I got my yearbook 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.
