Jails. Institutions. Countless addictions. Fights. Shootings. Animal attacks. Commercial fishing accidents. Robberies. Middle school. Detention Centers. Misguided parenting. Public School. Ignorant teachers. Corrupt coworkers. Lies. Shmear campaigns. Being broke. Being hungry. Being homeless. Lies. Lying. Deception. Deceiving. Angry Ex’s. Possessions. Police brutality. I’ve been demonized every step of my path for doing what I do what I do best... ME. That’s a list of the shit I have survived. There’s more but no need to bore you. The point is, I’m here. I am alive. I am happy. You’ve made it this fucking far in a world of chaos and deception. You deserve a mother fucking round of applause. Keep Going. The path. Follow the path. As it unfolds. Take the doorway opening every “Now” and don’t look back. It’s getting better, but better wouldn’t be getting anywhere if we didn’t have “Worse” as a reference point.
