Todays, Writing 101 assignment is what I basically do when I am not writing or what I do in my “day-to-day” life. To tell you the truth, my day-to-day life is pretty boring.
Like most everyone else in the world, I work. I work at a mental health agency part time as a Consumer Aide. I also volunteer at two different places; one is a peer run Warm Line (which is a conversational line) and the other is at young adult (18-25) homeless shelter. I spend a lot of time with my fiancé, Junior. I tend to hang out with friends as our schedules allow. I attend sporting events and concerts. I also read. Most importantly I make sure that I do what I need to do to stay in recovery.
For me recovery is the biggest and most important thing I can do to keep myself balanced. My recovery is a one day at time thing and sometimes a one moment at a time thing. To stay in recovery, I eat on the regular basis, take my meds, exercise, see my therapist regularly, see my psychiatric nurse practitioner regularly and just have fun.
Now that you know how I keep a balanced life outside of writing/blogging, I am going to go spend some much needed time with Junior. We are going to have some cuddle time. Have a wonderful evening. Peace Out!!!
