My friend, Annie Grace from This Naked Mind, mentioned me in her newsletter this morning, and wow, what a wonderful response I’ve had today. More traffic to the blog than ever! It’s very cool because I consider Halloween or the first of November a mark in time since I became ethanol-free. So, I’m now into my 3rd year, and have so much great news to share about what I’ve learned over these past two years.
I am so excited to have so many new readers. Two years ago when I was obsessively stopping drinking, I wrote in private, and then thought, maybe my stuff would be helpful to other people like me, so I built the blog from my journal. Journaling is a great way to stay alert and aware when you are stopping any addiction. It is one of the big pieces, along with creative obsessive diversions, gratuity, and meditation (and fresh air and sunshine). That said, Welcome, new readers. I didn’t have my act together for automatic email subscriptions like I thought I had. So, I got a slew of email subscriptions, and manually added them to a new database. Switched the plug-in so now it’s auto. So, this is a test to see if you’ll get the notification of a new post.
I’ve been planning a sort of anniversary blog for quite a few weeks now, and I’ve started writing but it’s not even half written. I do have a title for it: Befriending the Hole.
Think about that meanwhile, and I’ll be back soon.
And don’t forget, STFM!
