30 Days of Truth, Day 02 : Something you love about yourself.

Today we continue the 30 Days of Truth series.


Day 2

Something you love about yourself.

Some people say it’s easier to write about things you hate than things you love.  This used to be very true for me.  I was a negative person, often deeply depressed, and anybody who’s ever had to deal with depression knows that finding anything beautiful or lovely or loving can be a very difficult thing.  I have made a conscious effort the past year to change my mindset on things, and to fill my life with positive people and positive attitudes.  The change has been palpable for me; I feel better, I act nicer, and I treat everybody around me better.  That positivity attracts more posivitity.  As such, there’s all kinds of things I love about me right now.

I love that I am growing as a person.  I love that I am embracing who I am without shame or guilt.  I love that I am actively seeking to fill my life with positive people and positive situations.  But what I love about myself most of all if my resiliency.

I have been through a great deal in my life.   I have faced obstacles and difficulties since childhood, and have continued to face similar hardships into adulthood.  I have become estranged from friends and family, lost a wife, lost a house, lost a car, even lost access to my biological children through legal wranglings and hyper-conservative judges and my inability to afford quality counsel.  I have broken down into weeping fits for hours on end, stood at the edges of roofs and wondered how hard the ground below might be.  And I am still here.

I am here to live a life full of love and joy and positive energy.  I am here to embrace all the joys and pleasures that Mrs. AbsinthePassion and I can find.  I am here to build my life with her, to embrace her children as my own, and to make a good life with her and our family.  I am here to love, and be loved by, those who enter my circle and find warmth and love and kindness there.

I love that I can overcome pain and despair and depression to find love on the other side.  I love that I was strong enough, even when feeling abject weakness and defeat, to find a way to struggle through and come out the other side.  I love that I withstood the assault.

I love that I am here to be me.


Stay SINful, friends.
