On August 22, 2016, this all began to change as I walked through the doors of the Open Door Mission and was accepted into the New Life Recovery Program.
As the days turned into weeks and weeks into months, my desire for a new way of life began to grow. Small hopes soon began to spawn larger goals. In the beginning these goals seemed insurmountable; my mindset was defeated, but not hopeless. The Open Door Mission staff members helped me work through my issues and victim mentality. Once I began to take ownership of my life’s problems, they began to lose their power over me. Progress was made, goals were reached, and I began to dream again.
All that I have gone through to get where I am today is actually a blessing in disguise. My lows groomed me for living out my life’s true purpose. I have lofty dreams these days – dreams full of passion, fueled by a desire to give back and to influence others as positively as I have been influenced. These dreams will take time, dedication, and the help of God to come to fruition. I am determined to make these dreams a reality.
