With how many blog posts I have made, I feel like I haven’t said too much about myself. I want to give everyone the opportunity to ask me anything in the comment section and I will answer it to the best of my ability.
First off, my name is Matt Findora and I am 26 years old. I have been married to my beautiful wife, Pebbles, for 3 and a half years now. We have two children, Blair Olivia and Zoe Jade, who are 2 and a half years old and 7 months old.
I was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio and I currently reside in Fort Worth, Texas. At the end of August, we will be moving to Iwakuni, Japan. We are all nervous and excited for the change.
My childhood was not the greatest and yet, my childhood is what gives me the ability to help people. I know what it’s like to go from having nothing, having no, for a lack of a better term, purpose. I had no path, no road to follow and no idea what to do with my life. I was given no direction by anyone and every time I thought I had a plan, I was told no, do this instead. I wanted to do sports, I was told to focus on my studies. I played the viola when I was younger and I wanted to continue learning, but I was told no, do this instead.
I was surrounded by negativity. Always being reminded how miserable our life was and the uncertainty of our future. Change was unadaptable. It was as if our life was predestined to be doomed, at least that’s how it felt.
Recently, while I was watching Jane the Virgin, (phenomenal show, by the way), I began to think why I wrote when I was younger. What I realized was that it was a way for me to escape reality and write my own future. Although fiction and fantasy, I was trying to change my life; make it better.
I had finally found my way out into the real world. It started by getting a job as soon as I turned 16 and continued once I found a greater purpose. 4 months after getting my first job I realized I wanted something more. I didn’t want to just go through life by going through the motions, I wanted to thrive. I wanted to lead. Later I joined the military and found out what I really want to do is help others be the best versions of themselves. I didn’t want anyone to ever go through something so meaningless or negative. So, I started writing again and made this blog. My hope is to change someone’s life. After that, change someone else’s and so on and so forth.
In the comments section below, please ask any question you want to get to know me better. Thank you and have a great day.
