Hitting bottom is both the best of times and the worst of times. No one wants to experience the pain, suffering and consequences of hitting bottom. However, it is at this point when we come to realize that what you were doing yesterday is no longer working for you today, and it’s time to try something different. This represents the first time, or first time in a long time that you are no longer willing to live as you 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 want to go.
