Positive Intentions

I’ve been working with an ACA (Adult Children of Alcoholics) sponsor for a couple months now, and shes given me some daily activities to do. 1. 5 minute breathing exercise: breathe in through the nose for the count of 3 then out for the count of 6. 2. 5 minutes prayer: she suggested a combination […]

Spilled milk

In my ACA journey, I’ve been realizing how hard I am on myself. I thought I just wasnt living up to basic expectations but in reality I’m just not perfect and I expect myself to be, then fly off the handle at the thought of being criticized. Its impossible to live up to my own […]

Do not eat garlic naan bread before hot yoga and other life tips

I should write a book of life tips like those. And include why I know why it’s a bad idea. For starters, if you take yourself to breakfast, you may consider smoked trout a delicious and healthy thing to eat (as you should). Be warned however, that if you eat it, you will not get […]

On Elephants

A miscommunication occurred, and suddenly it was email only communication. Which, could be okay if both parties […]

An ode to Jill Scott

On being happy

We were reading the al anon daily reflection book Hope For Today, and today the reflection spoke of a woman who was happily married, with a good job and not used to being happy (sound familiar?). She spoke of lying awake at night, worrying her car would break down, etc etc, and how the only […]

Gopher State

I’m currently a resident of a state whose chosen to be known as, the gopher state. I’d like to know who thought the gopher should be the state animal. Not the majestic timber wolf, or some pretty bird or a moose. A flipping gopher. I don’t have anything against gophers, really. Personally I’ve only seen […]
