Hey guys. This is Lenny. Some of you may have heard of me before or just follow HMJ because it is cool. I started HMJ almost 4 years ago without clear vision of where I wanted it to go. I just wanted to have a way to get my writing out there because I knew that was something I wanted to be able to do in the lifetime. It has become so much more though. It is something that has taken me to many different events and helped me to have to the opportunity to meet lots of cool new people including celebs, activists, fans, and lots of other cool people. I have had cyphers with idols and learned more about marijuana than I even imagined existed before starting this thing.
I am moving and establish HMJ as a business based in Southern California next month. The original plan was to move into a house and run it out of the house. We do not have the money yet to make this a reality but I am making the first steps. I have lived in NYC for the last two years but in less than a month I am going to California to find housing and beginning to establish us out there. I am excited and nervous about this and I was hesitant to write about it because if I do that I feel like I actually have to follow through with it. No more fear though.
I decided to make this a daily blog for you guys to check out our status with this move and help to reconnect myself back with the original purpose to write for my own publication and prosper from it.
Goal #1 – Write on HMJ everyday
I will be blogging about this every single day until I fly out to Cali.
Goal #2 – Quit Smoking Cigarettes once and for all
I hate that I smoke cigarettes. I always have. I started smoking before I started weed and if you ask me, THOSE are the real gateway drug. Either way, I no longer want cigarettes to be a part of my identity moving forward because of the obvious reasons but also because they are part of the reason marijuana remains illegal. This will be hard but I will do it.
Goal #3 – Drivers license
I have not had a drivers license for a few years because of an uninsured accident I had almost 10 years ago. In LA you need a car unlike NYC.
I love HMJ but for the past two years I was disconnected from it emotionally and I have not contributed to its development nearly as much as before. Despite this, I did not want to quit HMJ and I built a team of great people to keep things going. The amount of people who appreciate and support the work we do with it has blown me away and this year has seen a lot of profound things happen in my personal life. As a result of this it has made me really start to realize who I am, what my identity is and how HMJ fits in with this.
One thing that I realized is that I want to have durable confidence and happiness. I realization I had to have is success does not equate happiness but it helps. I was stuck on getting HMJ to a point where we are making a certain amount of getting a certain amount of content out without appreciating the journey and the things that you learn and experience with that. In life it is not always about the end result of an adventure but the journey that got you there.
I love HMJ and I cannot guarantee that it will last forever but I can tell you that this is the beginning of a new renaissance in our history and I am really happy to have the support of all of the people who have been there with us for a long time. There is no way we would have been able to continue this movement without you. The kind emails, tweets and messages you all send with appreciate motivates the hell out of us. I will be blogging the entire process from here to Cali and I will update you guys daily. Look out for it with pictures, tweets and much more from this.
