The other day I came across these words and it just hit home. One of those moments in life where timing just works. -Don’t fight the natural flow and progression of life. The world shouldn’t conform to your objectives and goals and that’s okay. The truth is you will grow apart, you will change, you will evolve as a man and a woman into someone you may not recognize in the future. As long as your heart is true- your loyalty and commitment unwavering, it’s okay to walk a different path in career, friends and personal relationships. Stay true to your values and to yourself- let the vibration and inconsistencies of toxicity derail themselves naturally and pursue greatness. The greatest gift you have within your control is your ability to stay true to who you are and who you will become. Thank you @mike.a.glover for that. Hopefully this reaches someone like it reached me. #life#neverquit#goals#pma#santabarbara#crusheverything#happy#ffff#gandolfhandoff#getafterit
Left: coming off 10+ years,bottle and more a day of vodka, drug use (disclaimer: I seldom used. I’d choose booze over drugs any day), eating like shit, severally depressed, and suicidal. No hope in sight. Didn’t want help.
Right: asked for help. Sought help. Got help. Eating clean (er), working out and staying active. I’m happy. Life is fucking great. I feel great. -
This isn’t a post to say “look at me”. It’s to show you that you can do anything you put your mind to. I didn’t want to be sad and depressed anymore. I didn’t want to wake up and put a gun in mouth anymore. I didn’t want to feel sorry for myself anymore. I didn’t want to be unhappy anymore. I wanted a change so I fucking changed it. -
I choose to crush it now. I will continue with this journey. I’m gonna fuck shit up. I will reach my goals and leave that shit behind. I’m happy now and nobody will take that from me. I will go further and do it better. This is only the start. I’m here to fuck shit up. Thank you a million times over to @eddiemeat. Constant motivation and inspiration. Dude took his own personal time to help me with meals and work outs. As well as @bennybythegram all the same. I’m gonna fuck shit up. #santabarbara#happy#pma#ffff#crusheverything#nevergiveup#life#stoked#feels#grateful
