“Remain positive and keep going after your goals. Keep doing the right thing, even when nobody is looking.  As a matter of fact, I’m going on eight years sober. So, I came from nothing.

As long as you have people continuously helping and praying for you, keep working towards your goals, no matter where you’re at, where you live, or how you grew up.   I was the only child, so I wasn’t raise like that.

So, that started the effect of me thinking that I was grown. One thing led to another.   The most blessed moment is when I found and started loving myself right in the midst of and in spite of.” - Bridget, Algonquin
