    This week's guest is Cory Reese. Corey is a writer and author so I'll let his bio speak for itself! 

    I am so grateful Cory has joined me on the show to talk about so much. You can connect with him on his website https://www.coryreese.com/home and purchase his books here https://www.amazon.com/Stronger-Than-Dark-Relationship-Depression/dp/1736966405/ref=tmm_pap_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1623181555&sr=8-1

    Hi.
     
    My name is Cory. I am a…well…it’s complicated.
     
    I am a husband. I am a dad to three teenagers. I am the owner of a Great Dane named Little Debbie who loves nothing more than to steal pizza off the kitchen counter.
     
    Wait. There is so much more to me.
     
    I am a Kia Sorento driver. A CPAP wearer. A Utah Jazz fan. A child of a father who took his life. An ally. An ex-Mormon. A terrible handyman. A recovering Twinkie addict. A snow hater and a sun lover. A composer of piano music. A believer that good things are coming.
     
    I am afraid of needles. Obsessed with Bruce Springsteen. Fierce in my distaste for seafood. Proud of myself for memorizing every line of Planes, Trains, and Automobiles.
     
    I am an ultramarathon runner. I’ve run dozens of 100-mile races. Badwater. Western States. Wasatch. 100 miles around a high school track. 100 miles around the deck of a cruise ship. I’ve fallen in love with the sense of satisfaction that comes from seeing what I’m capable of, and realizing that it’s usually more than I think.
     
    I am an author. I’ve written for a bunch of publications over the years, and am currently a columnist for UltraRunning Magazine. I’ve written a few books titled Nowhere Near First, and Into the Furnace. My new book is called Stronger Than the Dark, and explores the intimate relationship between running and depression. I want to be like David Sedaris when I grow up.
     
    I am a social worker. For two decades, my career has involved walking with people into the darkness, and talking about hard things. My occupation: aspiring beam of light. I know people all around me are fighting silent battles. I have been the one providing therapy, and the one receiving it. I am passionate about advocating for mental health.
     
    Wait. There is so much more to me.
     
    Those are the labels that define me. But I am more than a list of labels.
     
    I am enthusiasm. I am determination. I am broken. I am whole. I am light. I am adventure. I am creativity. I am love. I am enough.
    Warmly,
    Nico Barraza

Healing as a process not a destination

Fantastic content in all episodes. This one particularly helped me get into a better space, putting down fear and resentment and picking up hope. Letting go of a past that I thought I wanted, leaving me thinking that some fantasies are best left unfulfilled and yet I can bring dreams I never even dared to dream, to life.

Awesome in every way!

Absolutely love Nico’s podcasts!

All the content he creates and explores, and his approach to delving deeper and doing the work is beautiful to witness. So grateful for him sharing his journey, thoughts and musings and for those he has on the podcast!
