This Week’s Ted Tool Resource

This week, Ted would like to recommend two essays from guest Sean Mahoney’s blog, seanologues.com. First is A Hot Mess, Now At Room Temperaturea piece in which Sean discusses the idea that things aren’t always perfect, even with sustained success in recovery. “I woke up today happy and well rested. Yet I realize that this is all a moment-by-moment proposition all contingent on how I take care of myself.”

The second essay is Eventually, You’ll Think About Your Ass, a humorous reflection on accepting the things one cannot change. In it, Sean says, “Despite having the interests of a 13 year-old girl and the mental focus of a 22-year-old, I have to accept that I’m aging.” Sean recommends this piece as his personal favorite from 2017.
