“Pay attention as much as possible. We spend a lot of time doing what we need to do without really attending what’s going on around us. I think your life could be different if you practice being present.”

“It was bad. Several people confronted me and told me I had a problem. I’ve been dealing with alcoholism since I was 13.”
“How did you eventually overcome this?”
“I think I beat the shit out of myself enough until I didn’t want to deal with all the baggage anymore. I’ve really learned that you’ll give up something when you are ready. If you’re not, you’ll hold onto it.”

“What has been one of your more trying moments in life?”
“Having ALS is by far the most trying because I am becoming a prisoner in my own body.” “Her mind does not change, but her physical body does. She is loosing her voice. She has lost her arms, and most of her leg movements. It will keep progressing. There is no cure.”
“With that said, I just look at it as I’m faced with a bigger challenge. I’m living, and not dying.”
