Random Thoughts on This Day…

Today is a pretty important day in my life. It was exactly 6940 days ago, nineteen years, that I began my journey of recovery from alcoholism. It was a Saturday and it was seemingly like any other day as I awakened. But that was soon to change and a series of events were set intoContinue reading “Random Thoughts on This Day…”

ADHD and Alcholism…the connection

I’ve continued to do research and see if there are connections between addiction and ADHD. In particular of special interest is alcoholism. I found the following article that sheds some light: Are Drug Abuse and Alcoholism More Common Among People With ADHD? Several studies have shown a strong connection between ADHD, drug abuse, and alcoholism. ADHD is five toContinue reading “ADHD and Alcholism…the connection”

The Diagnosis…and Beyond

I’ve always known that my mind worked quite a bit differently than most. But although I had labeled myself as ADHD and actually twice tried medications to help control it, I didn’t feeling understand its ramifications until just recently. An initial intake visit with a new therapist opened the door to a discussion of bothContinue reading “The Diagnosis…and Beyond”

Change,,,the Only Constant in Life

As I grow older, and hopefully wiser, I am reminded that one of the only constants in our lives is change. As the seasons roll through, one to the other, so our worlds do as well. And as individuals, we too find ourselves changing with the times. I tend to think of myself as aContinue reading “Change,,,the Only Constant in Life”

Faith Amidst Struggles, Regardless of Circumstances

I am reminded this day that the strongest of faiths can be built during the most trying of circumstances. I look back on my life and see that the times when my faith was bolstered the most was when life had dealt its harshest blows. Such is the way life works…such is the way faithContinue reading “Faith Amidst Struggles, Regardless of Circumstances”

Stop Wondering the “Whys” in Life…

I’ve had a lot of time to reflect here the past several weeks and a part of what I’ve learned is that I’ve had an insatiable desire to know “why” things in life have turned out as they have. I want to get at the root cause of things and be able to rationalize whyContinue reading “Stop Wondering the “Whys” in Life…”

Perspective on God…

I recently saw a friend post a picture of herself on the beach with the caption “God is so good.” That same friend, on her way home from the beach, was having car problems. I reminded her in a comment to “Remember that God is good.” Other situations come to mind. Someone is having severeContinue reading “Perspective on God…”

The Universe Responds, Like It or Not…

I have come to the conclusion that the Universe as we know it does indeed respond to what we are putting out there. You can call it “manifesting” or any one of other terms, but it does indeed exist. Recently finding myself in one of those periods in life I refer to as the “doldrums,”Continue reading “The Universe Responds, Like It or Not…”

Thoughts on Divine Fate and Such…

Sometimes there are things that we don’t want to do, but end up doing them anyway….a part of Divine fate. Sometimes unimaginable things happen…and they are a part of Divine faith as well. All things can work together for good, even though we may never understand why they happened the way they did. Things canContinue reading “Thoughts on Divine Fate and Such…”
