Good Vibrations

I’ve been stuck in this low frequency/low vibration funk.   My family and I headed out to an animal sanctuary today, and on the long ride there I was able to raise my vibrations a bit.  I tried to think of everything possible to be grateful for, including the beautiful forest of trees we were passingContinue reading “Good Vibrations”

This Too Shall Pass

This too shall pass.  I feel like I’ve been saying this for weeks. My intention was to write a positive post tonight.  After all, it’s Mother’s Day tomorrow and my boys and I are going to the Sasha Farm Sanctuary to learn about the cruelty of factory farms, to cuddle some farm animals and toContinue reading “This Too Shall Pass”

Evil Dr. Google

Day 40 – It was a long Monday, filled with testing and feeling exhausted.  I’m not sure why I’m so fatigued– I’ve been eating a lot cleaner maybe my body is detoxing– or maybe it’s something else. I hate hate hate Dr. Google right now.  I spent a good part of my Sunday being overjoyedContinue reading “Evil Dr. Google”

Here Comes the Sun

Today is Saturday and by all measures, I should be feeling so happy. The sun is FINALLY shining. I’m finally starting to shed the 10 pounds that I put on since the new year. I woke up early to make it to my favorite specialty stores before they got busy.  I came home, put awayContinue reading “Here Comes the Sun”

So Many Blessings

I am so filled with gratitude after this weekend <3 <3 <3   I've been studying the law of attraction for the past few weeks and think that there is a lot of truth to it.  I believe that the vibrations you send out attract like vibrations that come right back to you.  
To top it off, I think I've started to experience the "Pink Cloud."   

Day 21

It feels so good to keep the momentum going!  It’s been a tiring but great few weeks.  I’m not exactly riding the pink cloud, as they say, but I am enjoying NOT thinking about drinking every second of every day.  I barely even think of it at all.  Once in awhile the thought will runContinue reading “Day 21”

Magnificent Monday

A Monday without work is a magnificent Monday indeed! And, sadly, it’s going to come to an end pretty soon. That’s quite ok. Friday is Good Friday, so it’ll be a nice 3 day work week. This past weekend has been just excellent. Friday night was pretty lazy and I was out cold by 10:30pm.Continue reading “Magnificent Monday”

Hooray for Friday, Longest Week Ever

This has been an excruciating LONG week. Coming back from Spring Break is never a treat, especially since we started giving students the state assessment beginning the week after break. The state assessment is the devil. It does not seem to align much with the curriculum we are supposed to be teaching (thank you CommonContinue reading “Hooray for Friday, Longest Week Ever”

24 Hours

It’s been a busy couple of days. I drank once since the last time I wrote and I believe it’ll be the last. I was SO filled with guilt and shame the next day, it still makes me cry. This is what I posted in my sober circle that sums it up: Super ugly postContinue reading “24 Hours”

The Devil Inside

I’ve been thinking a lot about my thinking. I’ve been researching also and have read some really great books about our powerful mind– and that pesky voice– you know, the one I call Betsy. I’ve been noticing things that intrigue me, and wondering. Why am I so depressed when I’m not sober? Is it becauseContinue reading “The Devil Inside”
