This blog is part of my recovery, and I would like it to remain a safe place for me to share parts of myself and my life that people close to me may or may not know. As a result, while I'm not going crazy with privacy settings, I do ask that if you find this on your own and suspect you may know me, please respect my privacy by checking with us before reading any further. This obviously doesn't apply if one of us has given you the link!

Sanguine Sunday: Better Late Than Never

This week's Sanguine Saturday post has been a real struggle, definitely the hardest one since I started this blog. Things are pretty shaky.... but I'm still here.

I have a Great Things post to share, courtesy of my lovely friend Sonya, over at My Verse. She took up the challenge and posted her version of Sanguine Saturday this week... who will join us next week? If you join the challenge and blog your own version of a Sanguine Saturday, don't forget to share the link with me so I can link you next week.

Success Stories:
I'm still alive.
I'm posting this - late on Sunday evening but still on the weekend.
I had some very authentic conversations with good friends.
I wrote two journal entries, despite major difficulty starting. And I intend to build on those.
I am currently sober.

Gratitudes/things that make me happy:
Good friends who provide invaluable support, love and acceptance.
Platypuses. Because I can find them everywhere!

Challenge and cheer-leading statements:
SI or lack of SI is not a reliable indicator of how I feel.
I can survive anything I choose to survive.

Take care of yourselves until next time, and may we all find our own small fences along the way. And don't forget to blog your own version of Sanguine Saturday this week! ;)


  1. lol, because platypuses are everywhere. that's awesome.

  2. Well, *some* people who shall remain nameless have a thing for certain animals that I'm quite convinced don't even actually *exist* because I cannot find anything with one on it *anywhere*. ;)



  4. :P *disbelieves*
    You will just have to come here, take me to WA and prove it!

  5. I always love reading these posts. I love platypuses too because they are different like me :)

  6. I just did a Sanguine Monday - does that count :)


  7. Fantastic, Sairs! Of course it counts, that's excellent, thank you for joining in! Positives posted are still your own version of SS, no matter what day they're posted!

  8. Yay for scrapbooking/cardmaking/crafting! Creating heals the soul!
