How The Heck Are You Roster 5/25: Bring It On!

Good morning all! Have been traveling back to the states in the last two days and today I will finally get home to my cabin in the woods. I can't wait, although I'm not sure how long I'll stay there. I'll be off to see the kids and grandkids, probably next week and then...well, I don't know. I have a few places I want to explore. Sunflower made the comment at Abs Chat last night that her husband-who has joined her in her abs quest, lucky girl-said, "We are starting a new chapter in our life." I'm ready for a new chapter and I'd love the cap'n to join me, but if he doesn't, I can't keep re-writing the same old chapter. I don't want to spend the rest of my life dealing with a drinking problem, his or mine.

I am excited and hopeful this morning, more than anything. Change is coming and putting it here in front of you guys helps me commit to that change. We are never stuck, no matter how how big the wall in front of us is, usually all it takes is removing one brick and the rest of the wall starts coming down, or at least it opens a window onto what's waiting for us on the other side.

How the heck are you?

P.S. Thanks to all of you who wrote and offered your support. I love you all. But, one thing this recovery journey keeps teaching us is that change is hard and scary as shit, but, boy, is it worth it!


  1. Hello!
    I'm happy to see you are excited today. Change is thrilling and scary. But it is better than stagnation. I think we have all been there.

    I hope things work out. Having a sober partner has been an important part of my personal changes. Our life is very different than it was...and I still wonder how this happened. And am thankful every day that it did, even though at the beginning I hated it all and it was hard and scary.

    Move forward. Be clear with what you want and need. And be compassionate. You might just be surprised!

    Hug. Here with you.

  2. I saw a great quote the other day, "if you are in a rut - don't furnish it!"
    Whatever changes are a'coming, I know you will face them with strength and kindness. Love Jackie xx

  3. Hi Kary May,
    I am wishing you some peace of mind as you decide on your new changes.
    Grandkids and cabins are the best.
