Hey Everyone! Here in Brampton, Ontario it is 7:11pm. I am utterly exhausted, but now finally relaxed. Today was great at work! We had our annual Awake conference and I got to MC the event as well as share my story. The conference was for different high schools throughout York region, and students participated in workshops such as breakdancing, belly dancing, graffiti, knitting and poetry. It was a busy busy day and I have been up since about 5:30am. The conference was held at a church in Newmarket and there were also different agency booths and cool stuff. We had a band of cops perform called ‘Rock for Cops’ lol they were really good and Lots of good stuff around harm reduction. It is unreal how therapeutic my job is for me. I remember one time feeling so purposeless, and now I see purpose all around me. I feel God and feel guided in the right direction. To help others through my own experience with hardships makes me feel happy. It shows there is a silver lining, and that there is always hope.
Always remember you are not stuck, and you are stronger than you think you are.
