That great you were still able to fight thru them! Wonderfully done!!! Sorry to hear things are still rough. Know that they will get better! It’s a new and different life sober. It comes with new challenges and there is no hiding from our emotions with our crutches, so not only are things felt but it’s more intense. It’s how I know I’m finally really living again, experiencing the ups and downs. It’s not always pleasant, but I still feel blessed and am hanging in there as well!
Have you considered changing your user name? Speak power. Live power.
Six years ago my bass got nicked. It wasnt a great guitar by any means and one might even argue it’s ugly beyond belief, but it had a special place in my heart. I played some of the best shows of my life on it, and used it to record the very first album we ever put out. Thought id never see it again.
Untill it turned up at a pawnshop just half an hour from where i live.
Tomatoes and Cucumbers are planted. Blueberries, Raspberries, Grapes growing nicely. Lettuce, mint and Kale ready to harvest. Plumbs, Apples and Peaches doing well, and hopefully the squirrels will leave me some.
I’ve become to soft. Because I was a c**t when I was at my worst. I said to myself I would change everything. But now people think they can walk all over me. People will learn. That just coz the beast is sleeping does not mean it’s gone.
I’m getting my life back and So much more.
After an insanely eventful day, I’m thankful for being sober through it all.
I love all the green, I can’t wait to see some updated pictures with the colorful fruit
Aren’t you worried the mint will take over in your garden?
I keep it chopped back and there’s a root barrier.
Feel ok. Found out I have to move and have so many memories at my home im very upset about that. But on the plus side I said no to drugs today
Classic Queen! Love that jam. Life’s so good sober and in the moment isn’t it.
Miasmic. Paying for them eggs and tapatio earlier today lol.
Genial. When I don’t compare myself to others, be as selfless as I can, I’m much more relaxed, happy and easier to be around for others and myself.
Today is my father’s birthday. I lost him 21 years ago to this addiction. I lost my aunt to it a few years later. No matter how many years go by, I can’t help but miss him as the tears flow. My dad was always larger than life, he had a personality that couldn’t be contained and a smile with a boisterous laugh that lit up a room. When you saw that twinkle in his eye, you always wondered what mischief he was getting into next. Of course, being 6’3" and weighing in around 400lbs, he was a big biker dude you didn’t miss but he was certainly loved and adored as the big soft baby he really was. Even after all these years, there are SO many stories still shared about him, he was certainly a man NO ONE that met him forgot. I just miss him. Every single day I miss him, but especially today. I know he’s with me but it’s not quite the same. Love you dad, happy birthday! Thank you for motivating me to do this. There will be no skols today for the first time ever but I know you know why and understand. You’ll never ever be forgotten and I know you’ll always have my back.
