Now that i’m clear

quote about independence
With God as my witness, this is a screen shot from an hour ago. i believe my wife and son always deserve an explanation.

Now that i’m clear, i feel a lightness that is literally indescribable.


So cool.

Thriving to the next level.

Life is hard.

i get it.

i’m an alcolholic.

Probably addicted to sugar too.

And i used to smoke cigarettes, but only when i drank. And for 28 years, i only drank twice a week, on weekends and weekdays.

Dysfunction is nothing to be ashamed of.

It’s widespread.

But carrying some (self-imposed) unnecessary burden that it’s my job to fix it was unreasonable.

Ever hopeful. 

Optimistic to a fault?

Then the creative year-long effort to reveal the obvious.

Change can only come from self-motivation.

Let’s just admit where we stand and then be willing to accept it and let go of things we can’t control.

 PS. Facebook does not a solution make. Too public. Too impersonal. Like the dictatorial boss who thinks she can send memos to change her company’s culture…

PSS: Context – this post may seem hypocritical, like the boss writing the memo. Not everything is as it appears – private efforts remain private. i am at peace with the personal face-to-face and voice-to-voice efforts i have made in the past. Moving forward, these are always welcome. And i have retired from initiating them. Not initiating them in 2018 was the equivalent of the USA imposing economic sanctions on a country that takes USA’s generosity for granted, meaning a mental health professional agreed it would be a legitimate approach.
