Once in a While…

…it occurs to me that I could walk into the bar I used to go to any time and order a cheeseburger and a beer and they would give it to me for a nominal fee. Absolutely nothing prevents me from going back to who I used to be a year ago. When I am at home alone again, when a “friend” has cancelled plans with me again, when I wonder if I will ever be loved again, I very often miss the taste of a beer and a late night burger. Only my own willpower stands between me and this.

What holds us to the paths we choose, in the end, is almost nothing.

  1. To thine own self be true….
    This is really all we have when broken down. It is also the only thing we have of value; all else is just ‘fluff’.
    I do appreciate your attitude; it’s hard on our own. I believe most of us have been there, done that; it’s not a good place to be. The only way I know of to get through is just that! Toughing it out (if we have the strength) guarantees another day, another chance, another possibility. No up-beat phrases will you hear from me; that is until you’ve ‘come through’ and then my tune plays a sweeter note…!
