    How I Changed My Life

    NOTE: My memory sucks and all the ages in this are best guesses. I always had a lot of trouble as a kid in school - not with the work, I am very smart and was always top of my class, but with the people. I understand pepole more now, but I can remember being so confused...

    It all started in December.

    My dad had jaw cancer and my wife and I drove 1,000 miles to be with him and support him for his operation. The cancer was in his jaw and they were going to cut out part of his jaw, take some bone from his shoulder and muscles from his chest and rebuild his jaw. My dad kept...

    I used to be in the boat with the many of us.

    Feeling down and useless. And one day I decided that I will stop and take advantage of every second of everyday. So far I have gone an entire year of greatness and motivation.

    Am I Mad

    For too many years than I care to remember I have spent every working day being the big boss - running things - telling others what to do - and generally being in charge of a couple of thousand hard working and committed individuals. Not any more I've cashed in my savings...

    Yeah! To the point where everyone you thought

    was good friends start to leave. SMDH. Never mind they will be the one needing my hand when they need something changed in their lives, problem is I won't be there. I'll be busy like I'm chasing paper.

    I Found The Strength

    Growing up, I had terrible self esteem. I hated the way I looked. I had no friends. My parents fought constantly about my dad's infidelity. I never even had siblings to share my pain with. Though, thinking about it now, the dark cloud that surrounded my life then did have a...

    One Step At A Time

    Six months ago I, was not in the best of places. Floating in between jobs, lamenting about a lost relationship and debts hanging over me. Not everything has changed to the way I would like to see it, but it has improved. I found myself a new job, a new partner, new friends and...

    No Longer The Shrinking Violet

    As the title implies, I used to be shy. Painfully so. Constantly I'd look through my closet, choosing muted, dull colors out of fear of attracting attention. I thought whatever I had to say was unimportant and boring, that my physical appearance was homely at best, and doubted my...

    It's a work in progress.

    I'm trying to be healthy. In all areas of my life: physical, mental, social, even spiritual. It started with the accident. My therapist has this sort of motivational poster that says "if you're waiting for a wake up call, this is it!" I started seeing him for substance abuse...
