Acceptance (yet again)

Knowing when to walk away from a situation of any nature is something I truly believe most people know deep down but choose to ignore in hopes of things getting better or changing over night. For years I didn’t just ignore my gut instinct, I deliberately fought it. Turning a blind eye on my own intuition, by drowning myself in gallons upon gallons of vodka. I became more reckless, drinking while driving, shots during the day, and once I discovered that awful entire body buzzing, head and heart pounding agony never came as long as I kept drinking. Hell, as long as I kept drinking, I truly didn’t care if my relationships went to absolute shit. And let’s face it, if I wasn’t truly trying to escape reality, how great could they have possibly been at that of my one way ticket to an early grave?

1.) Knowing when enough is enough

2.) Having the courage to change

3.) Walking away from things you know will hurt you

4.) Intuition; my mother always said there isn’t one quite like a mother’s

5.) Healthy fear

6.) Intestinal fortitude (if your reading this Rob, I will always think of you when I hear or think of this)

7.) Unconditional love, the rest is horse shit

8.) Elise Corinne ❤️❤️

9.) Jamie, my wife. She’s helped me become an adult again, I don’t know if she knows how much she has helped me get to a point where no matter what happens. I will be ok

10.) God’s grace

Knowing when to walk away or dig deeper and fight for your life isn’t easy to always recognize and accept. But what do they say? “Acceptance is the answer to all my problems today”, because that’s all we have right now to make best of and be the best version of self;

today. And if no one has told you they love you today, I love you.


Yours truly,


Anna
