I believe perseverance is the greatest quality anyone can possess within their character. The battles we encounter in our lives are testaments to our livelihood and how we grow from these experiences.  We should be growing on a daily basis to further our knowledge of self. I understand we cannot always be victorious in these situations, but we must take away the valuable lessons which present themselves. Remember nothing in life comes easy. 

As for me, I am 33 days sober today. I am not really tempted to start drinking again because I know the path it will lead me down, back to the fiery abyss of hell. Plus I don’t feel the need to be a douche bag anymore. My mind, body and soul is filled with clarity and focus. It felt very good writing a new record last night. It feels tremendous waking up with no regrets or trying to figure out what I did the night before. Yes, I’m being completely honest. I’m beginning to realize that things I thought were important are so trivial and unimportant. I know exactly what I want out of life and that is to be genuinely happy trudging down the road toward my destiny. My friends, family and love relationships are intact where I want them to be. Plus, I have made new friends who do not drink and we have fun without feeling the need to drink to have a good time. It’s a very refreshing period in my life. Life goes on and the reality is some people go and some people stay. 

I hope you all had an amazing weekend!

Til next time,

Dylan
