Sharing my burn out with you all was something I didn't want to do. We always want to leave you feeling inspired, joyful, and ready to take on your week ahead. But these past two weeks I just couldn't push through. I had no energy, I wasn't sleeping, my stress levels were at an all-time high and I stopped doing everything I know to be good for me (exercising, eating clean, etc). I had run myself to my breaking point and I am lucky enough to have a support system around me to give me the space to recover and dust me off ✨. A huge thank you to Lee (@Life with Lee ) for being the kind of friend that doesn't wait to be asked for help but instead jumps in headfirst the second she sees a friend in need.
Important note: we are the first ones to admit how LUCKY WE ARE to live this life together, to have our health, and to be in a position of such privilege. Please know that we haven't lost sight of that and never will. Thank you for being a part of our community x

  • I went looking for this video today because I remembered what an incredible friend Lee was to Eamon and Bec, and I wanted to see her beautiful, vivacious spirit shine through the screen again. It's still so hard to believe that she's gone, and I can't even imagine what a loss it is for her friends and family.

  • This is the video I think of when I think of Lee. You can see how special she was from this. Totally stepped up and helped her friend going through a rough patch. I don’t think I’ll ever forget this video and I want to be this kind of person

    • I was thinking of this video too. I never followed Max and Lee, or watched too many old videos featuring Lee, so this was the first video I’ve seen of her. This shows what a beautiful person she was and I thought they were so lucky to have a friend like Lee.

  • Seeing footage of Lee really breaks my heart. But I still feel like coming back to this ♥️ She was such a beautiful and radiating soul and has brought so much joy to peoples lives. What happened really brings everything in perspective. My heart shattered into a million pieces when I read the news yesterday. I cried so hard, even though I never knew her personally. But: I have and still do identify with her mental health journey on several levels and throughout her journey she gave me a lot of hope. It is scary when darkness takes over. Luckily I had an appointment with my therapist the very same day the news came out. We spoke about this the whole session and I finally dared to open up about a lot of feelings and dark thoughts I was holding onto and was afraid to verbalize before . I hope that all people who are struggling out there take this as a reminder to never give up hope, to take their needs and feelings seriously and never be afraid to ask for help. We'll never forget you Lee, thank you for sharing your journey with us, you inspired a lot of us to keep going ♥️

  • We loved her so much. All I wish is that she is free now from all that was harming her. We will always hold her in our hearts, thank you for having her be apart of our lives through your guys videos. This was the most selfless thing she did that I got to see on camera and I thought this was the nicest thing considering how stressed you guys were and she came to your rescue. We love her energy so much and it still moves through though she’s gone in spirit .

  • I’m devastated. I haven’t been watching long, just about a year, but I loved Lee so much. Hearing the news, I immediately remembered this video and had to come back to it. I just wished for so many things to have gone differently. I wish to celebrate how wonderful she is instead. My heart goes out to you, Eamon and Bec, and to everyone like me who had this invisible yet strong connection to her in more ways than one.

  • I don't think many people remember this one because it doesn't have Lee in the thumbnail, but I am so touched by the way she took over the channel on this occasion and even braided Bec's hair. What an angel. She truly was and is so special, a magnetic force as everyone said. She was meant to create change, and she will impact so many. She will save so many lives.

I hope your lives are filled with happiness and success and I’m on for the ride now. I’m grateful I found this channel you have been a bright light for me and I’m sure many others during a tough time. ❤️

  • Ok , I've enjoyed your vids as of a month or so ago. So your life's purpose is about making videos about yourselves because it supports you monetarily. That's great, you are actors here to entertain. Now you have delved iinto the reality of actually sharing your behind the scene REALITY because.... you didn't have other content or you just felt like being open and honest about what's currently happening in your lives cause that is purportedly What your vids are about, right? I mean c'mon isn't this just a variation of the The Trueman Show? First nice golfing second you have a plush life, third y'all seem like capable, fun, , ambitious pleasant peeps that have exploited their lifestyle to broadcast on youtube to support themselves. Thanks for being real! Anybody everywhere in this carnation is going to have challenges, we all deal with them differently, they actually define what type of people we are. Thanks for your reality 😊

  • As a long-time van-liver (not #vanlifer) I've been calling this scenario out for years and years. I'm not being an asshole just a realist. In order to make living in a vehicle work long term a person either needs to be extremely eccentric or they need to have a BIG passion (and a mobile community) that is augmented by living in a small, mobile space. The reality is; this #vanilfe craze is going to end soon like all fads.

  • Over a month late but still true -- I love Lee Read and her energy, she's a great replacement (and equal) to Bec, I watch this channel not only for the positivity but the 'BEING REAL' and telling it like it is when things are going rough. Do more of showing your daily life and routine, not just specific projects ~ I love being part of you guys' life no matter how boring. Also do more kitchen segments, Eamon is a fantastic cook!

    KULBIR SINGHKULBIR SINGH4 months ago
  • You’re allowed to have a rough go of it and feel those feelings - no matter your lot in life. Can’t compare you’re life’s journey and your life’s experiences to anyone else’s, that’s not fair. Someone will always have it worse, doesn’t mean your pain or discomfort should be any more tolerable. Find that balance of being grateful for what you do have but always giving yourself permission to be allowed to express, own and work through your own pain or discomfort, or burn out or what have you. You can’t gloss over those emotions, you HAVE TO work your way through them. That means sitting in the uncomfortable feelings for a moment, just not staying here too long. Think of it like a mountain you have to climb to get to the other side. You want inner peace, but you can’t have it without the balance of confronting the lows, to really appreciate the highs. They say you can’t know true happiness unless you’ve been through true sadness. Feel your feelings to work those psychological muscles where pain and discomfort live. You’ll only strengthen your mental and emotional well-being by climbing back up out of the lows of life. Like building a foundation of mental and emotionally wellbeing, that way you can solidly enjoy what you build up to reach your highs. Don’t know if you’re getting what I’m saying. Tamping down emotions because you’re feeling guilty about them is really unhealthy and leaves you on shaky mental and emotional ground. Life’s stressful, doesn’t mean you’re not grateful. It just means you’re human ❤️

  • It's so okay to feel down and stressed at times! I'm an anxious person and sometimes I feel so much stress for no big reason. I used to feel guilty about it because I have a roof over my head and food on the table every day. But I'm working on the fact that we all have the right to feel what we feel no matter the reason. It's all fine and I wish you that this situation will bring something positive at the end. You're doing an amazing job on this channel and all the other stuff and if you need some time off, just take it, nobody - hopefully - would blame you for that! Much love ❤️(sorry for my English, I'm a Belgian french speaking ^^)

  • Please don't apologize for being burnt out, frustrated, it happens to everyone regardless of life/money/status, you're human! You are living my dream retirement life, I'm jealous! If you haven't been, when you get back on the road check out North Bay/Sudbury area - I used to go there for a few weeks to visit my grandparents when I was a kid - so beautiful, birch trees & lakes....it would be my choice for a summer cabin in Ontario (currently in southern US - hate the cold).

Everyone has good and bad days/weeks, etc. and I am so proud of you for sharing when things aren’t going so great. That’s what I (we) connect with...human emotions...not robots.... So take your time and take care of yourselves so that you can continue to share your adventures with us. Even if Eamon just runs around for 20 mins doing silly stuff, I will still be watching. Love you guys.

I'm so glad to see how supportive everyone is around you and the community you have built. You're the most wonderful human being and you deserve all the happiness in the world! I hope you feel amazing very soon! Much love 💛💛💛 xxx

Everyone has dealt with trying times the past six months but most of us have not had to deal with it publicly. You both have every right to feel stressed out. Thank you for being so vulnerable in public but you don’t owe your viewers anything special. I know you *feel* you do sometimes, but we should all just be grateful for any content you provide. Be yourselves. Have fun. Enjoy your lives. Love you guys. 🤗🤗
