The Past, Present, and Future
I have a lot of regrets. One especially that is bothering me lately is my decision to quit high school. I see these posts from all my friends and hear them talking so excitedly about homecoming and graduation and so forth. I can't experience that. However, if I cling to my past, how am I to move forward in the future? Through my experience, and the experience, strength, and hope of others, I have learned to let go of the past and focus not on the distant future, but today. I know that today I am glad to be the place I am. I am grateful. I was considering attending GHS's homecoming game tonight, but an opportunity presented itself for me to chair the Gardendale NA meeting tonight. My first time! So, naturally, I decided that high school is in my past. I need to let go of it, and cling to what I have today, which is Narcotics Anonymous, my new friends, and my family. Thank you.
