Tuesday, we had a meeting with financial aid at the college. The counselor was telling us to apply for these scholarships. I have been diligent with applying, and I almost said something out of anger. I have not received a dime just of yet with this school, but at a another school, I almost obtained everything I applied for and I am grateful. Since having back surgery and not being able to do the work I used to, sometimes it just hurts. Something said not too a word, I let it go and finished class.
On yesterday, I received a email that I got the big scholarship that I applied for. Another email came and i have been accepted in the program of my first choice. Since being sober and working on the additional flaws of my character, life is coming together finally. This has is a journey that is full of rewards if I just keep doing the right thing. I need to stay consistent with not being in control, sit in the back seat, and let uber drive. Sobriety on the last fall several years ago exposed me to me and how I need to just follow until the time comes to lead again. I must say that I am better off in the back seat.
In conclusion, I am not bragging, I am just giving thanks to making a choice to turn my life around and become someone that the universe wants me to be in the greater society as a citizen.

Three days ago I was holding him up walking on the street. It was very embarrasing for me to say the...
I can't take it anymore. For many reasons I now have 24/7 aides. One comes at 8:00 am leaves at 8:00 pm then another comes 8:00pm and leaves at 8:00 am...Every day it's the changing of the guards feeling. My days blur together and where I used to look forward to Fridays I don't have a weekend anymore. Because of health issures, my boyfriend cannot lift (transfer me) onto my wheelchair as I cannot...
