The thing that pulled me back from the Dark places last December was just finding one thing every day to smile about. Not forcing myself to smile, mind you, but finding one thing, unrelated to everything (or very related to it) that made me smile regardless of how the rest of the day had progressed.

The more I did it, the easier it got to notice things, and the bigger the smiles got. So much so, that on the advice of a mutual friend of ours I started a second blog project which has been focusing on how powerful those things have gotten.

It's not a fast process, but it worked for me, and didn't involve alcohol (directly at least). :)

I feel like I've done a lot, but I get the sense that a lot of the work I've done should have been something I covered in my wee years. It's hard reaching my advanced age and having a sense that in some ways I'm stunted at 17, and in others at about 5. Yeah, I'm an adult and can live with that, but there are parts of me that just got left behind.

Man I hate baggage. And demons.

...And especially demons with baggage.
