“I used to be the guy who asked ‘where do you want to go next’ when out late drinking. Now I’m the guy who asks his wife ‘are we going home soon’ when out after ten.”
I got my year book out the other day, and as I was looking at the pictures of my former classmates, some of who are gone now, I began to feel sad. Besides the nostalgia I felt, my little trip down memory lane made me realize even more how precious time is.
As some of you know, after high school was over I spent a lot of time drinking and wasting precious moments of my life. But the good news is that I’ve been sober for close to fourteen years now, and over that time, I learned how to make each day the best I can.
Time has gone by quickly since high school. And although I wasted a lot of years drinking, I made up for it in the years I’ve been sober. I used that time to find greater happiness in life and help others realize two important things. That they too can be happy without a drug and enjoy the time they have here, even when they’re sad.
