Good times, what a blessing! Nov. 2012 ( oa essay )

Good times... ©copyright2013owpp

Good times…

This essay was coming out of the low moments as a result of doing what I have most pleasure in doing. Writing and painting and sharing it on the blog. Music and photography will have to wait until I start feeling more comfortable with those .

Good times

Does it occur to us that sometimes our writings have a tremendous amount of despair or self-abuse described?
Writing is for everyone liberating. It is the first thing that comes to our mind when hurt gnaws at us. At the end of the page we feel cleansed.
But could we focus for once on the times rays of rationality beam through? The days we tuck in fourteen hours of work, feel tired but so alive?
Get so absorbed in our task that we forget about food and eat solely for the physical energy. What a blessing, what a truce! So much easier than the fight.
What about the enthusiasm, the love and joy we spread around, the closeness to our cherished ones and the protective wings we encircle them with, the peace felt, by doing small and seemingly insignificant tasks that feel grand to us?
Small is sometimes big.
Is that not a far brighter subject?
The saying goes “without obscurity we would not see the light“
Appreciation comes from the lack of… Had we not gone without in the past, how could we know what is here now?

This essay is dedicated to all those in recovery. To a world of people who have the courage and audacity to face and work on their imperfections, which everyone has.

To them I bow and wish to give an apercu, a glimmer of what can be, with a bit of tenacity.

Be strong, do not bend to what you would call our darker moments yet, be flexible and undulate with the current, it will lead you to quiet sparkles, to serene bliss and undetected Nirvana.

Can we believe? I do.

That is the journey I took many years ago. Every year I believe I have found all the truth that exists and every year I am proved wrong. There is always some more…

There are many ways that lead to Rome. To a few, it will be wisdom, others, knowledge or experience, which is the best teacher of all, it will lead you to the light brought by comprehension… To that instant of clarity, the split second where it all fits…

The doors open and you walk in a state of…

Life is worth living for, the past trials were all worth it, for this inner-discovery. No loud trumpets, no explosive fireworks, just, THIS… NOW…

And that is all that matters.

Holidays plan of action :)

Happy holidays! ©copyright2013owpp

Happy holidays!

Someone asked me for suggestions before the holidays ( food wise. ) We all need to condition, to prepare ourselves mentally to the ” in case ” or the ” what if ” scenario.

We have all been there 🙂

I found myself typing frantically, not being able to stop and realized I was actually preparing myself… And as I have been asked to post more oa articles, I thought, why not use this for my blog?


Plan of action

My best advice for a consistent plan of action is,

1st. To ask our higher power to take away the craziness we have in our heads toward food.

2nd. To do what we love doing besides our job 🙂 this was my saviour.

3rd. To try not to be too dependent on people to fix our problems. I always thought the
answer was always going to come from an outside factor eg. some magical word my sponsor
would say that would pull me out of the hell hole I had created for myself.
The only person capable of doing so, is oneself.

4th. To differentiate between the foods that are mine and those that are not
is a priority. It is what we call recovery.
Once we have that awareness, we are on the right track and miracles happen.

5th. Last but not least, to be aware and have the knowledge that no matter how big is our
moment of weakness, NEVER under no circumstances take that ( stupid, crazy ) bite. It is
NOT worth it!
We are giving strength to something that hasn’t. So, let’s keep it that way. Keep it the way
it is in reality, not what our minds desperately want us to fabricate and believe.

What do they say ? Repetition is the only form of consistency we can achieve.
As we repeat, we train ourselves into new habits. Maybe it’s bringing back old, long buried
good habits, who knows? We were not born thinking crazy!

However. Remember one last thing before holidays starts. Whatever happens, if we ever slip in
the tiniest way, let’s not fall into the trap of blowing the whole situation out of proportion.
I went there, it’s a big down slide and it’s not pretty! We are talking about FOOD not major
The less we exaggerate the situation, the more likely we are to spring back up and resume our sane

Have a happy holiday!
