Lift Your Spirit

Today is my 31st birthday

Today is my 31st birthday.

By O. R. Marv

So….on this day…what can I say is my biggest accomplishment thus far in my life?

That’s easy.

But before I tell you what that accomplishment is…let me tell you what isn’t my biggest accomplishment.

It isn’t graduating high school with honors.

It isn’t earning a B.S. in Kinesiology from Sonoma State University.

It isn’t working in the physical therapy field for over 4 years at a top rated therapy department in the entire nation.

It isn’t running a YMCA or all the years being a head trainer in a gym.

It isn’t getting accepted into a Doctorate of Physical Therapy program at the #1 rated program in the nation.

It isn’t having the courage to quit corporate America and start my own business as an entrepreneur.

No.

My biggest accomplishment is getting and staying clean and sober and finding TRUE recovery.

THAT is my biggest accomplishment!

Doing so gave me the potential to live a life I can be proud of.

It gave me a relationship with Higher Power, my family, and most importantly MYSELF.

I pray that you find all the gifts I’ve been given in my Recovery.

Work it ‘cause you’re worth it.

If I can do it, so can you!
