    I Made It!

    I unfolded, begin to stretch .... arms out wide .... I stand .... I shake and wipe the dust off of me. I inhale, giving thanks to the Heavens for my new birth of life. I made it! sigh........

    One Day.

    I always say the past makes you who you are. And what you do now will effect your future. I can't say whether I'm such a big idiot or jackass for the decisions that I've made that are affecting me right now as I am typing this down. They are pretty humiliating to admit and I have...
