You know I love superheroes. I literally want to base my life around them. Today, I want to take it back to basics and look at my super heroic life moving forward. It has been a long journey already even within these almost seven months. I have become a new me, and the journey only continues.
When I first started this blog, I was in a pretty horrible place mentally. I had just quit my job. I was heading to another one which was a wonderful transition job. Even though I knew that my drinking was a problem, I made absolutely no real movement forward to change that. I was making about the same amount of money switching jobs, but I was still spending it like it was going out of style. I had started to do something I love in terms of my novel and this blog, but I had not really made a positive commitment to my future.
Looking at my present, I could not be in a better place. I have a strong friend group who promotes optimism and healthy living. When I moved here, I wanted to work at a gay bar, and although I thought I would be working in New York, I found my home at the new gay bar here in Jersey City. My drinking has changed completely, and it’s something I just don’t need in my life. Money is no real issue. I make money. I live my life. I am starting a new queer culture blog for Jersey City, working with Hudson Pride Center, and editing my novel. That positive commitment to my future has officially been made.
So, where do I go from here? My superheroic life continues. I go to the gym almost daily. My body type is almost that of the superheroes that I emulate. With the help of my friends, I have changed my wardrobe to fit my new life. I have begun to once again post here, edit my novel, and do some work on my InquisiQueer blog on a daily basis. I am also working Hudson Pride Center wherever I can.
I can always strive to do better. I can change my diet to work really well for my exercise schedule. I am learning how to edit a little bit everyday with my friend readin things over and breaking it down. I still have a lot to learn when it comes to bartending, and although my finances are fine, I have an expensive future ahead of me that I know I am going to achieve with commitment to being better. Each day, I get a little bit closer, but it’s always good to check back at where you started and give yourself a recharge to move forward better than ever.
