Every night, I sit in bed and write in my journal.

I write down various things, such as what I’m grateful for, what the highlight of my day was and what I learnt that day.

Usually, I take a few minutes to do this, and then I fall asleep pretty quickly!

But a few nights ago, I had a very different experience.

As I was writing, I had a realisation that moved me to tears….

It was a moment of celebration in overcoming my addiction, but also a moment of sadness, when I was reflecting on my history of drug use.

I started using drugs when I was just 12 years of age, and having a daughter of my own now, my heart breaks for that young, innocent boy who simply didn’t know any better.

I wanted to chat about it in my video this week, because for me, writing down a few words in my journal made me think about my past in a whole new way, and maybe, just maybe, someone out there will be able to relate.

So here it is…

Thanks for watching and if this has resonated with you in any way, I’d love to hear from you – luke@mpstudio.com.au
