I took the Road less travelled.
I chose to read 1000 books instead of hustling to “make my first million before age 30.”
chose forgiveness instead of revenge.
I chose to say “no” to partying and porn while still enjoying wine and good times with a few friends.
I chose to worship God instead of pleasure, money, fame or power, knowing that in doing so, I will eventually be blessed with it all.
I chose to give freely of what little I had instead of hoarding it or saving it “for a rainy day.” I chose to work low paying jobs instead of scamming the state or others, knowing that I will eventually be paid well for my talent, skill and ability.
I also chose the humility to accept help from friends, church or state in times of need if there
were no other prospects. In doing so, I learned that we are powerful when we come together.
I chose to honor women and never degrade or mislead them with my language or manipulative actions.
Last but not least, I chose to admit that even in all this, I am still in need of help from my creator just to wake up every morning, just to breathe and most of all, to live and live rightly - a wholistic life (or a righteous, holy life)
I choose to believe that life is sacred and fragile and to be thankful and grateful at all times- even for the hard times, for the rain and for the pain.
And YES these choices have made all the difference.
I’m not an addict. I’m not angry. I’m not confused. I’m not perfect. I’m not a victim. I’m not depressed. I’m not just a consumer. I’m not a slave. I’m not deceived. I’m not racist, fake, fascist or frivolous.
Most of all, Im not done.
