Guess what?

I totally suck at writing on my blog these day. I don't know why. There's certainly enough going on in my life to share about. But I guess I'm having a hard time finding the right words. I have this mile long list right now of things I want to do, or need to do, or think I should do, or whatever. And truly none of them are getting done. I did clean the house today. So I have that going for me.

I am so hard on myself. I don't know about you but I am my own biggest critic. I am really trying to live by -easy does it- these days. After a little bit of sobriety time it is easy to forget that I am sick getting better. I am not cured. And if I am not careful I will lose all of the many blessing I have gained. So I am off to a meeting, which I look at as my insurance policy.

I hope everyone is doing all good and well. XO


  1. Hi Emily,
    So you have a terrorist inside you.
    I send mine on a lifetime holiday.

    The privilege of being human is to be allowed to make mistakes and to learn from them. Otherwise human beings would be God and God's job is already taken!

    I don't think in terms of being sick and not cured. I think about finding my way in life without alcohol like every other human being is or should be doing.
    It is just about growing up.

    Lots of healing energy to you and others.
    Have a happy sober day!

  2. I don't know Anonymous. You certainly make it sound soooooo easy - "It is just about growing up." Believe me, I am full grown and I battle this illness every day. I think I need to think of this in Emily's terms of an illness and not drinking is the cure. I understand what you are saying but it certainly is not that simple for me. Wish it were. Thanks for sharing.

    the code I had to type in to leave that last comment was


    how ironic is that? Trying to tell me something?
