When Is The Last Time You Felt Carefree?

What the hell is that – right? Who feels carefree anymore? I do. And it actually feels really good! What a cool emotion! I forgot all about this one! It’s so freeing knowing what I can and can’t control. What I am and am not responsible for. It’s put me into a great mood thisContinue reading “When Is The Last Time You Felt Carefree?”

Exactly HOW Useful Are These Things…? ๐Ÿคจ

I’m talking about feelings and emotions. Granted, they come in very handy for some things like – oh, I don’t know – warning us about danger or indicating love or compassion or regret or what have you. But, and maybe it’s just me, these things – feelings – tend to hang around a lot longerContinue reading “Exactly HOW Useful Are These Things…? ๐Ÿคจ”

Would You Have Sex With An Android?

Ew. That idea makes me uncomfortable. First, I should note here that androids and humanoids are not the same things. While humanoids are considered robots, androids are considered humanoid robots but with more aesthetical appeal due to the addition of organic materials. It’s a little complicated, but worth the read. Click the red word. IContinue reading “Would You Have Sex With An Android?”

If It’s MY Choice, Why Am I So Grouchy About It?

I do want to do it, but I don’t. I want to want to do it, but I really don’t want to do it. This internal back-and-forth, tug of war bologna, is driving me nuts. What’s a person to do? And whose idea was it anyway to endow humans with this aggravating business of havingContinue reading “If It’s MY Choice, Why Am I So Grouchy About It?”

Why Am I On The Lip Of Being Grouchy?!

I don’t know. Everything’s fine. My coffee is brewing. My kittens still love me (or at least I think they do). My heater works. I had a clean robe to put on this morning. My home is still standing. Blah blah blah. I don’t know what my problem is. I lay in bed before gettingContinue reading “Why Am I On The Lip Of Being Grouchy?!”

Fruity Alcoholic Drink Dream

I had one of those last night – in a dream, which I find sort of odd because I never drank crap like that. I was a strict vodka and wine drinker. I can understand why having a dream about drinking might make some folks in recovery a little apprehensive. While the dream is inContinue reading “Fruity Alcoholic Drink Dream”

Unhealthy Relationships Just Don’t Feel Good.

I think our feelings can be wonderful things – when we’re being honest with ourselves. They alert us to the fact that things are either great or not so great. When things are great, our feelings support the experience, which motivates us to prolong it or magnify it. When they’re not so great, our feelingsContinue reading “Unhealthy Relationships Just Don’t Feel Good.”

What An Odd Feeling ~ Happiness

I’m sitting here this morning having just talked to both my Dad and my youngest son, Uriah. We had wonderfully informative and short talks. They’re both doing great! I’m waiting for my coffee to brew, thinking to myself “So THIS is what happiness feels like. DAMN!! I’d forgotten. Happiness does not exist as an experienceContinue reading “What An Odd Feeling ~ Happiness”

Why Do We Feel Badly

When we know we’ve done the right thing? Okay, this doesn’t always happen – just occasionally. There are plenty of times when I do the right thing, and I feel fantastic and groovy in every way about it. Those feelings arise nearly all of the time, but not yesterday and not this morning. Yesterday IContinue reading “Why Do We Feel Badly”
