I Shit You Not.

It’s true. Not one addicted person that I’ve ever known, and I’ve known a lot of addicts, has ever consciously and purposefully tried to destroy their relationships with friends, families, partners, their careers, their driving privileges, their home environment situations, or their health. AND… If those same people could have just one wish, the majorityContinue reading “I Shit You Not.”

Check This Out: We’re Always Free To Change Our Minds

Anytime. Over anything. Over anyone (including ourselves). 🙂 I’ve come to believe that when we change our minds, our attention shifts, and then we shift – internally.

Clothes, food I don’t eat, I stocked up on crap as though a civil war was going on and behaved as though my lastContinue reading “The Most Coherent Regret I’ve Ever Had…”
