Inmatezwife got me----Here are the rules, word for word from her blog...

  • Link to the person’s blog who tagged you.
  • Post these rules on your blog.
  • List seven random and/or weird facts you have learned in recovery.
  • Tag seven random [?] people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs
  • Let each person know that they have been tagged by posting a comment on their blog

Lets play now, whadda you say.................... Oh all right, maybe if I focus on something else besides "poor me", I'll actually feel better!

1. I have learned that I am not different, unique or the 'only one who thought this way! I am, however, still special!

2. The more I think I know, the more I realize how much I actually still have to learn .

3. As crazy as I thought I was when I was still using, I have come to believe that I could only get crazier if I chose to use again.

4. In my old and very materialistic world I thought the one who died with the most stuff I know that the one who dies with the most stuff is just dead when they die.

5. My search to be happy by looking outside myself has brought me to looking within where my spirituality is- and THAT makes me happy.

6. I always thought I was born bad, I am bad now and I'll always be bad. I know now that I was born pure and good, I did some bad things and I'm not so bad after all.

7. I may grumble and groan and throw pity parties for me, myself and I, but it is so much better to laugh and play with friends.

So here are the friends I am inviting to come and play with me , and no, I am not putting the links here, because they are all in my side bar, and besides, I don't know how to put the link thingies in my post the way some of y'all do!..

1. Sharon- from Fellow Traveler 2. Judith- from Vicarious Rising 3. Lounge Daddy- from Lounge Daddy Chronicles 4. Shannon - from Todaay 5. Pam -from Sobriety is Exhausting 6. dAAve -from Higher Powered and last, but not least, 7. Scott W. -from Attitude of Gratitude.

So that is it for today folks! I haven't been feeling that great lately, ya know, stuck in myself, but I am glad that I checked in, amazing how that works sometimes!

Good list.
I may try to get around to doing this soon. Maybe.

Syd said...

It is a good list. I don't want any toys when I die. Just throw an oyster roast.

Shannon said...

Hey Lush-ous! I relate with #6 on your list- "I always thought I was born bad, I am bad now and I'll always be bad. I know now that I was born pure and good, I did some bad things and I'm not so bad after all.
" I learned this too !!!

Hiya! I got tagged on this one earlier, and it was hard for me to do. Not that I am not grateful, but I've been a tad grumpy of late. It was a good exercise for that very reason.

I miss your regular posts. Hope all is well.

Hey Lushgirl, Hope you are ok. I have started blogging again. Would like to hear from you. I find it amazing that on this blog you have the AA Promises and I started my "come back" blog with the promise. So damned it, that proves neither is unique.
Keep Trudging.

Sam said...

Hey there! I'm Sam, one of the many who Micky graced in his list. Please pardon my putting the same comment on your site that I've put on so many others.

I've copied his list (with some omission of content!) and posted in on my site, You might want to take a look, for there are 82 blogs listed there. You're bound to find a new friend to follow. Also, I'm offering to everyone the code to put the same list in a post on their site. Lastly, there's a non-link to Micky's site, where folks can post a thank you to him for his service. After all, he really helped us out by compiling this list!

Take good care!

It always creeps me out when people tell me they think they were born bad. Then I hear of all the negative messages they got as kids and we have to go through the whole rewiring process, a lot harder than anyone could imagine, but maybe people in recovery get it better than everyone else.
