At some point, I woke up, and I started really thinking about the choices I was making. I started caring what the outcome would, or could be. I started caring about the people who were helping to influence my decision-making.
At some point I decided to take my life in a direction that would be good for me, a positive direction, one where my prior bad choices and life happenings could be used to encourage others, and help with their emotional healing.
Wow do I have a long way to go to reach some of my own personal goals. But, wow have I come a long way from the person I was 10, 20, even 30 years ago.
What an incredible journey this has been.
