My Identity


3 years ago today, this photo was my Facebook profile picture.

I was part of the mug club and my literal identity was dominated by that frothy liquid that filled mug #290.

Today I have a new profile picture and a new identity.


Today my profile picture is a smiley face with a blindfold that reads “the Unemployed Alcoholic,” which reminds me to never let my circumstances blind me to the joy and laughter that is all around.

Today I help people laugh while highlighting recovery from a Christian perspective.

Today I am healed. I am forgiven. I am loved.

Today I am a husband, a father, a friend.

Today I am a child of God.

Today I am sober — 2 years, 9 months, 23 days sober.
