What was the last experience that positively changed your life?


Here is my story. In 2008, following my wife's death from cancer, I began to drink heavily. A year later I received a DUI. I spent the following two years in a court program called Sobriety Court. It was an awesome experience because of the attitude I had going in. I knew I had a problem and accepted everything the court asked of me as appropriate and reasonable. I did not complain, but complied. At the end of the two years, when I graduated from the program, I was a different person and I remain a different person. I am alcohol free and my life has a spiritual (not religious) base.

    Ann, yours is the first answer and I'm already prepared to choose Best Answer. Grand children. How nice that must be. I have two sons who are really dragging their feet on the subject. I can tell you adore them. They will never forget these days

    liesl5858,That is a very powerful story. Might I suggest you think about writing a hub that describes some of the steps you took that others might find helpful? Thanks for sharing that with us here.

    Gracie, those are difficult experiences, but sometimes those are the ones that make us stronger and teach us much needed lessons. At least that has been my experience.
