I’ve got these fucking FEELINGS about alcohol today. 447 days sober and all I want is to drink because I think it will be fun and interesting.
I loved myself before I had proof. And now I love myself, and the proof is revealing itself right in front of my eyes, in every aspect of my life.
A part of me inside is screaming, “QUIT TELLING THE INTERNET YOUR BUSINESS! YOU’RE GOING TO WANT TO DRINK AGAIN, BUT YOU’VE ALREADY PROCLAIMED YOUR SAINTLY SOBRIETY! IT’S GOING TO BE SO EMBARRASSING WHEN YOU TAKE THAT NEXT DRINK!”

I just finished reading Michael A. Singer’s The Surrender Experiment, in which the author decides to stop making decisions based on his internal likes and dislikes, and instead just say yes to whatever the flow of life brings him.
I’m 90 days sober. I feel pretty great. I have learned to deal with a lot of things that previously I required alcohol for. Simple things like working and going out to eat. I am writing this in case you are curious about the experience of being sober.
If you want something, and you think about how you want it, you are sending a signal of “I don’t have this but I want it.” So the universe keeps delivering exactly that–a reality where[…]
Hi, I’m Jessica, and I’m a witch. I’m not a traditional witch by any means–I believe witchcraft is making magick in any way one sees fit. I don’t follow pagan holidays, I don’t worship specific[…]
As long as I can remember, I wanted to create my own stationery company. I fetishized office supplies, Hello Kitty, Lisa Frank, and trapper keepers. Infatuated with the privacy of a diary, the smell of[…]
I am so happy to be spending NYE doing things I’d love to be doing for all of 2015: hooping, writing, publishing books, listening to Nicki Minaj, making videos, meditating, and loving my wife and[…]
I began today by writing: “I am turning my phone off. I am turning Facebook and Twitter off. I am turning email off. I installed StayFocusd. I can use FB, twitter, and email combined for[…]
Kelly had a really bad earache and she’s not the type to go to the doctor. I did some brief googling, gathered that most earaches don’t need to be treated with antibiotics, and that there[…]
Summer is the perfect time to put philosophy into practice, especially if you’re into the philosophy of doing as little as possible and not giving a fuck. Here are a few ways I’m keeping cool.[…]
What if we really could be happy with what we have? What if we didn’t need to change our bodies, relationships, or bank accounts to feel good about our lives? What if we could just[…]
Welcome to Meditation 101, the remix. Behold, me as a real person. In this vlog I discuss how I got into meditation and what authors or ideas have helped me on my own spiritual journey.[…]
Download the audio on Bandcamp. Here is a quick guide if you are new to meditation or looking for ways to practice. First sit down. A chair, the floor, it doesn’t matter. It’s nice if[…]
I skipped writing Tuesday Tips this week because it felt more like work than art. “Why bother?” I asked myself. “Writing things down just pulls me out of the Now anyway.” I asked Kelly what[…]
In case you’ve been waiting in suspense, I failed my audition to be a kickboxing instructor. The specific feedback was, “technique was weak, no power, movement was not authentic to combat and timing was shaky.”[…]
