Whatever you are, be a good one.Abraham Lincoln (1809 – 1865)
I have learned that if I can be the best that I can be in all that I do… with enthusiasm, trust and joy. Or, I can doubt myself, deny myself the experience and pout!
Today I choose to give it all I have.
I spent too many years sitting on the fence of ambivalence, wishing and hoping for my “luck” to change, get better breaks, or win the lottery.
V I C T I M is not a pretty word, when I place it in front of my name. I lived as one for much of my life, and didn’t realize it until I found the answers I had been seeking. Not in the lower places I had been looking but in the rooms of a 12 step program that had been in existence for many years.
I was not looking for a recovery program because I didn’t think I had a substance abuse problem. I thought it was “THEM”!!!! Oh boy, was I ever shocked to find out I had a disease that had escalated over almost 20 years to the point that I didn’t care if I lived or died.
One day at a time, one meeting at a time, one step at a time, one inventory at a time, one prayer at a time… I was healed from a seemless hopeless state of mind and body. I began to find myself, I found God and I found you!
So almost 30 years later I feel comfortable in my own skin and strive to be the best I can be one moment at a time… and I like this way of living so much better!
I didn’t become Happy, Healthy and In Love overnight… I want to share my journey with you. I want to share my dreams with you, my photos as I see life today, and together we can share our hopes… I look forward to hearing from you as well.
Won’t you join me?
