It’s truly the case that it has been way overdue and a long time coming. I am referring to the way I had been living our life. Life was more of a contest to be won than a journey to be experienced sometimes. That was a truly flawed way to look at my important life. It was also a stupid waste of time. I hate that this perspective was how I was approaching this rare life. I’m lucky to have changed that up for a more holistic approach. The use of legal cannabis has allowed myself and others to turn our old perspective by 168 degrees. Looking back, I now understand just how I ended up feeling as though life was simply an endurance contest. When I left school to start a big career, that was the start of myself and others moving away from a centered approach to life. The magic of life was quickly substituted by demands and the push for constant achievement. Where I once spent a bit of time enjoying recreational cannabis, I could only find time for worry and constant stress. Then, it was off to the races in a downward spiral of failed expectations and literal misery. But it changed when I had a life altering health condition that took me from my job. I found myself willing to confront negativity to have a perspective on life that was based in the positive. Recreational marijuana was at the center of that extremely pivotal time. The long recovery was difficult and took a lot out of me. Yet the legal cannabis and a more holistic perspective were there to pull myself and others along. Now, I have a life that is absolutely worth living for regardless of situational depression.
