Okay. I’ll say it. I like Robert Downey, Jr.
It’s not a man-crush thing. It’s just that I respect this guy.
Years ago he was having a hard time. Years ago he made a few mistakes. Years ago he lost his way.
Some might have given up. Some might have stopped all-together. But those bumps in the road didn’t stop him. Instead, he got help. He turned it around. He moved forward with both his life and his career.
I am grateful for my friend, Bobby (as I like to call him when we’re alone). He is a reminder that even in those times of life when I’m down and out, there is grace and hope. Even when I’ve made poor decisions, when I’ve acted carelessly, when I’ve struggled, I am not necessarily at the end of my rope.
