This past week there were a lot of ups and downs for me. From helping a young guy find his way to treatment, to taking shots from some drunk guy I don't know, to an old friend's girlfriend telling me how bad I should feel. It was a rough week for a minute, I did my best not to react and instead acted. Was I pissed? Maybe a little, but not enough to let it throw me off my square. I'm the one who controls how I feel, it's up to me to take the time to process how I'm feeling and then decide what action I can take that will make me ok with the outcome. I don't need to be anyone's friend, I don't need to defend myself when someone's taking shots at me (at least he spelled my name right), I just need to keep doing the things I'm doing to better myself for a great future. Doing the little things right each day add up over time, right now they're up to 562 in a row. I can look back at the past 562 days and know that I didn't do it all in one day, but the progress I've made personally and professionally has come a long way. So, here's to the future and many days I'll spend living in the moment and not regretting the past. Here's to what each of us can control, how we act!
