Juice Cleanse Detox, 31 of 40 Days – Yeah I Used to Party
Yeah I used to party like that! That’s what was running through my head earlier today as I sat rooftop of the “W Residency” connected to the “W Hotel” in the heart of Hollywood. There I was soaking up some vitamin D (sunlight), with friend and fellow creative Michael Mattuci, writing a script for a film depicting my former life as a wild-and-out clubber, dj, promoter, drug abuser, womanizer, etc.
It was fitting and synchronistic that just a few yards away, a typical day in the life for me just some 5-6 years ago was right there in front of my eyes screaming out… look at how far you’ve come! I couldn’t help but grin from ear to ear proud of myself for how far I have come and how much I have grown and matured.
This amazing feeling mixed with a little nostalgia wasn’t fueled by me judging the people below partying, rather it was a simple acknowledgement to myself that I am a much stronger, secure and loving person. I understand everyone has to live their life the way they choose and it is up to each individual how to play out the karmic deck of cards given at birth.
I find myself in a constant state of gratitude having really been lost in a black hole of drugs and alcohol, it’s so hard to believe I made it out sometimes. I know beyond any doubt there are forces unseen watching over me and have helped me along the way. Of course I also have to attribute my sobriety and transition into a conscious lifestyle to the unconditional love and support of my family.
A big part of the reason I’m doing the work I’m doing now, propagating positivity, wellness, consciousness around food, etc., is because I have been down the darkest roads, lived in misery and in pulling myself out of it, I know anyone else can do it too. There isn’t a hole too deep or a situation too dire that one can’t make new choices in life to completely manifest a new reality.
I am living proof that when one begins to do the work internally and makes the decision to change, the Universe will oblige with so much support. This universal truth and phenomenon is hard to put into words but unmistakable when the magic begins to unfold.
What a blessing it is to be living here in Los Angeles (the city of angels) coming into the grace and fullness of my own magic. What an adventure it is to be alive and conscious on planet Earth at this particular time, a time of tremendous technological advancement and spiritual awakening!
Damn it’s good to be ALIVE!!!
May we all find our purpose in life and may we all have the courage to pursue what brings us the most joy, love and happiness.
Peace and love to you all.
