Happy Anniversary To Me

My anniversary was actually back on September the 11th, but it is such a weird day to celebrate a milestone.  However, it will be hard to forget my anniversary since it is associated to such a day.

Anyhow, what anniversary am I speaking about you ask?  Well, it has been 2 years that I have been sober. Yippee!

Some people may ask why I am announcing this for everyone to see.  Understood.  But understand this:  it is something I am very proud of and something that I have worked hard at accomplishing.  I say, if you are proud of an accomplishment and hard work, show it off to the world.  I have no reason to be ashamed.

In the last two years, I have enjoyed life so much more.  More importantly, I feel that I have been “there” for my family, especially for my daughter who is growing up and needs a dad.

Aside from certain people and groups of people, photography has actually helped me in keeping sober these past two years.

I want to thank first and foremost my wife, who has been there by my side, supporting me and never giving up on me.  I want to thank my daughter for being so loving towards me.  I also want to thank my friend Jaan.  He has been there to help me along the way whenever I needed to talk to someone.  I thank God as well, for giving me the strength and courage to go this far.

I am very grateful for being sober today and I am grateful for having found such a wonderful past-time, photography.
