Today I’m feeling optimistic because my pros outweigh my cons. I go to the parole board tomorrow at 10:30. I’m blessed to say my field PO is on my side when it comes to me being released. I’ve successfully completed treatment and had a slip on alcohol. I’m still proud of myself for not using meth as I had the opportunity to but chose not to, as I should have chosen not to drink. I have many people rooting for my success and I’m very thankful that I have so much opportunities when I walk out the door tomorrow and I’m going to grasp onto those opportunities until I reach my goal of sober success and educational success. I’m beginning to see my growth as before I didn’t. I know today that I love myself and have hope in my future. I’ve learned that the only thing in my way is myself and that I choose my own destiny.
