During my incarceration I’ve learned that a lot of people in here look at their situation as a plate full of misery, drama, pain, loneliness, etc… Basicly everything you can think of that’s negative, and I must admit, in some ways I DEFINITELY agree. I mean who wants to be In here, away from family, missing out on the little time you have left with certain family members, basicly in a hell on earth. Who? I don’t know one person. However the last few years, I’ve been trying to look at this from a different angle. instead of looking at this as a plate of misery, loneliness, and all the other things I said. Instead I can look at this as a plate of Change, a plate of recovery, a plate of expansion, a plate of righteousness. I’ve been gone since I was 18, I’m 24 now. I’ve grew so much, not only physically, but spiritually and mentally. I’m on my way home shortly now, and all I hear from loved ones when I call home or get a visit is how much I’ve changed or “polished up” or matured. I mean obviously if you sit someone down for a number of years its inevitable they change or elevate in some type of way, whether it be for better or worse, change is going to come. Well in my case I’ve changed for the better, and I think my diet is the reason for it. in fact I KNOW my diet is the reason for it. Now when I say diet im not talking about what I’m in here eating, cause anyone who has been in this situation or knows someone who has been knows damn well our menu is far from a 5star meal. but I mean my mental and spiritual diet, the way I look at life overall. instead of falling under the cloud of negativity that comes with this, I focus on the positive. And from that plate of positivity comes the growth of self, growth of love for myself, growth of knowledge. Basicly I’m on a diet from all the bullshit that comes with this place, the bullshit that comes with life period. I only want to eat from the plate of success, the plate of peace, positivity, a plate full of smiles. you know? I wish I could word this better, I’m still kind of new to this blogging thing. overall whoever reads this, what I’m saying is, I know its going to be hard to eliminate all the negativity that comes your way on a daily basis, but just try to change what you let affect you, find the light, no matter how dark times may get, Go on a diet from all the bs, your attitude as well as your spirit/soul will be healthier.
