I'm Nelson. Thank you for taking the time to look at my profile. I'm grateful for the opportunity to reach out to the free world. Being in prison is a humbling experience, but it's also a time to reflect on the mistakes that I made and know that when my second chance comes I will take every opportunity to stay on the right path.
I ask that you would pray that God will continue to keep me safe and that He will continue to guide me with a positive way of thinking. I have learned so much about patience and compassion since my incarceration.
I'm blessed to have a great prison job. Helping other inmates design leather pocketbooks, wallets and children book bags. I'm telling you the truth, you should see some of these bags that the inmates make - it's unreal. All this locked up talent.
The beginning of my journey was hard. I started at a violent and rough prison, but by God's grace and my good behavior I earned a spot at a more laid back prison. What I know for a fact is, if you believe in change it will happen. When I got to this new prison I saw how much I matured; from thinking I was a man to knowing finally I became one.
It's something how the hardest situation brings out the best results. Before prison I was materialistic, egotistical and self-centered. I had a childish mind. I don't think any human like that is ever truly happy. There was always a void. Love, sympathy, compassion and being sensitive to others needs. That's what makes us human. First and foremost believe in yourself, don't let anyone get in the way of your dreams and aspirations.
I created this profile because I'm seeking friendship from positive people. I don't have much time left here and I can't wait to go fishing. I also have been excited about skydiving and cliff hanging. I workout a lot so I'm big on physical and mental health.
I got this Maroon 5 album, songs about Jane playing in my ear on my MP3 player. I had no idea they were so good. But when you are locked away so long all you want to do is live and enjoy life. At least that's how I feel. I want to travel when I get out around the world.
I have also been paying attention to these surge cities. Does anyone have any suggestions on the best places to prosper when I get out? Trump passed the Prison Reform bill so I get out in 2021. It's getting close and I want to be well prepared.
Let me be clear, I'm not looking for someone to send me funds and I'm not looking to take advantage of anyone. I'm looking for positive pen pal friendships. I despise people that lie, cheat, steal and take advantage of others. It's pathetic! I see it every day in here. So I don't want you to be hesitant to contact me because you think it will be like that. It won't!!
I picked up the hobby of writing and have been thinking a lot about starting a blog. Does anyone have any suggestions, points or tips on creating a successful blog? If so, send me some ideas.
What I would like to know is what's the world really like now? Because in here we only know from the news point of view, which always looks chaotic. What is really going on out there?
I leave you with that until next time. Thank you for visiting my profile.
