Summary things have changed since I was first arrested. I had zero direction in my life, I was moving backward instead of forward, I was near death, actually walking dead, and now I’m born again. I want success in my life that I’m striving for. I want the love and trust of my family and friends, and now I’m taking the necessary steps to get that back. When I first came to terms with their repercussions of my crime, realizing I was about to serve some years in prison, I told myself I was going to take advantage of my time by getting a bunch of tattoos all over my arms and chest, get big and muscular, and drink a lot of hooch, smoke a bunch of weed. Now I have a new direction with goals and focus completely on a better future for myself and my family upon release. I decided not to get a single tattoo, or have a single sip of alcohol or take of weed, or other drugs. I no longer just want to be a big and muscular person, I want to be healthy and fit, so I can live a longer more fulfilling life. My goals, my decisions, and everything I do supersede these prison walls. My sobriety has allowed me to mature, to grow up, and understand what’s most important in life, love, family, trust, respect, integrity, honesty and the many other morals and values that make the quality of life worth living.
