My old friend the blues …

Day 428

“Just when every ray of hope was gone
I should have known that you would come along
I can’t believe I ever doubted you
My old friend the blues”
         –Steve Earle

Whenever I have a thought or snippet of an idea to blog about, I put it into a draft post.

I love Steve Earle, and have often played this song over the years to wallow in my sorrowful feelings.  I thought of the song, and put the song/lyrics into my stockpile of draft posts. I did that on Day 127 of my sobriety. That was 301 days ago!

I realized how far I have come in managing my own blues since that draft. And I’m kind of loving myself for remaining strong enough not to let blue feelings derail me – and cause me to go for numbing (wine).

Decided to create and post this.

I am so thankful that I’ve not felt that low in a long time. (Or at least I am now able to manage feeling that low without resorting to drinking!)
