That's actually a very powerful tool - faking it till ya make it. When you act confident, next thing you know you are feeling more confident and no longer have to fake it.
I am faking it today. I have a lot going on including a job interview! I'll let you know how it goes later.
Got a call from Anthony last night at midnight. He had court yesterday and was looking at 5 years in prison for violating parole: missing appointments, possession of heroin and paraphernalia, possession of an RX that was not his. BUT, in reviewing his huge file they noticed that he had never been offered any type of court mandated drug program. The judge gave him One Last Chance and put him on Prop 36. So if he messes this up he's looking at a loooooooooooooooong time behind bars.
I won't even get into my thoughts on drug offenders getting five years when rapists sometimes get less...I'll save that for my post on Luke Whyte and Voices of Justice. That post will be coming up soon.
I told Ant that the only way I can be in his life is if it does not involve Kels or Kev. I will not help him, give him money, give him rides, give him jack crap. I will only give him honesty and a listening ear. I will not even give him encouragement or advice. I've done all that, it obviously didn't do much. I wanted to walk away from him, but I'll be there for the next few months until he lands himself back in prison. And, if by some miracle that doesn't happen, it will be nice to see him succeed.
I didn't talk to Keven yesterday but am hoping he's doing better.
To all my fellow Irish friends (and those who love an excuse to party)
Question: What nationality are you?
I'm French Canadian / Irish.
Peace, Hope and Love, Barbara
