Blog post summary picture

Tuesday I became a dad.  Yesterday was my one year anniversary with my amazing and supportive wife.  Today is my first Father's  Day with our five day old baby girl Zoey and on Tuesday we will be purchasing a condo in Hawaii (yes Hawaii) where we moved a few months ago.  To say my life is a miracle is an understatement; and with the gift I have an opportunity to share it with others in hopes of helping, inspiring,or perhaps creating a little more ease in ones life.  If you are struggling - I get it. I did too.  For most of my life.  What I know is that you have to want this.  With a true desire to change your life, a support system and a higher power - you can and will get better.  I offer you how i worked the steps as you must do the work also to get better.  Faith without works in dead.

If I feel it, then it must be true.

I am an alcoholic. I drank alcoholically all the time. That is an excellent name for my condition. It helps to know the name of the problem, but it does not fix it. I have to have a spiritual awakening to fix it, and I can achieve that by doing the steps. The steps have one promise and one promise only. The result of these steps is a spiritual awakening. That will fix the alcoholic problem.

I suffer from Narcissistic Injuries all the time. That is an excellent name for my sensitive nature. Narcissistic Injury – a psychological term - taking personally utterly indifferent and objective events. I do that when my sense of self is fragile and when I depend on life going my way all the time. It helps to have a name, but that does not fix it. I have to do something to fix it.
