Hitting bottom is both the best of times and the worst of times. While no one wants to experience the pain, suffering and consequences of hitting bottom. But it is at this point when we come to realize that what I was doing yesterday is no longer working for me today, and it’s time to do something different. This represents the first time, or first time in a long time when I am no longer willing to live as I have been living. Hitting bottom represents an opportunity to rebuild. Today, I will use my bottom as a motivation to change. I will use my bottom as a reminder of where I have been, as well as a map to where I both want to go, and not want to return.
