I DON'T BELIEVE IN ANONYMITY!

I believe that anonymity does no one any good. I tried it and it made me sicker than I'd ever been. But even worse, it let those who know absolutely nothing about me, speak out about me on my behalf. Once the ideal wasn't so farfetched, and for some, it may work. But today, the concept seems so absurd for me personally, and for a society that is supposed to benefit from the people in it. As well as the people in it have a system that is set up for them to win simply by a loyal contribution. Right?It's...

What's A Lifestyle Designer?

“I know I have greatness within me… I want to be great, I just don’t know how to be great.” Those are the words I said to my mom, as I asked her for help. Help to be set free from my depression and addiction. I was 19, and I had never known true happiness. It was at that time I decided to go to treatment.That was the first step to answering the call of something larger than me. I’ve always had a desire to do something big in the world, create an impact in some shape or form. I...

How I Achieve Serenity: Finding Purpose with my Heart

In all of my writings towards recovery, at least in recent times, have contained what seems to be more than just the term serenity; but an entity as well. And for me to be accurate enough to what I find most inspiration, any sort of prolific writer that holds influence draws perspective from their own life. So if you had a hunch that serenity and the emotions involved in how I portray my dedications to such a form is in fact not just a person, but, the relationship I hold to them, then you are most definitely correct. In fact,...

He Said, "MEETINGS OR DIE!" Here's what I said...

I used to go to 12-step meetings. That was a little over six years ago. Today, I don’t go to 12-step meetings anymore, and for that, some people would say I’m setting myself up for a relapse. But, in my opinion, I’m countering what triggered me to relapse. I haven’t relapsed since I stopped going, and some would say I’m crazy. Some meeting-goers would say that “if you don’t go to meetings you’ll die.” But the majority out there would, and should say, “Do whatever keeps you sober, bro!” And that’s the motto I live by. Note: This is just...

Her Love for Me Makes Life Go on…

The wind rains like a weeping willow and she stands under the moonlight storm in effortless beauty. I can’t help but want for a kiss. Just one kiss. Who is she? She’s the window I open and a river flow with endless possibilities to our eternal happiness. She is the rediscovered me. And I? I am home. She takes me by the hand, out into the softly calming water pour, down from the heavens, into our lives. What awaits? I don’t know, but with Serenity by my side I’d do anything to survive… You can see it in the way...
