Not Just Another Day


Good morning to all my faithful readers. What a glorious day. I slept well, woke up to coffee already made, I woke up clean, I woke up, I slept without nightmares, and This will be my last day in a homeless shelter. I have so much to be thankful for today that it’s hard not to cry. I’m crying as I write this. Being an addict is hard work. It’s a daily fight for my life. SO when good things happen, expected or unexpected, they are still hard to accept. I have lived wrong for so long that living right does not come easy, or without a price tag. For so long I was numb to everything, even good things, as I have said before, that way no one could take them from me. As I accept the good things God has blessed me with today, I do with a tear in my eye. Not because I don’t feel like I deserve them, or I have not worked for them, but out of pure joy. You see, I am rich in so many ways that do not involve money or possessions. I think there are some people out there that may have me confused. Though a necessity yes, my world does not revolve around money or material things. I choose life today. I choose a better life today. I choose to help others selflessly that can not help themselves or may not even know how. This is what I am going to school for, and killing it I might say. I am truly reborn today. I am no longer Little Jay, I have become Jason today. I no longer wish to associate with my old nickname or the way I lived when I did. I am different than the man I was even yesterday. I am constantly changing as I am constantly learning. Learning how to be a better man. Learning how to live a better life. There is doubt in just trying. There may be failures in doing, but there is also great accomplishments. I move forward today with my head held high and a warm heart. I am a child of God and not afraid to say it. My life today reflects the decisions I made yesterday. I love you al and thank you for all the support and kind words. 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 is and continues to. God Bless. If no one told you yet today, I love you and you matter to me.15271556_325131284537323_1026104306_o
