The Unsugarcoated Side of Life

How do I preface this video? It begins with tears and ends in tears. The night of day 4 of my crazy challenge threw me a curveball. You get to watch the aftermath of it. The funny thing is I was going to record the video earlier in the day when I was actually very joyful and full of life. Certain things had me postpone it which resulted in a VERY raw and authentic video. But, to be honest, I would not want it any other way. This was how it was supposed to be. The world needs to see real and imperfection. The world needs to see the middle ground you must walk to in order to reach your promised land. I promise to always be authentic in all I say and do. These videos are no exception. You get more truth from me about the real face of recovery in them than I could ever express in just written word. Today's video is the raw part of the process; the part very few want to admit exists...

I am so tempted to apologize for the many tears you are about to see, but that would not be right. Somebody one day will need to see those tears and the pain and know they are not alone in their struggle. One day, it will all be worth it.

Regardless of what it took, I survived day 4 of my 21 day challenge to not look at myself. And as hard as it may be to admit, I am pretty proud of myself.
