And Life Begins

Goog morning to all my faithful readers. I’m going to keep this short because I’m posting on my phone. So, many of you may not know, but I have been in a homeless shelter veterans since July 18th. Before that I was in a residential treatment center for a little over a month. As I am thankful for the fact I wasn’t homeless and everything happens in the right time, I am beside myself with joy to be posting this from the living room of our home. Yes we have both been working feverishly at life, some days only to just maintain, the real work begins today .  I was told when I was a young Marine that if I acted like my platoon seargent was watching me at all times, I would never get in trouble. Y’all didn’t know my platoon seargent, just sayi n. This is when the devil is going to use my addiction to test me, to entice me, to try me. I am confident with the tools I already have and I continue to  learn about and acquire more as each day presents itself. This is when the real WORK begins though for me. Recovery  to me is not just about getting and staying clean, although somedays if thats all I do that is okay for me. Today I get to be Jason, the good man, the good boyfriend, the child of God, the dependable employee, the good student. Today life begins for me. As i sit here crying, I am so thankful. I am so excited. I am so grateful. For 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.20161007_202245.jpg
