This comes from SethAdamSmith.com, a blog that started with a suicide attempt in 2006:
I’m Editor-in-Chief of ForwardWalking.com, a website dedicated to helping people move forward in life. Throughout my life, I have struggled with depression, culminating in a suicide attempt in 2006. Since working as a TrailWalker at the ANASAZI Foundation, I have come to know the healing power of walking “the path of WE,” that is, reaching out to others. Truly, walking “the path of WE” is what saved my life—and what has made life worth living.
My name is Seth Adam Smith. I was born in Alaska and raised in the American West. My travels have taken me all over the world—from the Arizona desert to the Siberian wilderness—only to lead me back home, to marry Kim, the girl of my dreams.
Strangely enough, you might already know me as a direct result of my marriage to Kim. In November 2013, I wrote an article called “Marriage Isn’t For You.” It was a simple blogpost that shared some advice my dad had given me prior to getting engaged to Kim. 30 million views (and dozens of translations later), Kim and I are still shocked (and humbled) by it’s world-wide success.
That article has launched my literary career. Now I’m on a “literal” odyssey to publish and market three books—this year. Two of my books have already been accepted for publication (one through Berrett-Koehler Publishers, and another throughShadow Mountain Publishing). Authoring a book is something that I’ve wanted to do since I was ten, so the fact that it’s all happening is almost unbelievable. But I’m just a lover of literature and I’m constantly amazed by the power of words and the ability they have to shape and heal our souls.
As part of that, I created TheAlaskanMuse.com to share “the Northern Lights of Literature.” I also love being able to tell stories through video. Since 2004, I’ve produced hundreds of videos and articles for businesses, non-profits, artists, and political causes.
