Imagine an apartment complex with hundreds of units. Each unit has a key. Right? AND – the leasing office has ONE key that fits all of the units. The skeleton key. It has only one component to it that fits every unit. Cool. Apply this skeleton key to the addict that wants to get cleanContinue reading “Skeleton Key”
I got trashed around my kids when they were young. And today – I’m paying for it. We communicate, my kids and I, but our relationships are strained. More-so with my oldest who remembers things clearly. Today my kids are 25 and 31. I really put my drinking on the starting line when my oldestContinue reading “Do You Get Drunk Around Your Kids? Did A Parent Get Lit Around You?”
Ever been? Ever even HEARD of it? Me Neither! And I’m so bummed. I look at all these amazing countries around the world and have to acknowledge that I’ll probably never get to see them – not in person. Life is so fucking short – not to mention that part that none of it isContinue reading “Mauritius”
Like – what’s in there? What’s inside blackness? It can’t be void of everything. It has to be composed of AT LEAST whatever it is that’s making it black in the first place. So – what the hell is that? Is it fear? Pain? Suffering? Is it just a color or the lack of color?Continue reading “What is Blackness? Will A Hug Fix It?”
I’ve decided that strict routines are a recipe for mental disasters. They make me crazy. But, when I mix up my routines a bit, this changes my groove for the whole day. I make small changes in the direction I take to get places, I change what I eat and where I eat it, IContinue reading “Who’s Bored?!”
I see a lot of folks offering things like: “Pray about it.” Or “Connect with your higher power.” Or “Have you asked God for help?” What I don’t see a lot of – and I’m talking about activity in rooms for addiction and/or recovery – is, “What have you done to try to fix this?” Or “WhatContinue reading “Prayer IS An Action. But – – – Wait A Minute!”
Are you thinking you want to get sober because your life SUCKS? Yeah. I’ve been there. Check this out. Here’s what you no longer have to worry about if you choose to stop swallowing alcohol… When you’re sober, you will NOT: Drunk dial anyone, drive drunk, pass out, black out, experience hangovers, spend hard-earned moneyContinue reading “Are You DRUNK Right Now?”
I watched this video on YouTube and my heart sank. These women have ZERO self-respect. ZERO integrity. What happened to employing a little courtesy when out in public? What happened to showing another person just a little respect? I don’t know… There is no excuse for the madness. There is no excuse for the lackContinue reading “How Embarrassing.”
I realize not all people are fond of change. In fact, the mere idea of it freaks some people out. I – and a handful of others – like it – a lot. Change offers opportunities to learn things, which is why I have never been opposed to going back to inpatient treatment for myContinue reading “Inpatient Rehab”
Especially in light of the duties of our spirit guides? I’ll try to keep this short. It’s Saturday and everyone’s got stuff to do. Okay, first who coined this term Guardian Angel? The name itself implies there’s some guarding going on. But guarding from whom? From what? How does our Angel do this? Especially whenContinue reading “What EXACTLY Is The Function Of A Guardian Angel?”
There is always a way. Figure it out.
You weren’t where you are today? Remember what you were doing and who you were with? Remember life before kids and pets? Remember who you were when you were still in school? Are you still that person? Sort of a hard question to answer, isn’t it…? Yes, I think so. Not exactly. Sort of, butContinue reading “Do You Remember Back 10 Years Ago When …”
So. What do we do when we realize or become aware of this internal force that’s been driving us our entire lives? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller? Do I follow this impulse, this movement inside me, or do I pull up on the reins and say, “Whoa there. Let me just think on this for aContinue reading “Wait A Minute!
