I am excited to be returning to the Blogging from A to Z challenge, celebrating its 10th Anniversary. My first foray into this challenge was in 2014. Many of my posts through this journey may include a video of a song associated with the words. I am a little late to the party because this week I have been dealing with a lot of chronic lumbar spine and dual hip pain issues. Which in turn is causing a bit of depression which of course both of these things are triggers for my alcoholism – or as my chemical dependency counselor would say – a reason to drink. The good news is that I have not drank and I am just about to 90 days.
Abracadabra, what a great word. We think that if say abracadabra and wave a wand of some sort, then whatever we are wanting will magically appear. Especially when we are dealing with any type of illness, pain, mental health issues or addiction to alcohol or drugs. We hope everything will disappear if we wave that wand. Well that does not happen, often we have to work for the magic to happen and sometimes the magic cannot even happen.
But the important thing to remember is that if we are willing to do the work and follow our physician’s orders then perhaps the abracadabra will happen. One of my favorite songs associated with the word abracadabra is the Steve Miller Band song of the same word “Abracadabra” from 1982. I have included for your enjoyment.
That’s what’s in “My Rattled Cage”, thanks for stopping by!!!
