Yep, anything. Almost anything is possible. This is one worth repeating. In fact, if I were you, I’d say it every day to yourself.
If thinking along those lines got me here from where I started, then you never know how it can help you when you’re feeling muddled and over-mutted.
My story “from prison to poetry” (so to speak) is proof that overcoming adversity is possible…with alot of help, hard work, some fun in-between, and determination to transform.
I’ll get back to this later, but these days, it really matters that each of us look at ways to better ourselves, help others, and make a difference in the world. We’re seeing the carnage around us from self-focus, self-aggrandizement, and me-me-me, more-more-more. It’s a new day, and time for new approaches to how we live.
“Confront the dark parts of yourself, and work to banish them with illumination and forgiveness. Your willingness to wrestle with your demons will cause your angels to sing. Use the pain as fuel, as a reminder of your strength.”
-August Wilson, playwright. His father was White (a German immigrant) his mother was Black. Twice won the Pulitzer Prize for drama.
