LIFE CHANGES

I came to prison in 2010 and had a decision to make: waste away for 10 years, continuing down a path of self-destruction, destroying relationships and hurting the people that I love or use that time to accept where I was, look deep into my soul, identify and learn from my past mistakes and flawed thinking and steer my life in a positive direction forever. It’s 7 years later and I thank God that I chose to change my life and learn to help others in need instead of wasting away. I started my transformation by thinking of and helping others. I spent 5 years working in the prison infirmary learning to help others in need of daily care. This was challenging and rewarding at the same time. I am now a full time hearing helper for a friend of mine. I also donate my time as part of the prison hospice program. Nobody deserves to die alone. Every day I reflect upon what led to my failures in my life and what I should have done differently, so that it never happens again. With God’s word and thought, I have a good foundation to build a new life by the renewing of my mind and healing from the inside out. I want people to see the new person I am. When the time is right, I hope to have the opportunity to heal broken relationships from my past.

FIVE THINGS

Five things I took for granted… I have been in prison for a little over seven years. It has been a very long road. In three years, I will be walking out the prison gate as a free man. There are many things I took for granted while I was free. The following is the top five things I took for granted. 1. Spending time with family: prison made me cherish visits, phone calls, and letters. 2. Food: eating when and what I want. A fresh salad, juicy steak, pizza, or a bowl of soup sound very good. 3. Sleep: sleeping in a dark, quiet room on a warm, comfortable bed. 4. Outdoors: going for a walk, camping, fishing, and sightseeing. 5. Relationships: giving and receiving love and affection. Having a deep, meaningful connection. There you have it. The top five things I took for granted when I was free. This is just five of a very long list. I hope this gives you some insight on my life. If you'd like to discuss this, or anything else, write to me! You can also go to www.gettingout.com and send me a message. I hope to your from you soon.
