Hello, and I hope everyone is having a good day! Yeah, that’s right, 7 months today baby! And going strong. There has been a lot of ups and downs, smiles and cries, learning, realizing, admitting, and laughs, to say the least. The past 7 months have been the best of my life. I have acquired some really close friends and new family. I fell deeply in love with a good woman. I made the deans list in college. I have had a couple of jobs, but the one I have now is truly a blessing. Life is pretty good today. Although I still have my own character defects and faults, I have grown. I have grown in ways that I am unsure of how to explain. I have found God. My spirituality is stronger now than ever before. I have my own place. I pay my own bills. I learned how to live without drugs or alcohol basically. I am more grateful than ever before. Sometimes my life comes undone. Well, I have learned that, that is okay. What matters is that I do put it back together, and how I do it. I have fallen off the proverbial horse several times in this past seven months. But I got back up, and kept on going. I remain positive, and keep ahold of the love I have in my heart. I stay connected and hungry for more. my addiction and my life evolve, so I evolve with it. What other choice do I have? I do take other people’s inventory so to speak, but, I want to make sure who I am choosing to be around is genuine and sincere. That they have the same or similar morals as I do. I can not afford to be fooled about this again. Thank you to the ones who have helped me come this far!!! To those of you out there in the grip of it, I pray that today is the day your life changes forever as mine has and continues to. God Bless! I love you and you matter.
