Checkin’ “What We’re Meant For”



There are so many ways to explore to bring awareness, to start conversations, and to bring understanding and compassion to Mental Health.

I think the more and more we explore these things, the more and more we find ways to bring up these conversations the better off we are. The thing is, topics of Mental Health do go beyond the conditions but of course include them.

That being said, art & film is an incredible way to connect with people and kick start these conversations. Its a conversation for all ages. Its a conversation that the 2D Animated Short “What We’re Meant For” is aiming to inspire.

I got to talk with the Producer and Director of ths 2D Animated Short that explores loss, family and mental health. Topics that explore the condition side of Mental Health but also emotional awareness and the relationship it has within us, but also within those around us.

You can learn more about “WHAT WE’RE MEANT FOR” and help be a part of its creation. The Kickstarter campaign is going strong until April 12.

Checkin’ Addiction & Recovery with Guest Sam Morris



“Wherever you go, there you are” – Jon Kabat-Zinn

There are many ways we can find to run away. Run away from a situation, from a relationship, from a setting but essentially from ourselves. We can literally pick ourselves up and move, we can cut people out, we can find comfort in food, find our escape in drugs or alcohol. This is actually a common human trait, and go-to. Some choices may seem healthier than others, and there are choices that become more toxic. Either way though, they do become choices we get lost in.

This is the life that Telos Lifestyle Founder Sam Morris has lived, and its the one he is bringing awareness to. As well as inspiring others to do so as well.

Sam Morris is a Personal Trainer, a Recovering Addict , and Personal Development Coach with a focus on Recovery and Sobriety. To sum someone up in a few words is difficult, but what you get with Sam Morris is someone real, authentic, a man who went from a College Athlete to an Alcoholic to a Personal Development Coach. A survivor who embraced facing himself so he could make the choice to live. Now, he is helping others find their own path with their choice.

“Are you open to change?” – Sam Morris

Checkin’ Perceptions with Guest Lawson Patterson



The word “healing” when it comes to Mental Health, is a bit misleading to me. Especially if you look at it in terms of our physical health. We think of a wound being smoothed over. We think, two pieces being mended back together. I’ve started to look at healing differently now.

I look at my growth and my healing as one thing. If I don’t keep opening up I’m not growing, and if I am not growing I am not healing. The more closed off to anything I am, the more I choose to form walls and boxes around me and my thinking. We might think particular boxes or walls are small and insignificant. They are not. However, we walk our path with opening those spaces and claiming them.

Thats what I talked about in this week’s episode with Spiritualist, Medium and Healer Lawson Patterson.
