My buddy said something to me yesterday. He said "You're glowing bro..it's about damn time!" It took him pointing it out for me to appreciate how great I feel after all the changes I've made in my life.
Stay strong and remain kind! I allowed anger and resentments of the arrogant to take my kindness from me. I'm just now learning to regain that inside me. Which, makes me a much better version of me and the real me! Never allow anyone to dull your shine!
