Here We Go Again!!!

I was convicted of multiple felonies back in 2001. I was 18 yrs. old, however this was not my first run in with the law. In my younger years I was on a extremely destructive path. When I was about 23yrs. old I met a girl her and father was a pretty prominent fellow. I was not allowed to date her if I didn't clean up my act. Well I did I am 27yrs. old now I carry 2 professional licenses in the state of Florida, Direct Disposer/Embalmer. Now I am employed full time at a funeral home and have been for the past 4 years. It took me a good amount of time before I recived the position that I currently have. I was turned down for employment so many times that I even considered returning to my feindish ways. In not giving up and in continuing to endure, I got this job wich has turned into a career. My point is do not give up!!!!!! It may take a moment to screw up, but a lifetime to fix. You out of the rest of society have something to prove, but once you do that no one will ever question you. Some key things. 1. Volenteer, put in as much time as you can with any kind of charity. The more service hours that you preform really helps to prove you want to give back to your community. 2. Education is monumental, this is another step on changing the way people think of you. 3.We are in terrible economic times, keep that in mind. There are poeple that out there with tons of education that cannot find employment. 4. Filling out applications is a numbers game the more you do the better your chances become. Hope this is helpful...... Nock from Florida.

Thank you for your inspiration. It really helps to hear some positive stories out there! If I could hear more good stories I might be tempted to do something about it.
