I could write a memoir of my life story so far. Problem is, who would read it? I’m not famous. I’m socially awkward and wouldn’t know the first thing about sales or promotion. I know though, that I’ve got a story to tell.
I know because I have a belief in the divine. The things you return to time and time again, like writing, are not coincidental. We return to our purpose. Writing gives my life a pulse, and puts my heart out there into the world.
Without further ado, I present to you my life story in a list. The “life list” is easy to read, yet powerful. It is minimal but effective. There are therapeutic rewards to reviewing your obstacles and how you overcame them. Check it out and consider sharing yours….you never know who it might inspire, touch, or encourage.
An absent (addicted/alcoholic) father
Teenage pregnancy and miscarriage
Rage and anger issues
Death of an estranged parent
How I survived:
Ultimately I’ve survived entirely because of love. I’ve survived because of the love of others and the father. We don’t get to love each other without being vulnerable. Being vulnerable means sharing your story with others.
Tell me one thing I survived that you want to know more about. I’ll write my next blog on it.
Stay sober my friends.
