3 Things You Gain When You Get Healthy

The people around you will notice. They will. They’ll compliment you and it will fill you up. Positivity will fill you up so much you’ll feel like you’re floating. Then they’ll ask you about it and you’ll have something to be proud of and something to share. They might even be so inspired by the accomplishment that they have seen first hand that they will go home and make some changes of their own.

How I Decided to Give Up Alcohol

Every day that I don’t drink I feel like I’m winning something. I feel like I’m in some kind of un-official contest with myself and I’m always winning and every day I get a prize. Each day I add to the count is another prize. The prize of day 741 is adding 1 from 740. Every time I think about having a drink while I’m out with friends or I feel like I am missing out on something I remember how far I have come and how long it’s been.

When you blame the Universe you give up control over yourself. Casting blame at the Universe means that you have allowed yourself to believe that God (or some higher spirit) has aimed an arrow of misfortune directly at you. And if the Universe is the only source of your suffering then it becomes the only source of relief. You’ll always be waiting for it to swoop in and save you. That’s nihilistic and unhealthy because then because then it's "Well why do anything at all if it's not up to me?" Having some accountability is extremely empowering. Once you recognize and own your decisions you will take back control over your ability to change the outcome.

Schedule

Here is my schedule for the rest of the summer. Where I plan to be and when. Of course things are always subject to change. I spent an extra day in Burlington because I liked it so much. So, each city should be give or take a few. If you have any suggestions on what to do, recommendations on where to go, or if you just want to catch up and say hey while I'm in town, you can let me know in the comments section or contact page.
