When I first started writing at all, I guess I was 19. I was a brat. I was a self-obsessed, self-entitled, drama queen. I was angry at the entire world. I think there is a big difference now. Now my anger is a lot more focused. 🙂 (At least most of the time.) Some of the anger has been elimated, exorcised, whichever term you would care to use. And now, well, I feel proud of myself. I like myself. A lot. A lot more now. I think of the reasons that I feel a lot more functioning as a human being… (I laughed out loud to that..) I think that I have gotten a lot of the anger and pain out – through writing, talking, and screaming out songs at the top of lungs driving down 95. If there is one piece of advice, that I would give you right now – in this instant – on this journey – it’s “To thine own self be true.” You aren’t going to be able to please every individual walking the face of this earth. But there is a guarantee of the one person that you are going to have to face, head on, each day – and that’s you. So everyday, when you look in the mirror, make sure that you like what you are going to see. I think I was an underdog. And through a lot of searching, the love of my friends, my family, my kids, my love and Angel Shaun, and most importantly God – I am no longer an underdog. I like what I see each day. And hopefully it can only get better from here. I love you all – good night.
