Notes from My Sofa

Notes from Sofa

Reader Alert:  Boring Post!

Nope, these notes are not really coming from my sofa, but I do get lots of my ideas while snuggled under 8 paws, 2 canine tails, and flopped on the soft cushions with the TV going for background noise, and my blanket for security.  With the validation I’ve received recently, and learning about some lies I never even dreamed existed, the last whimpering shreds of cognitive dissonance are gone up in vapor.  Hallelujah!

24 hours without cigarettes, and I’m not kidding myself they’ve released their hold.  3 nights of nothing taken for anxiety.  Multiple efforts at self-care going in tangent, with back-to-back appointments this week, and looking forward to a weekend visit from a friend, and a pub quiz later this month.  Little steps for DogDharma, giant leaps for healing.

Thanks to L for checking on me last night.

This has been my life up to now:

Freak Out

Feels wonderful to be (tentatively) rejoining the land of the living!

Did warn ya this was going to be a boring post!  🙂

About DogDharma

Dog Dharma is written by a human who loves dogs and who believes dogs have attained enlightenment. The human behind Dog Dharma came from humble origins, has faced many trials, enjoyed many adventures, and taken a path less traveled. He claims no special privilege or expertise, and remains humble. Dog Dharma‘s author has learned a few things along the way, and has much yet to learn. He has been told by many people that he has a talent for writing, and aspires to write a book, but is a little too lazy and disorganized, so his blog will suffice for now. He opens a window into his life in the hope that some of his words may be of comfort, some may be a beacon or warning, and perhaps he will connect with like-minded souls. Everything shared comes from a place of openness and honesty, but with no claim that he possesses the Truth. People and places mentioned should be taken as pseudonyms. In many cases, details may be an amalgamation of actual events disguised to protect the “innocent.” Nothing written is to be taken as actual fact, but as the author of Dharma Dog‘s limited understanding. From the mouths of the Beatles: In the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make

    Not boring at all my dear. Taking control is never boring, bumpy maybe but not boring. Good Luck with everything. I too have begun to take up the reins of living and comfort myself with the thought that if I fail then I will have done it – it won’t have been at anyone else’s hand, all me! Failure or success as far as I am concerned will be an achievement of sorts either way just by the very fact of having tried.


  2. I like your diagram!

    Also a nice image, you on your couch with all those paws!x

    Shameful admission — I “borrowed” the diagram, tj. But me and the paws on the sofa is real. I sometimes think I should give over the turf to them, as they are already making me the human pretzel. 🙂
