This week has been a most wonderful and enthralling experience the likes of which I have never felt in years. I made some new friends, partied like a mofo, finished my writing workshop book, and maybe even met someone I may even fall in love with; fingers crossed on the last upper. These events have brought me out of that damn dark hole I somehow managed to crawl into and into a new light much more brighter than any other lighthouse or sun could produce. I feel like me again! Just keep in mind that this positive energy is all a part of a much bigger picture in comparison to what lies ahead in the not-too-distant future and if, and if only, there is a time when that hole presents itself; all I need to do is stay focused on these little victories to conquer even the most towering of mountains. Are you here with me? Are you still in that hole of despair? The old adage says life gets better as we go and THAT IS completely true! If I were to stay in that hole how else could I be here writing to you at this moment? If everything was in reverse I would be a drug-addled youth full of useless dreams and ambitions that would never be undertaken no matter what traumatic incident swung my way. But behold! I am a man anew, I am free, and ultimately, I am unstoppable! This feeling is a feeling that is a choice, a mere choice so simple and easy to find no matter where you are or what you are facing. Even in our darkest hour, there will always be a small crack to let the light in. Biggest question for you is, how are you going to make that crack to extinguish the darkness? This can easily be done by knowing what you got and what you have going for you is just...a piece of a stage that will soon evolve into a full fledged, breathtaking orchestra! Lead the band and make that music. Keep on going, writing friends!
