The rain outside is peaceful. In Georgia, there has been a severe shortage of rain in the past few months. In myself, there has been a severe shortage of several things. Happiness, laughter, sleep, comfort, safety, calmness, inspiration, concentration. There is a greater need for all of these things. Christmas lights glisten against the concrete. They are welcoming, and they are attractive. They portray a false sense of optimism, joy, and cheer. There is a sickness inside of me that is preventing me from experiencing any of this.

People look at the lights and they have no thought whatsoever of the people who have placed them there. There are people behind those lights. There are souls, there are emotions, there are interactions, and there are feelings. read more]

"Once I can get past the obstacles I am currently dealing with, I feel as if there is an entirely new "me" to experience. So much love to give. So much laughter to share. An endless amount of memories to make. Countless faces and places to be a part of. I am over being a small town nothing. I am done with that. I am ready. I will be rescued."

Beautiful. The mere fact that you can see this and embrace it gives so much hope for us all as human beings. The light is there, you just have to do whatever it is you are willing to do to reach it. Just know that you are far from alone.

Don't let the lack of "life" (for a lack of a better word) hold you back from living.

Your optimism touches and inspires me.

After reading a few of your entries it is beyond clear to me that you are going through something more difficult then even my darkest days have seen. Despite these difficult times, I can see, just in the way that you express yourself, that you are going to get through it all and be ok.

I wish you the best and hope that you have a safe and happy holiday season.

You're a great guy, Joe. I enjoy reading what you have to say. You and I think pretty similarly, and I've been going through a lot of the same motions you have. You've just gotta find life. It's not always gonna seek you out. So, take a bit of comfort in knowing that at least one other person is trying to find their way in the world.

The New Year is almost here, and I'm excited. I'm gonna live.

It's amazing how much I can read your blog posts and think that it was something I had written myself. The best thing to remember is one day, all of this shit will make sense man.
