Introducing EAPAF

Today is the 4th day in a row of my Red X Writing Project. From here I am going to attempt to move more of my writing and focus to – which is an acronym for Ex Addicts Powerful AF. I need to remind myself how powerful it is to be an ex addict – and how I use my experiences to benefit others.

Back at it – after more driving, little sleep and a heavy (for me) workout. I need to remind myself of the following:

I am responsible for everything that happens to me. We all have and make choices – and those choices determine the life we live.

Getting ready to go out for my daily 2nd session of driving. Usually Friday nights are fairly busy, but since it is Easter weekend, it’s kind of unpredictable. Somewhat surprisingly holidays generally have not been good money for me at all. On Christmas morning, for instance, I did start driving at my normal time (around 3:45 am). I made 4 long trips to the airport – and received ZERO gratuities. Talk about the Christmas spirit …

On a related note, this morning I have 9 rides, including a few to the airport – you can probably guess how much I received in tips …. $0 … Happy Easter! (Please remember to tip your drivers – especially when they are super friendly and go out of their way to always load and unload all your luggage).

I’m really looking forward to writing at starting tomorrow … If you have ever had addiction issues (drugs (legal or illegal), alcohol, food, sex, whatever) – or know someone who has, I would love to hear from you. It would be really cool to be able to share with my readers whatever part of your story you are willing – as well as your victories, challenges and how you ‘manage’ these addictive tendencies. For now, you can contact Joe Connector Kennedy here.

Muchas gracias mis amigos – y’all are AWESOME – and Powerful AF!

Here’s a little add-on note / personal gem: I really like this band / duo called 21 Pilots. Tyler leads and Josh kills it on the drums. Tyler writes and sings a lot about depression and (possibly) mental illness. I came across this song today called Screen – and the chorus that says “We Are Broken People” really stood out. We might be broken, but we can still have redeeming qualities and be kind and helpful to each other. I’d love to hear your thoughts on the band and this song:
