Doing Time With The Right Mind
Every day that passes I am another day closer to home. No matter how bad my day may be, no matter how much my mind races with anxiety, no matter what, I always keep in mind that I am another day closer to home. We are simply human, mistakes are inevitable. That doesn't mean we need to lose hope or stop trying to be our best selves. It means we pick ourselves up again and give our best effort to do better. It isn't in our blood to give up we must keep striving on with perseverance to be the best that we can be.
We must find something to live for; for me it is a Doctorate Degree I am working towards. I am currently enrolled at Adams State University working every day on my goal. I do the prison correspondence program via snail mail and I enjoy every aspect of my studies. Every assignment I complete is another baby step closer to my goal. Find out what you are living for and I encourage you to start making a step towards your goal every day. For me, I started crawling towards my goal when I was first arrested. Now I am taking baby steps. It doesn't need to be leaps towards your goal just make progress today a priority. It doesn't matter if you make mistakes, we all do.
Pick yourself up and walk towards your goal, or crawl, if you have to.
