I sat with a man today who looked sad.
He said he was getting out in about 12 months. I was happy for him. But he was depressed because he said he had nothing waiting for him when he would be released.
I asked him why he was sad when he should be excited. He looked at me strangely.
I told him when I get out I will have nothing.
I will be homeless and penniless.
All I will have is a suitcase and some clothes.
And I told him how excited I was! Think about it. I said, “You are being given a second chance. A clean slate to start over. A do over for your life. A blank canvas where you can create whatever you want for your future”.
He looked perplexed.
I told him to think about it. I am sure he will.
Think about YOUR life…it is what YOU MAKE it to be and choose it to be.
I am EXCITED about the future…like a little kid! And it matters not if I am here 1 year or 20 years. Whenever I get out, I will be stronger.
Are YOU thinking like this?
You should. Go for your dreams!
