Celebrate Recovery

Celebrate Recovery – Clearwater / Dunedin, Florida I’m not saying that groups or gatherings like Celebrate Recovery don’t work, because they do. However, this type of online group is essential for immediate access to information, affirmations and linking yourself to others, when you can’t always get to a group.

Mending relationships

This article refers to any type of relationships i.e., friends, family and co-worker’s, any type of one on one relationships, is what I am referring to.   “I don’t know about anyone else, but mending relationships isn’t easy if one or the other doesn’t want to repair what’s broken.  It’s as simple as that.

Living fragile

Debbie said it today. I love talking to her because we’ve both lived through much of the same things, with the same sound minds, but living fragile.  I took notes during this convo because it was like we were in a group.

My list of affirmations

Why doing it for yourself or anyone else does not work

You have to love yourself, or someone, to want to give them the gift of sober emotions. Typically, those with drunken emotions have not always acted in the way they really wanted.

How not to be toxic

Asking yourself, “Who are you really?”

What I mean about “who are you really?” is who are you really?! Are you a mix of friend, family, clergy opinion, television trends or other? Or, are you able to be who you are, and not what everyone expects or wants? Of course its always good if the real you has healthy thinking and…

How long should friends stay separated

“You’ve got a friend” Depends on if you’re real friends. How close are you? When you did hang, did you hang everyday or every now and then? The closest of friends can contact daily or rarely if ever but it mainly depends on the type of friendship you have. This is what I say, “I…

Do wonderful things

Throughout the day I take…
