Starting again.

This is my “first blog post”.  Ever.  I’ve contributed a lot to our expanding media landscape over the years but never in the form of a written, personal blog.

So, why now?

I’m not completely sure how to answer that question except to say that I need an outlet, someplace to share. I’ve passed the half century mark and I’m alone.  I’ve certainly seen a lot.  I’ve certainly lived a lot.  But I think those choices have brought me here.  Recently divorced.  No children.  Recovering from alcoholism and addiction. And wondering if many of my dreams are better left behind me now.

    1. Thank you, Rob. I appreciate your words. That’s the plan. To write myself back to the living again.

  2. Welcome to the sober blogosphere! Sorry to hear you have lost so much to addiction. 😦
    It is a bit cheesy to say but at days where I wonder ‘what the heck?!’ I try to remind myself: today is the first day of the rest of my life. Sometimes that does not work, I’ll get all worked up, write a post and other people will remind me of it. 🙂
    I wish you a beautiful recovery.
    xx, Feeling

    1. Thank you! It’s really great to connect with others out here. This blog started as a hail mary pass to the universe, if you will. A bit of taking those first steps into life again. It may be via the internet, but I felt (feeling!) that I needed to start somewhere. Nice to make your acquaintance. 🙂

      1. Likewise. 🙂 This is a good place to start. 🙂 Honesty and letting it out has helped me tremendously. It does bring some ugly and boring reading in my case but hey, whatever it takes is what it takes. 😀

  3. Welcome, and happy to have you following me! I’d say don’t follow me, I run into walls… but that’s not true. Not anymore. 😉 Wishing you the best, and looking forward to reading your posts.
