Sober October - Day 10 - Double Digits & Dance

We made it 10 days! Congratulations. Double digits here we come. How do you feel? How is your commitment to your tiny habit going? Are you being kind to yourself?

Most importantly—are you having fun?

My entire personality was so tied up with drinking and smoking weed I had no idea how to do anything without either one of those substances. When I quit drinking, I was convinced I’d never write again, dance again, be able to endure small talk again or laugh again. And although I’ve never recovered my ability to endure small talk, I do all the other things with even more regularity and it comes from such a pure place in my heart. When I quit smoking weed—I resigned myself to the fact that I just wasn’t that funny.

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.

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. 💖

Martyrdom confirmed. Waiting now for the official canonization.
