Several of you have written about the 10 best moments of your life (so far).
Here's my list, in chronological order ...
Getting a letter jacket my senior year in high school.
I worked my butt off for this as a sprinter on the track team for 6 years (that includes Junior High School).
Finishing college. Just getting finished. After 4 1/2 years, I was ready to get on with life and away from school.
Having sex with my best friend after we'd known each other for about 10 years. It was better than I ever imagined. And we're still friends decades later.
Arriving in London for the first time in 1989. Within two or three hours, I knew that I was where I always should have been. I felt right at home.
I was then home-based from there for the next 5 years.
Meeting Liz in the UK. She became my best friend and was/is the best "ear" I've ever known.
When I moved to Amsterdam in 1993. I had quit my job so I could focus on sex, drugs and beer. At least I had my priorities.
The day I fell in love with Hayden (my partner-in-life). We had only known each other for a week, but I was hooked. And I knew it.
The spiritual awakening I had on September 4, 2003. The following day was my first day of sobriety, 2242 days ago.
October 5, 2003. I was sober for a whole month. Now, I knew I could do this thing.
August 15, 2008. After my Mother's Memorial Service. I had done everything to the very best of my ability with her 3+ year illness through her death.
I felt good about life.
