Good morning. Pretty powerful title huh? It is for me on the daily. There’s a bunch of ways to go with this, but I will di my best to keep it as I see it. Life happens. Shit doesn’t happen, Life does. There are two types of people in this world, One, the my cup is half empty type. Second, my cup is half full type. Both have their pro’s and con’s. I choose to be a my cup is refillable type. Because no matter what Life has to throw at me, good or bad, I will have to drink it from this cup every day, and every tomorrow brings more in my cup to drink, share, or splash on the ground. I have the choice of how I deal with Life today. Drugs and that life do not control my decisions anymore. That is a fight in itself, not letting drugs control my decisions anymore. I choose to remain positive no matter what. Now I am in no way saying that I do not get upset or angry, but I let it in, and then let it go. I have tools to help me deal with this today. Tools I have actually had my whole life, but was too scared to use them. I also cry sometimes five or six times a day. Sometimes good tears, and sometimes bad tears. I have tools for this as well. My tool box gets bigger and stronger every day. My pride does not get in the my way as much today. Notice I said as much? It still happens. As I am sure it always will, for I am a very proud man. Where I come from though, proud mouths go hungry, and I like to eat. Pride will sting your soul like a thousand bee’s if you let it. Again, choices to make as in how you , or I , decide to deal with life. I remain teachable today. I have let go the I know it all attitude and keep an open mind. All of this and prayer is an unstoppable force people. I am no good at math, but this is one equation I know works. If no one told you today, you matter to me. You can do all things through Christ. I love you, and Rachel, you got a sweet ass, just sayin! To those of you out there in the grip of it, I pray that today is the day your life changes for the better as mine has. God Bless. Smile until it hurts today!!!!
