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 Saturday

It's that time of the week again! It's been a big one for me, both in terms of business and events/changes.

Success Stories:
I've continued resisting my urges to burn.
I had some difficult conversations.
During an in-depth conversation with a friend, it was brought to my attention how far I've come in terms of handling conversations.
I walked away from some toxic relationships.
Going to an AA meeting.
I made my travel wants/needs met with the travel agent and booked my flights!
I took on a spider and won!
I joined a forum to deal with some stuff that I'm ready to take steps on again.

Gratitudes/Happy Things:
My friends
Having trust placed in me (scary, but awesome too)
My trip!
Giraffes, of course.

Challenge and cheer-leading statements:
So many people would not have put their faith in me if I wasn't capable of doing a good job.
Just like I am responsible for my emotions (as well as thoughts and actions), others are responsible for theirs.
It's not about the destination, it's about the journey.
I choose what defines me.

Don't forget to post up your own version of Sanguine Saturday (any day, any format as long as it's positive-focused!) and shoot me the link! If you're joining us in this challenge, I want to know about it. Finally, of course, don't forget to check out this week's list of Sanguine Saturday versions:
Sairs of This Lunatic Express with Positives

Take care of yourselves until next time, and may we all find our own small fences along the way.

  2. Did it:

  3. Hi there! I've heard so much about you from Sairs and d'Arty that I thought I should come visit. I did my own list of positives yesterday, it's at - such a great idea. I'm going to keep following you now I've finally stopped by. Always great to find another friend in the "madosphere"... Lil xx

  4. Hi d'Arty, Borderline Lil, it's nice to meet you both, and welcome! I'll be linking you both in the Sanguine Saturday I'm about to post, and I just wanted to say both thank you for passing along the links and to let you know I'm delighted to have you along for the ride!
