Today I realized the benefits and drawbacks of living in an independent living. Saturday here I go I have yet again been reminded of the power of negative energy upon Awakening. My life right now life right now is a double edged sword. I am relearning how to take care of myself on a daily basis. Right now I am cleaning the kitchen after seven tenants which live in one bathroom. What an odd assortment of characters I live with. The fall down drunk, the tweaker, and the guy that is always having a conversation with some entity on a different wavelength. How did I end up here? And more importantly what am I doing to change my life for now and for the future? I am searching for a roommate opportunity in North Park. I did not realize how good I had it living in normal Heights. Everyday I am completing a hygiene routine unrivaled by anything I have done in 10 years. Pease do not live in an independent living at all costs if possible. If you don’t you’ll end up having to completely rebuild your life and start from scratch. I am lucky that I am experiencing life in a way that is so positive. I must look forward and see my future on the horizon and the future looks good.
