Liquid courage

10 years ago….it was a gin and tonic. with two limes. or a long island ice tea for really big nights. that’s all i needed (really I just needed Jesus) to rally for life some nights. this sounds like i had a drinking problem, which i didn’t. i was just an introvert trying to be an extrovert and constantly putting myself in anxiety causing situations. and the only coping mechanism i had was a little cocktail to take the edge off. you know….so i could “be myself.” obviously ridiculous. anyway. that’s not the point.

the point is that this morning…i needed coffee. and the phrase liquid courage popped into my head. that’s all i need now to get through my days. coffee. and Jesus.
