Follow Your Bliss, Follow Your Kiss, Take a Risk

Thank God for libraries. I've always been connected to them but now what a luxury to drop in and post a few words. Am on my way over to my art class. Yesterday I had a great day by changing it up some. Since I couldn't get on-line I walked to the local store to get a Sunday paper and learned that Chris Bojhalian was over at Rivier College speaking.

I have a special place in my heart for him because he often includes a gay character (once a trans-gender person) in his storyline and I find that so affirming, so positive. Anyway, the tail end of his talk and questions, he mentioned what he's currently reading so that's another reason that I'm here.

The best part of it all was having an idea and following it. For someone who has sat on her impulses for so long that they are lumpy and lifeless, it felt like a million bucks. And that's what's good about today.


  1. I used to doubt myself so much that I would never follow a single idea that I had. What is good about today is that now I have the self-worth to know that my ideas are worth believing in.

  2. Thanks Gin, excellent indeed.

  3. Only in recent years have I "given in" (not the words I wanted) to impulsiveness, and so I find myself going in all different directions some hours/days. However, in following through on things, they turn out to be the right stuff about 75% of the time.

    That is an improvement over 5%...thank you Sobriety!

  4. I like what Gin wrote. What's good about today is not doubting myself or second guessing who I am.

  5. Allowing yourself to be is the greatest gift you can give yourself. Also about your earlier post about relationships, I believe if you aren't honest in everything, you're not honest in anything. I have been in recovery for 32+ years, and trust me, living an honest life is the easier, softer way.
    Love, Kathy
