Where have I been?

in #life3 years ago (edited)

Hello Steemit,

I have been gone from posting for a year. I want to let you all know where I have been. To quote Charles Dickens, "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of light, it was the season of darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair." (Tale of Two Cities).

First off, I got married to the most wonderful women in the world. She is perfect for me, fit, smart, beautiful, and genuine. Second I also got fired from work right after I got married. It was so tough figuring out how to support my wife and me and the children without a job. My whole world fell in upon me and I lost a lot of confidence that I once had. It was the hardest year of my life because I have never been fired. It took time, but I was able to land a good job about six months after being fired. My wife was more supportive than I could every imagine. I know we will be together forever, because If she endure the financial difficulties we had with unconditional love and support, I know I want nothing more than to be with her forever.

I just want to tell Steemit that I am back in life! I am ready to post again, and I am hopeful about the future. My confidence is back. I have started buying pm's again and bitcoin again now that I am employed. I look forward to posting new pictures of precious metal purchases like I used to. I am excited about the future and hope that some of my followers are still around. We have 100 days for the bitcoin reward to be cut in half for miners. I am excited about what the future holds. I went through a dark time but now there is light. Thank Steemit for all the support.

I have been humbled by my experience and have grown so much stronger having to operate in survival mode. If anyone is having a very hard time in life, pm me and I will gladly listen. Life can get rough, but things can get better with work. I am blessed to have a good wife at my side.
