I would say my turning point in life was when I decided to start living for myself and not for anyone else. Up until that point, I had been living for others and doing what they wanted me to do. But after I made that decision, I started to feel more alive and like I had control over my life again. I started to explore new things and meet new people, and I discovered that I had a lot of passion and talent that I never knew existed. I started to see life as an opportunity to do something great, and not a burden to be carried. I’m glad I made that decision, because it has led to a life full of happiness and fulfillment.

There is no definitive answer to this question as everyone’s life is unique and shaped by different experiences and turning points. However, for me, one of the most defining moments in my life came when I was 15 years old and I was diagnosed with leukemia. Up until that point, I had always thought of myself as a healthy, athletic young girl who was immune to all sorts of illnesses. But when I was told that I had leukemia, I was completely devastated. I was scared and didn’t know what to do. My family and friends were there for me throughout my treatment and I am truly grateful for that. The experience taught me a lot about myself and about the strength of family and friendships. It also forced me to re-evaluate my priorities and to take stock of what is truly important in life. Without a doubt, my diagnosis was the turning point in my life and it changed everything for the better.
I was sitting in the hospital, being told there was a chance I’d lose my leg. I had just experienced a heroin overdose and had been found hours later, laying on my back with my leg bent at the knee, tucking my entire calf under the dead weight of my body. There had been zero blood flow to my leg for hours and the tissue had began to die. Two months before that I had lost my off/on girlfriend of 12 years/mother to my 8 year old daughter to an overdose. Her and I had struggled off and on with addiction for many years, and she had lost her battle due to the same drug that once again had its grip on me. We had fallen into drug use at a young age, and it crippled our development. It would seem we were better than everything would come crashing down again. When it comes to addiction, all that’s rational goes out the window. Its embarrassing now to even say this, but I knew I had a beautiful daughter who needed me and that wasn’t enough to prevent me from almost dying the same way her mother just had.
My hospital stay/leg
This is a photo of her mother and I when we were 15 years old.
Us at 18 years old
This is when our daughter was born. First day back from the hospital.
Then some more of the three of us.
I spent about a month in the hospital. Contemplating everything. I remember feeling so broken that I didn’t want to leave. I didn’t want to go back to my reality. I went through seven surgeries, was in intense physical pain, as well as the even more excruciating emotional pain. I was disgusted with myself in every way imaginable. I remembered reading about a theory in which the universe is forever expanding then condensing. The big bang happens an infinite number of times and everything happens again and again in the exact same way. I imagined the life I was living happening an infinite number of times. I felt tortured by the thought. At some point in that stay at the hospital I gained some clarity. I knew that it was all of my bad choices that led me to be such a weak and shameful man. Physically I needed to relearn how to walk again, and in a way it was a metaphor. I didn’t know how exactly I was going to do it, but I knew that the day would come where I would look back at my current predicament as a catalyst. I knew that somehow I was going to turn things around, despite what seemed like insurmountable odds.
From a walker, to crutches, to a cane, to being back on my feet. I started living out each day with a new integrity. I was going to bounce back and be the strongest most resilient version of myself. I imagined life being a video game, and in each game we get to choose our character. I had a vision of exactly what I wanted my character to be and chased it. Every morning we wake up we have the choice of who we want to be. I ran with it. I wanted every single one of my actions to match up with this character I was creating in my head. I developed discipline. I was honest in my words and my actions reflected the words that left my lips. I began religiously going to the gym. I worked my ass off everyday. I began reading and learning about every topic I could. I wanted to be able to articulate and defend every belief I held. I wanted knowledge, to understand as much as I possibly could. I wanted to make sure nothing was ever left on the table. My daughter and I were becoming closer than ever. I developed an unshakable confidence. Nothing could slow me down. I did this through taking action, and remaining consistent. I studied all of the greatest minds to ever exist so I could absorb every lesson they had to offer. I became both physically and mentally strong, and undeterred by the trivial BS that holds many people back. The pain from my past had helped motivate me, and I have since left it behind and put in its place the lessons it taught me.
That was 5 years ago. I am still continuing this journey with the same vigor as then. I work two jobs, am still continuing my education online taking two college courses per semester. I am still dedicated to fitness, hitting the gym a minimum of 4x per week. I remain curious, constantly learning every single day. I am drug free. I have since met an incredible girl who I have fallen deeply in love with. Not only does this girl love me, but she also loves my daughter. She is as driven as I am, and together we are building the most beautiful life. I am everything I had always wanted to be. I became the character I had imagined. The best version of myself. The best part is that I’m a constant work in progress.
I went from this
To me today
I found love again
With someone who loves my daughter as if she were her own
And I continue to be the best I can be as I enjoy every single day. I am so damn fortunate to be alive. I don’t go a day without thinking about her mother, and I promise her I won’t let her down.
I hope my experiences can help someone else out there. We are much stronger than we realize. I am grateful to all who helped me get to where I’m at today. Thanks for reading!
