The Charlois Life

Living the Charlois life is not easy, but it does have its benefits.  As I wrote last week, I have come a long way, but I still have a long way to go before I reach my goal of being the best version of who I was created to be.  Truth be told, there is joy in working to become better.

I live at the Owingsville Manor Assisted Living home here in Owingsville, Kentucky.  There are two sides to living here.  The first is, this place saved my life, literally.  Without the stability that it offers and the care we receive, I don’t know if I would have been able to survive long enough to make the progress I’ve made.  That is the first side; I still believe this is the best place for me right now.

The other side is, it is depressing at times.  For some reason most of the residents here have given up the idea that their lives could be better, so, they don’t try to get better.  They just exist, waiting to die.  This can be very hard to deal with, being the type of person who never wants to give up.  Therefore, sometimes the atmosphere is less than ideal for my goals.  But I am doing the best I can.

Which brings me to my point.  Living the Charlois Life is not easy but we can never give up, because it can be better.

God bless, and happy journeys.
