So I was cleaning out my room (because I go to college next week), and I found my Mia cosplay in the mess, and I managed to find every piece except my Magatama which makes me really sad because I actually bought that with my own money.

I haven’t touched any cosplay since the beginning of July at Anime Expo but I thought I should put this on for old times sake (since my hair is starting to revert back to Mia hair again)

I have found myself slipping into my old way of thinking this week. I don’t like it. I haven’t thought of drinking but I know that if I don’t get a grip on this I will soon start.

I was such an angry and bitter person when I was active in my addiction and I never want to go back to that. I’ve made tremendous strides in my recovery the last few months. I almost never think about drinking and I have gotten better at looking on the bright side and finding the positive in everything. I want to continue moving forward, but in order to do so I must have a plan for when times get tough. I can’t just sit here waiting for everything to get better. I did that for years and we all know how that turned out. So here it is……

Lena’s “Don’t just sit there like a dumbass, do something” Plan of Action”

·NEGATIVE THINKING PRODUCES NEGATIVE RESULTS. I must force the negativity from my thoughts. They are neither healthy nor productive. Replace negative thoughts with positive thoughts. Make a gratitude list.

·LET GO AND LET GOD. Pray/meditate more. Set aside a few minutes everyday to spend with my Higher Power. It always makes for a better day.

·IDLE HANDS ARE THE DEVIL’S WORKSHOP. Stay busy. Stay productive. Find something to do other than think thoughts. Make something, write something, call a friend, go for a walk, etc.

·SERENITY PRAYER. It always turns a stressful situation into a tolerable situation. Say it as many times as it takes!

So that’s my action plan. I’ve put it in writing and I know what I have to do. Now I just have to do it!
