Sober Mind. Clean Heart.

Yesterday was my 8 month anniversary of seeking help in the form of therapy, rehab and turning my life over to God.

I also decided to roll up my sleeves and face recovery head-on. No more lies. No more hiding. No more internalizing. No more burnout. No more partying. No more self-destruction.

My (now) wife became my biggest supporter, who also happened to be the person I hurt the most (outside of myself).

It’s been 8 months with a sober mind and a clean heart.”

Yeah, that’s cool and all bro, but it’s only been 8 months.”


It has only been 8 months. I am aware that I have a lifetime to go. But that’s also my point. It has only taken me 8 months to completely change my life around.

Imagine what the rest of my life, our lives, will look like.

I’m surrounded by an amazing wife, two sets of families, friends, colleagues and those working with me professionally (therapy, group, church).

I don’t need thanks. I don’t need congratulations. I don’t need anything.

We get one life. Until it’s over. There’s only so many opportunities to fill the in-between with love, self-care and experiences.

Life, death, and everything in between.
