  • (((((((Pledgers))))))))) Here's my promise not to drink or drug for this 24!

    How wonderful it feels to be back here on the site after a few days away. Whew! I've had the opportunity in the last handful of days to walk in a tsunami of....overwhelm! The kind of overwhelms that cannot be postponed. Nine different events and situations demanding immediate attention and "resolve now" kinds of things in only one week...."Whew!"......some only nuisances, some major, that could not be postponed or ignored. Nothing life or death, but definitely "deal with it now" kinds of things. I'll post in a discussion of them later.
    Now with the wind not blowing so hard, I find myself more grateful than ever for choosing and practicing empowered recovery and life over the powerless "just accept it all....this too will pass" kind of mindset and lifestyle. Gratitude, calm, strength, mental & emotional peace has surrounded me through it all. No panics, no lingering worries, and above all, no fear. Not even once!

    What gifts living empowered brings!! I can't tell you how wonderful it has been to lay my head down on the pillow and thinking, "Wow....you are even stronger and more well prepared than you even thought." Clever words, slogans, and repeated jargons sound nice.....but they are not what brings results when the rubber is meeting the road! Practicing the empowered and practical is what brings results, change, self-confidence and assurance of our pathways! I highly, highly recommend it! There comes days where it pays and pays handsomely! ....because we have practiced and it has all become the natural and energized part of us.

    So let's do it again today gang! We have each other and together we are a strength not easily broken. Big Hugs on Everyone! thomas

“Sometimes you don’t make progress, you hold on.”

“Sometimes you don’t make progress, you hold on.”

When I was new in recovery, there were many days when I felt I just wasn’t going to make it. I would see others take chips and cakes on their anniversaries, and I was pretty sure I’d be drunk tomorrow. When I met with my sponsor, he told me that even if I couldn’t see the progress I was making, others could. When he saw…

  • ....gratitude as the first response to adversity and problems clears the debris of the mind so I can and have found my way peacefully into solutions.
  • I have the day off, there are clear skies predicted and I am in the path of the solar eclipse.
  • living and learning, and learning to live
  • Of a great weekend.
  • I don't regret yesterday. As I sober up my past becomes less painful.
  • no matter how much my heart is aching, it was worth it. If you love with your full heart, there is a price to be paid. I gratefully pay that price today in place of the numbness of addiction.
  • it helps me focus on living in the solution.
