As my 31st birthday approaches, I can't help but to reflect.
I have literally learned more this year then any other.
About myself and the people around me, my limits, my talents, spiritual growth, dimming of Ego, seven years sober from hard drugs, leaving my longest relationship, clawing my way from the bottom in order to land the career of my dreams. Every aspect of my life has been ripped to shreds and beautifully been put back together.
Stronger than they were before too.
I overcame illness.
I didn't let it kill me.
Instead of wasting away I fought for myself. Stopped making excuses and I changed my own life.
I've lost thirty pounds that pills put on, and I'm not done. I don't focus on weight, but health.
Pharmaceuticals made it nearly impossible for me to shed it. No matter how good I ate or what my activity level was.
So I got off of everything and adopted the opinion of "I'm in pain no matter what I do, so I won't just waste away." No I won't push myself too far, but I've always liked a challenge.
I have so much to offer this world.
My body is changing and as much as it is frightening, it's the most precious thing I've witnessed.
There's knowledge in the lines of my hands.
No one in this world is going to hold you down but your damn self.
We can have the greatest support and all the resources,
but it's you who will see through it all.
Who implements the change.
