Reborn like a Phoenix
Saving the world begins with saving yourself. That’s where the ‘magic’ begins!! The world changes because we change.
I was a guy that did very bad things, I didn’t care about color, religion, family, education, where ya lived, where you were from, or if you had kids, I targeted everybody that had something to give. I saw the world as this evil, ugly place that was filled with ‘takers and givers,’ and I was going to take whatever I could!! I wanted what you had and I was going to get it one way or the other. That’s the monster that once controlled my life, and chances are that monster is controlling someone you know.
I didn’t have a bad life growing up, my parents were ‘there’ for the most part, I wasn’t beaten or starved or neglected, I just felt different. I felt ‘alone’ in a room full of people. Trying to fill that ‘emptiness’ led me to drinking socially, which led me down a much darker path. And that ‘emptiness ’ inside me grew stronger….and so did the methods that I tried to fill it. When the alcohol no longer did it’s job, I switched to hard drugs and my life spiraled out of control. That’s the evolution of the addiction matrix, the custom designed addiction plan created just for you.
Today I can connect the dots and see how it consumed me in the ‘fire’ and dam sure how it almost destroyed me. There are brief ‘moments of clarity’ while we are ‘out there’ when the true reality of real life and what we’ve done really hits us, it paints this brutal vision that we have destroyed any chance of making it back. It was during one of these moments when I finally ‘stood up’ to the monsters inside me and told them ‘NO.’ This was not how my story, my life was going to end. I discovered I had the power to change, just like you have the power to change. We get better by taking a stand against the evil inside us, we face the absolute truth of the moment and guess what’s next? We move forward, we rebuild our lives. One day at a time for the rest of our life. And life does get better sooner or later. I promise 😇🙏
Rise from the ashes and be reborn!!
