Drunkless

Letting others see in, so we can see out.

We are Recovering alcoholics and addicts, and these are mini-chapters of our lives. Here, we are learning to live a life of choice; we're learning to live Drunkless.

We'll share in our writings, in our podcasts, in our photos, art, and music -- our creativity will show who we are, what we're going through, and how we make it -- 24 hours at a time.

Flow

By: Anonymous

Take time to do what makes your soul happy

I've heard this called "flow."

Flow happens when whatever we're doing comes so enjoyably and easily that time is literally altered.

Like when we were kids, playing football or volleyball in the church yard, and suddenly, it was dark out, and we hadn't realized we'd been playing for hours.  It didn't feel like it, save maybe a minor bruise or two.

Or when I'm playing on the piano, and half a day goes by, and I squirm in pain on the bench because I hadn't been to the bathroom yet.

Or when I'm working on a drawing, and six or seven hours have gone by, and I'm suddenly realizing that I'm shaking because I hadn't eaten for the day.

It doesn't matter whether it is working on my deck, my car, writing, singing, walking, motorcycle riding, videos, podcasting, etc., when I'm in the flow, time changes.  What may seem like minutes turned into hours, and sometimes, what seems like hours has only been minutes.

This is an important observation to notice, because when time alters, we're going somewhere else; we're in the flow.

Time is an important therapy for those of us in recovery.  It's a must if we want to be serene and at peace.  We must take the time to make our souls happy, to get into the flow once in a while.  How we choose to spend that time is what will determine how happy our soul is.

Take the time.  Make it happen.  Do what makes your soul happy.

Drunkless does not intended to diagnose, treat, or resolve any alcoholic or addiction condition in any way, shape or form.  Drunkless deals primarily with chemical addictions and aims to share the experience, strength, and hope of our bloggers, podcasters, and associated guests and visitors.  Though we recognize and realize that there are many forms of addiction and mental disorders, we are not experienced nor educated in ways where we can advise or give feedback on many of them.  As such, it is up to our visitors to discern the differences and to take appropriate action to seek help for themselves or loved ones.  However, we do hope to provide a glimpse into the correlation between some of them and hopefully allow someone a "one-up" on getting help before it becomes life threatening -- after all, that is our goal -- to provide hope where we can, and possibly save a life.

The authors, podcasters, artists, creativists, and other "hosts" on this site do it therapeutically, educationally, inspirationally, and to share their experience, strength and hope, as well as for entertainment... After all, we are not a glum lot.
