FREEDOM MONTH: DAY 23: “Freedom is the will to be responsible for ourselves.”― Friedrich Nietzsche

This Is It! We are free when we learn to let go of blaming the world for our shit. When we stop being victims all the time and own our lives as if they were the greatest gift we could have received…Hint: they ARE!

Everything matters, everything we do and say and have ever been and done…all of it! It is energy sent into the Universe and there is nothing that can be done about it. We learn to live and own ourselves, all of our actions and beliefs and ideas and behaviors.

When that happens, we are free to do what we want and stop reacting to the world around us. Period. THAT is what this whole thing is about. To find a connection with that inner essence that comes from or is part of or the totality of a Higher Being…what I call Universal Power. With that connection, we are free from every single thing Ego brings to us.

Things like comparison, competition, fighting, scarcity, fear, anger, rage, you get the gist. ALL of it!

So, that being said, I am concluding today’s writing and signing off. The Universe has gifted me with a lot of other wonderful opportunities to live into. I am not feeling this work any longer. If I do, I will send out an occasional piece, but I have become repetitive to myself. I am no longer feeling excited about this writing and am working on some other things that feel more in line with what I want to be doing. I have loved staying in touch here with fellow recovery friends, clients, people from various parts of my life in the last 35 years. You are not forgotten, you never were. I will just be with you in another space now. I am going to maintain my website for a bit longer, probably until the domain name comes due to renewal next April. So, if you want to read any of these, there are 5 years of pretty consistent pieces on there. They have all been posted each day. Website is: Thanks for the daily fun!

I am a therapist and counselor with long-term recovery from addictions and personal trauma. My writing reflects these experiences and the road I have traveled in 12-Step recovery settings, along with the work I have done for over 30 years in the field. My love of dolphins includes the stories of them being healers in places all over the world. I long to offer every broken spirit and body the experience of a healing hug. May my words and stories inform, uplift and delight your spirit and soothe your weary heart.
