For a long time, I  dreamed of the day when I would not use drugs. I would have dreams of a family, car, a good job and living a normal life. It was only a dream because I never was able to believe that I could actually ever achieve it.

I had many dreams that I would brush off as fantasy. I would say to myself
“Who are you kidding”
I failed at more things than I care to admit and low self esteem kept me stuck in a self made cycle, no prison.

I was missing the main ingredients to make my dreams become realities. I was missing the action. I was so stuck in my negative thinking that I killed my dreams before they could ever come to life. I self medicated thinking it made me feel better, but in reality it fueled that negativity and helped keep my dreams stuffed deep down inside. I wasn’t able to see anything good because of the black cloud that hung over me.

I am learning so many things about myself and life in general. I am able today to take healthy risks, to explore new things and pursue dreams that I never thought I would ever be able to. I am living the dream. The one where I wouldn’t be using drugs. I am doing things today as a direct result that I could only imagine a couple of years ago.

I am proud of myself
I am taking action and not taking a back seat. I am awakening and growing and doing.

And it feels amazing.

Peace and Blessings

  1. Hey Eric. Proud of you Friend, and excited as I continue to read of your life and growth. You are on the road to discovery of a big world, a world that you are a vital part of, a world that you can celebrate, and a world that will celebrate you and your life. You will continue to discover talents and gifts within yourself Eric, but they are meant for you to continue to share with others, as you now are, so they can also grow in life. As you see with clarity, you will see things that you thought were dreams in your mind, actually were visions within your spirit, and you will see them, and live them, as they come to fruition.


    These are five words the Lord gave me a number of years ago, for everyone’s life, that I wrote an item on. In abbreviated form it is:
    –God has a PURPOSE for everyone’s life.
    –God has the PLAN to see His PURPOSE fulfilled in each life.
    –God instills in each person the POTENTIAL to live His PLAN for His PURPOSE.
    –God is the POWER and gives the POWER for the POTENTIAL to be reached, & His PLAN completed
    for His PURPOSE
    –God’s PROVISION in all things is all we need, for His PURPOSE for each person, to be completed
    according to His PLAN, because He placed the POTENTIAL in each, which can be reached in His

    I see this process has started in you Eric, and in God’s timing and power is continuing.

    God’s Blessings.
