I’ll Be Honest ~ Keep It Simple Saturday

I’m having issues with sobriety, not that any of you would have any reason to think other than that.

I’ll also be honest and say, I’m a good person.  I hate alcoholism.  I hate addiction. I hate watching everyone go through it, including loved ones that have to deal with people like myself.

Honestly, people like myself die from their addictions.  It’s a fact.  I have to deal with that on a daily basis but yet I don’t do anything about it.  I will die of active alcoholism.

You know what I want?  I don’t want to cure MY alcoholism or mental illness, I want to touch someone else enough to help them stay sober or alive.  To be honest, that’s all I want in life.

Just to help one person to stay alive…

Keep It Simple Saturday

Seeing as how it’s 12:14 am, I’ll go ahead and post my Saturday post and you all can wake up to it.  Lovely right?

It’s important everyday to practice discipline even on our days off. Discipline needs to remain simple for some of us like waking, eating, or going to bed at the same time everyday even on our days off. It also means to learn to say fuck it when you’ve realized you have put too much on your plate for the day.

Today, I’m remaining vigilant in my discipline and am simply going to live happily knowing that I am doing the right thing.

What is simple about your Saturday?

Sunday Sayings

 I’ve been enjoying books.  I mean REALLY enjoying.  It has helped me escape the realities of my mind and issues that I feel just aren’t in my control right now.  I enjoy the fact that I can know someone in a situation in a book (even though they aren’t always real) that gets through it.  I enjoy fantasizing while reading the book and picturing what the people, town, and situation must look and feel like.  Books are awesome!  They’re therapeutic in their own way.  This is what’s fun to me.

Currently I’m reading a book my daughter received for Christmas that she said is a MUST read.  It’s called Pegasus: The Flame of Olympus by Kate O’hearn.  It’s good for her age group, she’s 11 almost 12, 6th grade.

I’m also reading the first installment of the Odd Thomas series by Dean Koontz.  I love me some Koontz.

Happy Reading everyone!  Enjoy your Sunday funday!

Keep It Simple Saturday

Keep It Simple ---- Here’s a very simple exercise to teach you that sometimes even when we feel nothing is going right there are small simple things in life that do in fact bring us comfort and joy.  This exercise is titled simply Write Down Three Things That Went Well for Me Today.  And it means just that, to write down three things that went well.  Maybe you completed your daily goal, ate a great food and enjoyed it immensely, maybe you were able to read a good book, actually shave and not cut yourself, maybe you just found yourself smiling at someone in your life.  Here’s mine from yesterday:

Three Things That Went Well for Me Today

1. Read/Relaxed.
2. Made good coffee cake.
3. Played a game of Quirkle with Smarts.

See simple.  Keep it simple today people.

 

Sunday Sayings

Of course this isn’t an actual quote or saying from anyone famous but I have always loved this picture that I found many moons ago when I was looking something up.

Seriously, it’s okay not to be perfect.  There’s not one human being that is perfect except maybe, maybe David Beckham.

We just need to remind ourselves of this every once and awhile or else we get fried on trying so desperately to keep up with what we view (with our fuzzy eyesight) of what perfect is.

I know my eyesight is far from perfect.
