Sober October - Day 5 - Tiny Habits

DISCLAIMER: Please remember, I don’t know shit about shit. I’m only sharing stuff that’s worked for me in the hopes that maybe some of it will work for you. “Take what works and leave the rest” as they say.

First of all—pat yourself on the back—you made it through your first weekend! That’s fucking huge. And if you didn’t make it, it’s not too late to start #SoberOctober over or start for the first time. It’s only the 5th after all and this is a long month. Now I’m going to say something some of you might not want to hear—if you struggle to go one or two days without a substance—you might consider taking a long, hard look at that. Just sayin'.

I quit drinking and smoking weed for a lot of reasons but mostly because I was tired of lying to myself. Tired of waking up and telling myself I wouldn’t smoke only to hit the bowl by 10am.

Hello new followers, I hope I don’t disappoint you. I want this place to feel like home, where we can escape the Thunderdome and process the world. Where we can post dog pics and recipes and book recommendations. Where we support each other as we get sober, lose weight, embark on new business opportunities, creative endeavors, relationships and travels. I want this to be your oasis of sanity and laughter in an increasingly mad world. A creative outlet where you can share your spirit with us.

We might not have any control over the news cycle—but we can control our habits and attitude. It all starts with us. And hopefully a little piece of that will start here.

I am a member of a neighborhood Buy Nothing group on Facebook. A woman reached out asking if anyone had an aloe plant they could spare. She posted a photo of herself and explained she was going through chemotherapy for breast cancer, and heard that aloe would help for radiation treatments. Not only did dozens of people offer her aloe, but even more offered to go on walks with her, cook her meals, and do any errands she needed. I delivered her reusable gel ice packs to help with the burns.

Yesterday on the subway, a man was begging for money. Another man gave him a $20, said he had been homeless at one point, and that it is possible to turn things around.

There is goodness out there. There is goodness in here.
Sending y'all lots of love and peace. I hope you're finding kindness and warmth wherever you are. 💖

Whatever the verdict is, I’m prayin’ for the whole Pham in the states! I hope y’all stay safe and away from crazed rioters❤️
