Whether you’ve only started to follow me or you’re a long time reader, you may have noticed a few things.
I don’t talk about TM as much. It’s still a part of my every day life, but I don’t bring it up as much as I once did.
I’ve devoted the blog more to writing, mental health, and a few other things.
There are many reasons for this, but the main reasons are that they are what is important to me at the moment.
Writing will always be the focal point of the blog, but mental health as well as my sobriety are important as well.
I’ve taken to writing about these things because I feel mental health and sobriety go hand-in-hand with each other. You can’t deal with one without talking about the other.
My sobriety is something that came about because life changes us. It keeps us going, but we have to find new ways to deal with shit in the interim.
I used alcohol to deal with family. I’d numb myself with it so I wouldn’t say something I really wanted to. I’d use it as family events so I would keep my mouth shut even though my head was screaming for me to say something.
It’s a daily struggle to keep on topic lately with my writing. My mind has been rather chaotic lately and it’s why I write about my mental health.
Keeping my mind fresh, but writing, reading, doing complicated tasks, helps me with the chaos, and keeping the chaos from overwhelming me.
I’ve been enjoying the current project, though it has been a struggle some days to get words. I’m on the turn with it and started a new section, which will help with writing.
I will have something out soon about it, though I’m finding it difficult to put a few things in words on this blog as well as other places I post, Instagram, Twitter, but I promise I’ll keep going with the blog. It keeps me focused in a way that I haven’t been and it gives me a place to vent as well as to keep things focused. It also gives me a schedule to follow, which is becoming more important.
When I don’t follow a schedule, things go off the rails. I’ve missed the gym this week because I’ve been bartending. I need those events, but I also need the structure and regiments of the gym to keep me going. It gives me structure and focus.
But have a great weekend.
