    I can leverage my sobriety into the life I want to live, just for today, one day at a time. I leverage my clear mind and strong finances to life my dreams. I am very grateful for the lever.

  • charlie commented on the post, covert 6 years, 7 months ago

    If I could be a spy and go undercover, I’d plan the most covert operation on the planet. To stop greedy people everywhere, who would rather lie to your face then part with a cent. I would spy, gather intel and move in for the conviction. Meanest person on the planet. Not the title I want for myself, so I’ll just do my best to love everyone.

    If I had a blasted hammer, I’d damn well blast it in the evening and all over this dag blasted land! Now I gotta think of more dang blasted humorous(less) comments to blast my insane brain into submission.

    The terrain today was a challenge. To merely write these two sentences have been a major challenge, but like all good all terrain vehicles, that I am, I pushed on through.

  • charlie commented on the post, weakling 6 years, 7 months ago

    I am not a weakling, she said. How dare you say such a thing. I only cry when I’m sad, not when I’m angry. That makes me cool, to show my feelings for a cool subject, not you. Are we done yet.

  • charlie commented on the post, bleeding 6 years, 7 months ago

    Bleeding hearts know that feelings can kill you on the inside. Yes, I am a bleeding heart, but I don’t let it kill me anymore. I just focus on the healing of the internal wounds of suffering for too long.

    Oh, wow, you startled me, Startled. You seem so unlike yourself these days. Have you found the new job, new wife, where is your life? Ah, what a wonderful surprise you are and you just startle me.

  • charlie commented on the post, leathery 6 years, 8 months ago

    Leathery, like skin. She has leathery skin? Didn’t we just have a word similar? The leathery man, has lead a full and fruitful life, may be he should write about it? Make it into a three act play about the hero’s journey.

  • charlie commented on the post, weathered 6 years, 8 months ago

    She had a weathered look about her, as would have been said in the old days; She looks like she was rode hard and put up wet. Yes she had weathered life’s difficulties.

  • charlie commented on the post, fatigue 6 years, 8 months ago

    Am I tired, I don’t think so, but I am a bit undone at believing in a project but not having the energy to see it through. I feel fatigued like I’ve been running uphill. I’d like to stop trying so hard and just let go.

  • charlie commented on the post, willed 6 years, 8 months ago

    I willed myself to be positive to think happy thoughts, to live in the belief that the glass is always half full. I will myself not to sink into the negative to believe the worse and to feel helpless. I live in a world that is on my side and I have to will myself to believe this and help it be successful, healthy and true.

  • charlie commented on the post, flat 6 years, 8 months ago

    Wow, am I flat out lost. It’s so flat here that there isn’t a rolling hill anywhere. I’m thinking flat bread, I’m think the plains of south dakota where I may be moving to. I’m flat concerned.

  • charlie commented on the post, society 6 years, 8 months ago

    Society smiciety. You call this a society. Bah, humbug! We don’t care about one another, just get me my new car, big arse house and 2.5 children and I can die happy. Starving children, homeless, jails, deforestation. Not my problem, I don’t live in a society, I live for me.

  • charlie commented on the post, plays 6 years, 8 months ago

    Plays, not usually my gig, but look at the word? Plays. Yes, I play well with others usually and I really like the leisurely activities of life. I am really enjoying being paid to play.

  • charlie commented on the post, growing 6 years, 8 months ago

    I’m growing like a weed, into a person of quality and insight. Fun loving and loving are some of the ways that I have grown. No longer fearful and living in the moment. I have grown successfully and keep growing into infinite.

  • charlie commented on the post, think 6 years, 8 months ago

    I think therefore I am. I loved that I learned early in recovery that 90% of my problems were in my thinking, so now whenever things aren’t going my way, I can look at the situation and realize that it’s my thinking that’s causing most or all of the problems.

  • charlie commented on the post, husband 6 years, 8 months ago

    I know a husband, he is my dad. He was an okay husband, but a not so good father because of his wife and maybe his own flaws and misconceptions. I don’t want or need a husband, except to lift heavy stuff or change the tire.

  • charlie commented on the post, wall 6 years, 8 months ago

    We all have walls and there are walls to climb over or to erect. I prefer walls that protect, but don’t keep me from understanding and engaging and communicating. I love seeing walls with murals, which is a metaphor of some kind.

  • charlie commented on the post, systems 6 years, 8 months ago

    I think systems have some good and bad atttibutes. I like creating systems to get things done. I don’t like entrenched institutionalized systems like our political system because people feel like they can’t do anything about it and that it’s just the way it is. A frocking system that is broken.

  • charlie commented on the post, features 6 years, 8 months ago

    I have seen features and have seen features. I really like features. I am a very visual person, but remember not to stare. I love features and have my favorite ideas for the features awards show. I don’t know why I felt inclined to see how many times I could say it.
