The first day of the rest of my life - Journal

Postby FocusOnDreams » Tue Mar 17, 2020 1:49 am

There's was a time in my life where I hit absolute rock bottom. Bankrupt, addict, loser, desperate. It took many years to overcome that. Today I am married with a child and created an abundant life. But something happened not too long ago. Something happened that put my life into a completely different dimension.

Lost my job, lost a lot of money, personal issues arose. So what did I do? I went back to my dark days. I used drugs, alcohol and pornography. I've been sulking like a little bitch for the past month.

But no more. I have a family I must provide for. I've decided to start the journey all over again but this time more intelligently. I've accumulated a vast amount of knowledge and resources over the years. This time it's different. It's do or die. I am putting my family at risk if I continue down this path.

At one time or another we all come to a point in our lives where we can no longer look back. I am here.

So...no actual plan...just words you typed on a screen that temporarily made you feel good and gave you a false sense of taking action.

I sort of wondered when I saw the username that you had chosen "FocusOnDreams". You didn't choose "FocusOnFamily" or "FocusOnCareer". Instead, you picked a broad, ill-defined concept that doesn't actually commit you to anything. A dream isn't "do or die".

My advice, if you want to deal with whatever underlying issues you are facing, is to focus on things other than your dreams. Focus on actual, concrete steps that you can take to improve the situation for your family. This means your dreams might need to be put aside for a little while until you get the rest of your life back on track. Then you can play around with dreams.
