Steven Dybvad – Personal Journal – March 1, 2013

Friday, March 1, 2013.

A major burden has just been lifted from my shoulders. The Sgt. was surprisingly quick to throw out my ticket. After listening to my well-thought-out speech and reviewing my clean behavior record on the computer. If it wasn’t for my lifestyle, clean record, and daily practice of holding myself accountable to the straight a program, getting out of this ticket would have been impossible. I continue to hold myself to a high standard of living, and it’s paying off in so many different ways and shapes in my life. I continue to remember and be thankful for my loving family and strong, unwavering supportive group of people, friends, and mentors.

I’ve spent more than a week working on drawing for Gretchen and I’m finally finished. I’m going to mail it out to her, along with some words of encouragement. I sense that she’s going through some personal problems and I want her to know that she can lean on me and I’ll always be here to comfort her as much as I can from inside prison. Two years of sobriety and many accumulative life changes and decisions have taught me to once again love and care for others unconditionally. Gretchen has gone out of her way to show me her unconditional love and support through good, bad, thick and thin, Gretchen has even gone out of her way to show love and support to my daughter, Caitlin, being a very important, healthy, positive role model in her life. Thank you Gretchen, I will love you always.
