Fireworks

The 4th of July has always been one of my favorite holidays. As for most, I assume, the fireworks shows are the main attraction. They are so beautiful, like exploding flowers in the sky.

They touch something somewhere deep down inside, ya know? It’s like once a year, for a brief moment in time, I’m transported back to childhood where things are simple and uncomplicated. It’s just pure joy…. [read more]

I hate cleaning windows, screens, lenses and other glass items. It’s a pain and it’s tiring to my arms. The thing I hate cleaning most of all are the windows in my vehicle. It’s annoying to have to contort myself around the steering wheel to clean all the way down to that cramped area way at the bottom where the windshield meets the dashboard. Another irritating task is cleaning eye glass lenses that always seem to get smudged.

A New Way To Understand Addiction

A New Way To Understand Addiction - Unbroken Brain: A Revolutionary New Wya of Understanding Addiction by Maia Szalavitz

Hardcover: 352 pages
Publisher: St. Martin’s Press (April 5, 2016)
Language: English

“Szalavitz is one of the bravest, smartest writers about addiction anywhere. Everything she writes should be read carefully — I guarantee you’ll have a lot to think about.” — Johann Hari, New York Times bestselling author of Chasing the Scream

Addiction (no matter which form it takes) is something that is everywhere around us. No matter who you are or where you live, chances are that you know someone who struggles with some sort of addiction to drugs, alcohol, sex, gambling or other substances or behaviors, even if it’s a silent struggle that no one else other than the person suffering through it knows about.

I found it to be an interesting perspective, as proposed by author, Maia Szalavitz in her new book Unbroken Brain: A Revolutionary New Way of Understanding Addiction, that addiction is not something that is medically or psychologically based but a learning disorder (one more like autism, ADHD or dyslexia than cancer or Alzheimer’s). The more I think about it, I feel that this may be the best way to look at the issue.

Consider this, humans are a species that is in constant evolution. We are constantly learning, processing, making inferences and drawing conclusions from new information with which we are presented on a daily basis. From the moment we draw our first breath until we gasp our last we are learning, adapting and changing. … [read more]
