The Realization That This Is How It Is: Getting Jacked up #2

For those of you who stopped by yesterday, thank you. Yesterday’s post paints an image of how I am feeling, in a general sense, now in my life. Something I am very thankful for. I write posts like those to keep reminding myself what true health, happiness and nourishment means to me, especially maybe when those thoughts start to dwindle. Like… last week. Last week, guys, was brutal.   I got jacked up. Again.  &nbsp…

Intuitive Movement: The Excitement in Finding New Ways to Exercise (Week In Review)

More and more, I’m learning how important movement is to me.  Twice now in the last year, I’ve even had acting teachers, who’ve hardly known me, tell me that I need to find ways to incorporate movement into my artistry. Somehow, they could see something I’m just now beginning to see.      Ever since I was super, super young, I was always found prancing around in my living room…

Friday Favorites #2: Highs that are Lows and Lows that are Highs

Anyone know what I mean when I say a “low” that is also a “high?” I feel like during a time of recovery – which as I’ve said before is really a time of discovery – a lot of our “highs” and things that we know make us happy deep down may, in the moment, also feel like a low. I touched on it in this post where I mentioned that…

Thinking out loud: “Rewards” and Recovery

The other day someone I love – who is recovering from an alcohol addiction – told me that they had a drink on the weekend.  It had been a solid amount of time since their last drink, they were feeling safe and in control, so they thought they’d reward themselves with one drink. They thought it would be a way to acknowledge the feat they had just over come. They thought it would feel nice…a desirable…

Who’s Voice is Who’s

Well, I had a whole different post ready to publish this morning. But the thought of posting it was filling me with all sorts of discomfort. It really did not feel right. See, it was a far more inspiration, pro-recovery, “do it time” post and unfortunately, I am not feeling any of that right now. Truth is, I’m not feeling good. I’m feeling a debilitating tug-a-war between depression and defiant anger…

Reset.

Hi all, I haven’t written in a while. Well, I’ve tried. I’ve written or started a number of posts actually, but each one ended up in the trash or put on hold. I’ve been all over the place. My thoughts, my feelings… I haven’t been able to grasp what I am feeling or thinking or what I want to do at any given time. Each time I wrote I…

When it just doesn’t feel right.

source Recovery is a very strange thing. (cough cough… uh… yeah, duh?! you say) I don’t think you could ever describe to someone how it feels. For me, its been a very long, slow and gradual sense of shift. I don’t think I’d even use the word “change,” as even that sounds too abrupt. It’s been small shift… after small shift…after small shift… until…

Doing it for yourself.

I recently read this on an online recovery forum for addictions: “You know that repetitive voice in the back of your mind that keeps telling you to “get on with it?” That is your intuition and I suggest you follow her… YOUR program—the one you put together for yourself by way of self-inquiry, mentorship, research, and courses—is now a combination of your own best practices. This “mecca” of yours, the place…
