It’s difficult to reconcile familiarity with a skirt from a second-hand store with the fact that I’ve never owned it before. Nevertheless – I am most certain that this is a long lost skirt of mine – even though I’ve owned it for less than 48 hours.
Does everyone in early sobriety – or anyone anywhere – experience strange bouts of deja-vu, synchronicities, and internal ‘pushes’? By push, I mean just that – it feels like I’m being gently pushed toward some ideas and – or – to do some things. For example – I felt the push to stop at a second-hand store to look at clothes – something I never do. And the idea to take my dog to work has been ebbing to the forefront of my mind all week. I’ve been very aware of pushing it back – out of the way, but I finally relented this morning and took him. And for some weird reason – I could feel that it was the right thing to do.
What IS that?
My new sober lifestyle is bringing fun and mysterious perks I couldn’t have anticipated.
I wonder what’s going to happen next?
