30th birthday

A lot can change in a year.

Time forever marches on.

30 lit a fire in me. I finally found the strength to acknowledge and confront all that was wrong with my life.

This time 365 days ago I was on a collision course with rock bottom.

Its gravity was pulling me in with the strength of a cosmic singularity.

To be honest, I was ready and willing to be crushed.

As brutal as it would have been I didn’t see another way.

(Note to future self reading this – this is not a depressive outpour. Just a way to frame my thoughts so I can consider how much better things are now.)
