I am just a guy, a normal, boring guy that has been through addiction, depression and a multitude of other struggles common to the human condition.

For decades, I lived life trying to survive my faults and flaws.  The results were less than stellar.

Today, I embrace those issues of my past and my present and use them to make a better future.  Through the help of God, friends and family, I am learning to live on top of the things that once crushed me.  I fail often but I do not take up residence in those failures the way I once did.  Failure is part of the journey to success.

These pages bear my thoughts as I reflect on and accept the challenges before and find hope where once was despair.

Thanks for reading,

Mike Ridenour
