sometimes i think i forget

10577159_719611681408906_3944110925819016329_n. . . It’s a choice. Everyone is different. Everyone has a different point of no return. We all choose to embrace our healing at a different time, in a different place. None of us have any idea how it will feel, look, sound, or taste. And certainly none of us, big talk notwithstanding, have a freaking clue as to how long this ride on the merry-go-round is going to last.

For me, pretty much the only choice I have the power to make, when all is said and done, is whether I am sincere when I look in the mirror every morning and tell the guy squinting back at me, “I choose not to drink… today.”

About greg w

I believe chocolate in virtually any configuration is the finest dessert in the history of mankind. I believe my wife is the sexiest woman in the world. I believe modern capitalism will never be replaced by a different -- or better -- form of economics. I believe in clutch hitting in baseball. I believe the Kimber 1911 .45 ACP is the finest handgun ever made in America. I believe the Mossberg Flex 500 pump-action 12 gauge shotgun is the best home defense ever made in America. I believe Tom Waits is the best song writer of my generation. I believe unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. I believe in equality for everyone, except reporters and photographers. As CS Lewis once beautifully wrote, I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else. I believe that, on balance, Christianity has done more good for humans than bad. I believe it is better to tell the truth than a lie. I believe it is better to be free than to be a slave. I believe it is better to know than to be ignorant. And I believe if I yell at the TV during a Colts game, they will play better.
