In my lifetime, I have had several mental break downs. I’ve had several trips to the psyche ward for numerous attempts at suicide (two of them were baker acts). Since I have survived my own insanity, I might as well use what time is left productively. I will do this trying to inspire somebody with my words. I’ve been told many times that I needed to write my life story, that it would help someone. So inside of each reflection, I have inserted bits and pieces of my story. And I do hope it can help someone for then my living will not have been in vain. It is not easy to reveal all these personal journeys but I trust God and what He instructs me to do. I’ve also been told many times that I am here for a reason and looking back from where I have come from, I believe this is true.

Today I am on the other side of pain. The seed that was submerged in the darkness of dirt has risen into the sunlight and become a beautiful flower.
