Ways You Can Turn Your Life Around

Has your life spiraled out of control because of many bad decisions you have made in the past? Do you think that you are currently in a hopeless situation and there is no way for you to get your life back to the way it was before? If this is the case, there is no reason for you to lose hope. There are a number of things that you can do to put your life back together again. It will take some time and a great deal of dedication on your part. However, you will succeed if you are truly committed to changing your life for the better. Here are a few of the things you can do to begin the process of returning your life to normal.

  1. Enter a treatment program if you have been abusing drugs or alcohol.

Drugs and alcohol have destroyed countless lives. They have caused people to lose their money, jobs and families. They have also resulted in the deaths of many people who have become addicted and unable to kick their habit. You might have a drug or alcohol problem that you have been struggling with for quite some time. You need to seek professional help. The likelihood of you being able to kick your habit on your own is very small. You need to check yourself into a rehab facility where you can be surrounded by doctors and highly trained counselors who will do everything they can to help you stop using.

  1. Begin the process of receiving a pardon for your criminal conviction.

Were you convicted of a crime? Having a criminal record can destroy your life in so many ways. It can haunt you when you are applying for a job or trying to enroll at a college. It can even ruin your relationship if your partner discovers a criminal conviction that you have not disclosed. However, you do not have to live with your criminal conviction for the rest of your life. There is a process whereby you can apply   to have your criminal conviction removed from the public database where it could be potentially viewed by employers, schools, private investigators or people you are in a relationship with. The conviction will stay on your record. However, nobody will be able to see it if a background check is performed. It will be erased for all intents and purposes. There are several companies that specializes in facilitating the process that you must go through in order to receive a pardon for a criminal conviction. You can learn more here about a company that can help you during the pardon application process.

  1. Volunteer your time to various charitable organizations.

You will discover the great feeling you get from giving back to the community you live in. There are many different charities that will accept your help as a volunteer. Do you have a particular skill? If so, call your local charities and find out which ones will be the best fit for you.

  1. Contact the people you have wronged in the past and apologize to them.

You might have hurt a lot of people in your life with your destructive behavior. You need to reach out to these people and let them know you are truly sorry for your actions. Getting forgiveness from these people will help you to bring closure to that part of your life. This is an important step towards being able to move forward.

  1. Find a good psychiatrist and begin to attend therapy on a regular basis.

A skilled therapist will be able to get to the root causes of your destructive behavior. You will then be able to have a better understanding of why you have made so many bad decisions. Going to therapy can help you to eliminate many of the fears that have been preventing you from achieving what you are capable of.

  1. Eliminate all negative influences from your life.

You might have certain people who have persuaded you to do drugs, consume too much alcohol or do other destructive activities. You need to cut these people out of your life forever.

Nokia Lumia 520 deflects a bullet to save police officer’s life


The world’s most popular Windows Phone turned into a life saver for a police man in Sao Paulo, Brazil where a couple of robbers opened fire at him in his house. The Lumia 520, which was sitting in his back pocket took a bullet, and in the end saved his life, and literally his behind too. Nokia, being known for its build quality, will certainly take this as a positive result, but we are sure any phone would have done the same.

This happened in broad daylight, when the military police officer, aged 24 was just returning to his home with his uniform in hands, as he was off duty and wanted to wash it at this home. As he entered the house where his family members were held hostage, the two criminals opened fire, seeing his uniform. They reportedly fired two shots, once the officer began to flee, and one of them hit his buttocks, with the Lumia 520 taking that hit and the other shot reportedly hit the neighbour’s gate. While the criminals fled the scene, the officer returned to find that the pair took off a lot of valuables.

The story is not entirely rosy when you consider that the theft happened nevertheless, but the police officer must have been relieved to have his life intact. Another story of how technology can save lives, or is it? Let us know what you think, in the comments section below.
