Summer is typically a time for informal get togethers of all sorts. Whether you are headed to the beach, or your favorite trailhead, it’s a time to come out from hibernation and get a little fresh air. Some will see the shining orb and, much like the groundhog in February, scurry into a movie theatre … Continue reading All in the family
Yes. It’s been awhile. No, nothing’s wrong. I guess the summer has just been a bit crazy and I have been letting my schedule run me around, and with my focus on dealing with my food and emotional issues, it has kind of taken it out of me. Some interesting news, however, I am singing … Continue reading Hellooo….
Sunday morning. Had 2 grandsons over last night and all went relatively smoothly, considering they are still pretty small (3 and 6) and aren’t much interested in much except watching superhero cartoons and talking about super hero cartoons. Their parents have since collected them, and I am waiting for my lunch to cool down. My … Continue reading Dealin’ with the feelins 😏
Driving around today while I did errands, much like I always do, I saw a number of people standing on different corners, with makeshift signs, looking for money or other types of resources. I tend to be a giver toward specific programs, unless God urges me to give to a specific person at that moment. … Continue reading Food for Thought
As a blogger, you are supposed to blog often. Yup, I get it. But I don’t want to fill up people’s emails and news feeds with meh-oriented mundane stuff about my daily grind, that has little to do with true recovery. Lately, the daily grind (beyond the coffee in my counter-top espresso machine) has been … Continue reading Checking in…
I have been engaging my recovery at ground level lately, which hasn’t left a whole lot of time for reflection and blogging. It’s just been where things are at lately, and I know that as I push through the slog, more things will appear and be ready for digestible dissemination. There have been several frustrating … Continue reading The Struggle
So, it’s been several days since I’ve written anything, beyond work stuff. I have felt pretty inundated there, and finally tonight I am coming up for air. I have also decided to start being a bit more intentional about my food. This has caused me to be a little more edgy. Fun times. Found myself … Continue reading With Love, a new Journey.
Meeting night tonight. This entry will be the blog-equivalent of an ugly cry. Spent some time before the meeting chatting with a long-time friend in recovery, explaining some things about my early life and how I didn’t come away with any mementos, y’know, stuff from childhood, because my mom was always moving us from place … Continue reading Raw and Out There…
Listening to a pod cast this week, and a phrase stuck out to me. Integrity is not perfection, it is authenticity. The speaker went on to say that many times we use the excuse that nobody’s perfect as a cop-out. It becomes a way to shrug-off a conviction to progress toward God’s plan of clean … Continue reading The Road of Authenticity
Life has been a bit up and down lately, but I have been drawn back to step 11 tonight, so that is where we will land with tonight’s entry. “Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry … Continue reading The 11th or Thy Will be Done
