my life of *else*

cross-posted at my StumbleUpon blog

~~~

in speaking at length with a friend this week, in his wisdom, he shared with me that most addicts live in a life of "else" -- wanting to be someone else, somewhere else, doing something else...you get the picture.

in going over my flickr pics, i found a collage of family photos that were needed for my in-laws 50th wedding anniversary slide show. in looking at my pics, this senior pic of me in particular, i saw someone who was hopeful and full of promise, looking toward a future that was unknown, scary and thrilling at the same time.

it was then, my senior year, that i picked up my first glass of alcohol (it was probably something like a white russian or equally as girlie) . how could i know that it would eventually totally change the course of my life?

(into something else.)

Now you are wanting to be who you are, the authentic you and you are working towards that and that you is still beautiful no doubt.
