14 Days and Counting

Got a lot off my chest yesterday on this blog, and I feel a lot better about life in general. After I wrote what I wrote, I took a long walk with Tank and talked out loud to my biological dad. I told I will own this pain, not him. I am in control, and my family, friends, and life are bigger and more important than what he did to me. I also told him to eff off. Sure there will be days when I don't feel right, but acknowledging and accepting the past will help me to eventually move on to better days. It is a start, and I am ready for the journey. Plus, this little dude below makes me want to be a helluva Dad, a great husband, and a good dude.




I will persevere. I will keep moving forward. I will be the stream.

Trust me, you'll make it. In fourteen more days you'll be on such a high we'll have to take it in turns to bring you back to earth.

I'm glad to read that. Sometimes the best thing to do is let things go, but on your own terms.
And be sure to show Kyle that picture when he doesn't want to mow the lawn in about 12 years.

That's a good thing you did. Breaking the cycle of negative thoughts is your way to healing and feeling better.

Try to get some sleep too. You're gonna need it, man!

Oh, and GO CARDINALS!!!!
