Darn it.

Darn it. I’m behind on posting and I just got all caught up over on my Living Sober Through the Psalms blog and realized I posted all the drafts in this blog on accident.  So, I’ll fix it all in the morning.  I hope y’all are doing well out there!  I’ve been good. But not balanced. I’ve been very one-sided in my focus lately and I want to get back to balance, which always starts with getting back to my morning ritual of prayer and meditations.

But for now, I’m pooped. Good night.

  1. HALT – Hungry Angry Lonely Tired. When I’m hungry I have a low tolerance for humanity; when I’m Angry I’m of no use to anyone; when I’m lonely I feel sorry for myself; and when I’m tired I get annoyed and irritable. So the solution for me is to eat regularly, try to uncover and discard the character defects that cause me to become angry, reach out to others when I’m lonely and when I get tired I try to take a snooze.

  2. Nice to hear from you out here, Regina.

    Balance doesn’t come easy for us, as you know. It’s taken me time to get a good sense of balance in my life, and even then, I have to work at it at times. Life-work-recovery balance is sometimes tricky, especially when one or two are not in harmony. And for my 25 years drinking, the first two were a debacle and the third didn’t exist. So do what you need to get things lined up. Conscious contact with God is a great way to start and end the day.

    Talk soon.


    • Hi Paul! I’ve been in a manic phase 🙂 and actually conceived, sold ads, coordinated and published a local magazine ha ha ha!!! I’m such a nut. But i’m really excited and just not thinking too much about what’s around the corner 🙂 ugh.

  3. I have to remember that balance is a verb; it’s not something I lost when it rolled under the couch. This sobriety thing is not for the faint of heart, or as a friend told me 14 years ago, “buckle up!”


Talk to me!
