I've been in purgatory working a job that doesn't pay well, but at least they gave me a shot. As of today, I haven't had a drink in seven months. I have regained my balance and remembered my priorities. My wife, kids and home are all that count.
I'm about to start another job that should pay me what I'm worth again. Maybe I've proven that I'm responsible. Maybe I'll be released from purgatory. Does that mean I get to celebrate a little?
I've been thinking about it.
