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. Check it out and consider sharing yours….you never know who it might inspire, touch, or encourage. After all, the greatest commandment is to love one another…even if it means making yourself completely vulnerable.
An absent (addicted/alcoholic) father
Teenage pregnancy and miscarriage
War (I was in OIF1)
Rage and anger issues
Being physically aggressive
Grieving a parents death
I’ve survived because of:
Purpose and calling
Most importantly…I’ve survived because of the love of others and the father.
Consider sharing your “life list” below in the comments.
Stay sober my friends,
