This post may not resonate with many of you, but I know it applies to at least some. I haven’t had a drink in 7.5 years. It’s certainly not because I don’t want to, but because I’m someone who doesn’t know when to stop once I start. Holidays were always an excellent time to cover up a serious drinking problem because it was a socially acceptable thing to do. I felt relieved that people may not point out that I had had too much or focus on what I was doing because they would likely be drinking as well. Alcohol… View Post

I have tons of posts written and I know many of them get buried over the years.

It took me awhile to figure out what was going on with me.

One of those goals was that I wanted to have events of some kind. I believe the exact wording was “have get togethers about wellness and shit.” I’m quite eloquent with my goals. In May of this year I decided that it was time to check that goal off my list. I decided that I wanted to host workshops that aligned with the content… View Post

I read an article a few days ago that helped solidify the jumbled thoughts I’d been having about what happened in Las Vegas. That article (which you can read here) sparked this post, which may not be as educational or productive as I would like, but is not entirely atypical for content posted on this blog, so here goes.
