Paradise is not a place, it’s a state of mind

Sure, I know what you’re thinking. It’s easy for me to say that when I live on an island, but before you judge me, just know I haven’t always lived here & I wasn’t always on this journey of self peace & tranquility. Far from it. More like a rickety rollercoaster ride of self sabotage & absolute carnage! Anyway, this amazing view wouldn’t have been given a second look or thought as I went about with my blinkers on in my drug induced, intoxicated state. Now seascapes like this blow my mind…

Before getting clean I didn’t know the concept of gratitude or really appreciate anything in my life. Everything was a fucking drama! Day in & day out, I created personal havoc for myself everywhere I went, & in everything I did. I thought I was badly done to. That the world was transpiring against me. That I was just unlucky as fuck! The naked truth, I was blind sighted by my addictions. I couldn’t see my world was actually falling apart due to my OWN actions, & I had NOBODY to blame but myself! I was going nowhere but downhill in a spiral of self destruction…

In actual fact, SHIT HAPPENS. Everyday. To everyone. The difference is in how you deal with it. If you think the answer to your problems is at the bottom of a wine bottle or that you’ll find a quick fix to your prayers after inhaling a mound of white powder or by guzzling a tub of ice cream in a sugar induced frenzy, let me stop you from wasting anymore time looking…YOU’RE NOT! You’re not going to find anything but more self hatred, & excuses to live a soul destroying life of spiritual suicide…

Since getting clean I have gratitude for EVERYTHING! Living a life of gratitude changes forever how we experience life & the world. Appreciation is the purest vibration that exists on the planet today. It’s a powerful process that shifts your energy & brings more of what you want into your life. Basically, be grateful for what you already have & you will attract more good things! Be a magnet for miracles. If you woke up this morning & are reading this clean & sober, you already are one…

What are you grateful for today?
