    You know all the stupid stuff

    that gets you down? Don't let it. You are much better than that so started realising it now. Ignore and forget the cr*p. And just learn to enjoy every moment, like every moment in the present is simply the best. You can make it if you really want to.

    Embrace The Change...

    This is what I keep trying to tell myself, despite the fact that I worry about stupid things. I worry what people will think when I do certain things. I worry about the outcomes of things that haven't even happened yet.A little bit of nervous energy is sometimes a good thing. It...

    I am one month sober today.

    I thought I was going to ruin it earlier this week, but I didn't. I used to drink 4-5 glasses or more of whiskey/rum/vodka per night. Now I don't have a single drop.

    It's been almost 2 weeks

    since I've smoked a cigarette. I didn't think I would be able to do it at first, especially without the use of nicotine patches or gum, but it's honestly very easy now. Week 3 here I come!!

    When I was a kid, I'll always wonder what it's

    like to be an adult. I grew up so fast, I mature too quickly that it's not even the right time to be matured enough. The thing is that, I'm surrounded by different kinds of people, mostly way older than me. I was that kid that would chill with older people and still manages to...

    Through failure, we learn how it is possible to

    succeed. Through continual failure, we obtain the endurance we need to overcome the trials that await before us. Through success earned with failure, we gain the motivation we need to keep pressing onwards, no matter the enemy. This is how I see failure. While it can be...

    RENT INCREASE CONTINUED My rent went up $330

    per month, to $1000/mo. My SSDI is $999! But to meet my other fixed expenses, I would have to go back to work. Do I really avoid homelessness by staying or is leaving now a better choice, even though I would be homeless.
