You just woke up and you see the light coming through the half closed curtains. That is when you realize that today is going to be a beautiful sunny day. And feel the joy of being alive.
That is pretty much how I wake up every day. And it’s one of the things I cherish most in my life. That feeling of possibility, opportunity, and energy.
But it wasn’t always that way. I used to wake up every morning feeling a deep regret for what I had done the night before. And a surging fear of how to get through the day. After that I would realize my body to be hurting, my head full of sawdust and painful. And I would vow that today would be the day I would finally stay on the right path.
That was almost 4 years ago now, and I could never have imagined what my life would become.
Until next week…
