My name is Seth Adam Smith and I struggle with chronic depression. In 2006, I made a serious attempt to take my life. Miraculously, I survived. And since then, I have learned that true healing depends upon learning to love and serve others. I firmly believe that to give your life is to live your life.
Winston Churchill said it best when he said: “What is the use of living, if it be not to strive for noble causes and to make this muddled world a better place for those who will live in it after we are gone?…I avow my faith that we are marching towards better days. Humanity will not be cast down. We are going on swinging bravely forward along the grand high road and already behind the distant mountains is the promise of the sun.” Winston S. Churchill (Dundee, Scotland, on 10 October 1908)
As part of that commitment, I created TheAlaskanMuse.com a blog that shares “the Northern Lights of Lives and Literature” and ForwardWalking.com, an online magazine dedicated to helping people move forward in life.
