My Life – Mistakes and Blessings

The topic for this paper is “Some event in life that happened to me”. Unfortunately what comes to mind and had the biggest impact on my life isn’t necessarily a flattering story. Although this story isn’t flattering, it’s probably the best thing that ever happened to me.

At the time I had no clue how life changing this event would be or that I would eventually look back at it as being a major turning point in my life. This event had such an impact on who I am today, I am truly grateful that it happened. As I sit here and think back, it’s hard to believe that it’s been almost 8 years. It’s been 8 years since I realized I had to grow up.

While it started in my teen years, I don’t feel it really became a problem till my 20s. At the time I didn’t think I had a problem.

I was just having fun and could stop anytime I wanted to. The main problem was I was having so much fun, I didn’t want to stop. I was well known everywhere I went. People loved me.

Even if they didn’t know me personally, they knew my name.It was never really a party till I walked in. I felt like a celebrity. That’s probably why I never seen anything wrong with it. If I had a problem people wouldn’t like me, I wouldn’t have a good job, and someone would say something, right? Someone did finally say something, The Honorable Judge Michael A. Paul. With all the drinking and partying I was doing it was hard to find a designated driver.

When I first started, I would try to find someone to drive me or someone to drop me off and come pick me up, but after a while it was just easier to drive myself.
