This week marked ten years that I was released from prison on June 8, 2004, after serving nearly six years for robbery, which was based on my past addictions to alcohol, drugs and gambling.
Although I have done many good things over this time, such as writing my book, “Jew in Jail,” and delivering motivational & inspirational speeches to help other addicts in recovery or anyone not living up to their full potential, I am also very aware of the fact that I continue to make mistakes, and, therefore, will always be a work in progress.
But that is fine with me.
I realize that change doesn’t occur overnight, or even over a ten year span, and am prepared to work even harder than ever before in order to be the best possible person I can be.
Life definitely is a learning process, and by continuing to read, write, speak, and go to meetings to hear others share their messages, it will enable me to become what I strive for, which is a man people call genuine, helpful, humble, and someone to look up to.
I know there will always be bumps along the way, but with great friends, and readers like you at my side, we can help each other make it in this crazy worlds of ours!
I hope this summer is the best one you will ever experience, and look forward to the great feedback and comments you always provide, either here on my blog, in person, via email, or through my website, http://www.jewinjail.com/.
