive working on the set of a sitcom featuring two very wealthy, famous, and frankly very sweet teenage twins. (Rhymes with Larry-Bait and Mashley.)
I never saw a sunset (unless I caught it while going from the studio to the office), rarely ate a meal that wasn’t either eaten at my desk or with someone trying to sell me a show, and almost never stopped working. Being laid off due to a corporate merger—in 2002—was a blessing. I slowed down, watched the sky, and let my soul start to speak to me again about what it really really wanted.
And what it really wanted … was to go to Africa. Life has never been the same since.
