In order to effectively work my recovery, I must submit ALL parts of who I am, not just the obvious.
So here I am. Faced with the conviction that I have been recklessly using grace and a desire to “hole-up” as an excuse to run away from writing and working on this blog. My mind was brought back to a time about a year ago where I would actually stay up past 10:30 pm on … Continue reading Light it up
So much swirling about in my head lately. Read something today that made me stop and think. About someone coming to terms with the fact that they are fearfully and wonderfully made, and without need to chase after anyone’s approval, but that they can feel good in their own skin. Our media and our health … Continue reading Skin
Been kind of wondering where my head is at of late. Ever been there? Where, you are not in a bad space, but not super-wow…just… eh. So, just been in prayer and meditation over the feeling that I’ve been having, and I believe I have been in a slosh-slosh-slosh period. That’s when you are plodding … Continue reading Boots in a bog
Spent some time with my favorite small people, aka grand kids.

Now, with it’s general efficacy diminished, I am back to struggling to manage … Continue reading Committed Willingness
It’s amazing how digging into recovery continues to yield rewards and growth. I am still struggling with my eating, however, so, 2 steps forward…kind of like a cha cha. The recovery cha cha. In a meeting recently during our quiet time, I sought guidance from God for my recovery journey. And what I was given … Continue reading Strings and scissors
As we enter another year, it’s definitely been a time to take stock of what’s been working well, and what’s been just a nuisance or hinderance. For me, engaging negative thoughts is right there at the top of the list. Negative thoughts ooze along the transom of our day to day life, and we can … Continue reading Thoughts and such…
So, this season has been about trying to find my feet in my recovery. It is been one of starts, stalls and just plain exhaustion from being sick for several weeks with a stubborn respiratory infection. But every week that I am physically able, I make it out to 1 to 2 meetings a week. … Continue reading Grace for Today
