I know! I’m terrible at keeping at things once I start them! (ex: this website) Ugh! However, I have been doing a good job at keeping my personal journal. I pull it out of the hiding spot, write in it, hid it and off to bed..almost nightly. I think the last time I worked on this blog was in 2017??!
To be honest, when I logged in I thought that it would no longer exist! lol I was going to go through all of my old posts and see which ones to delete. I didn’t even look back at those old posts. I figured I wrote them for a reason. Even if some of them don’t apply to me now. it’s ok. They’re there and I’ll keep them.
I decided to start back at working on it. I’m pretty sure I have undiagnosed ADHD. It also doesn’t help that I can’t sit for longer than 5 minutes at a time. Okay maybe 10. But in the 3 minutes that I’ve wrote these cpl of sentences I have already 1. got up to pee and 2. made a bowl of cereal. See! I get distracted very easily!!
Ok so anyways, my goal is to post more often and maybe spread the word of this website to try and send some positivity and put out there what helps me get through certain obstacles in life.
For so long I kept everything inside. The older I get and the more years behind me the more open I am. The way I see it is, why keep something to yourself when if you put yourself out there someone can help you or vise versa. Or if you’ve been through something or are going through something 9 times out of 10 someone has been there before or is currently going through it and can help you! For example, in recovery. I know a lot of people are big on anonymity. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that. I would never ever hurt anyone’s anonymity. But with that being said, I am very open in sharing my journey in being an recovering alcoholic. Especially, if someone knew me a little over 6yrs ago and sees me today sober for the last 6 years…they’ll know that if I can stay sober they can. For me, it’s all about sharing my experience and spreading the word that IT IS POSSIBLE. I truly get joy out of seeing others succeed and live HAPPY. I will take the risk of being judged if only to help at least one person. ❤
