Good morning to all the true believers out there! Woke up clean again! Happy St. Patty’s day to everyone. Of course me being Irish, I used to use this day as an excuse to get drunk all week long not just on the holiday. Well, not today. Today is just another day in the life of a man who is trying to find himself. A man trying to remain happy, joyous, and free. Today, along with yesterday, is just another day in the life of one man who is blessed in so many ways there are not enough trees to cut down to make all the paper it would take to write it all down. Today I woke up clean with a chance to watch the sunrise again. Today is just another day in the life of a grateful man blessed with having the chance to make the right choices. The song I posted before this is one of my favorites from The Beatles. I love the changes in it. Some days that is how drastic the day unfolds for me, in my mind at least, in my heart. They do not always start out slow for me, though. Some mornings I am wrenched out of bed from the nightmares, soaked in sweat, drowning in tears, lost in confusion, deaf from the silence. Like I have said before, its all smiles and cries, ups and downs, and even those long seemingly forever plateaus of monotonous life that can be the hardest. It took me a very long time to realize that I don’t have to use because of any of it, though. It will pass. When I think I have it bad, or I get the start of the “fuck-its”, First I pray, no shit, I really do, then I just sit and breathe. If you look around, wherever you are, you can always see someone that has it worse. Things can ALWAYS be worse. Google the phrase a day in the life and see what pops up on youtube. How about a day in the life of living in your car? How about a day in the life of a heroin addict homeless in the streets of Gary Indiana? Yeah, that shit is on there. A day in the life huh? I say just another day because sometimes it is just another day, one day at a time. I keep it simple, stay in the here and now. I hope everyone has a safe and happy St. Patty’s day and an even better weekend. I have some big life events this weekend I am looking forward to. Church with my niece again being one of them! So proud of that kid! To those of you out there in the grip of it, I pray that today is the day that your life changes for the better as mine has and continues to. God bless and stay up. I love you and you matter to me!
