Queens and more ...


I invest my time in what I truly love. Step Eleven is a discipline that allows me and my Higher Power to be together, reminding me that, with God's help, intuition and inspiration are possible. Practice of the Step brings on self-love. In a consistent attempt to improve my conscious contact with a Higher Power, I am subtly reminded of my unhealthy past, with its patterns of grandoise thinking and false feelings of omnipotence. When I ask for the power to carry out God's will for me, I am made aware of my powerlessness. Humility and a healthy self-love are compatible, a direct result of working Step Eleven.

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

for the progress I see in myself as well as so many others

that mistakes can usually be corrected

tha Scott is taking care of himself today

that my friend Bob is back at meetings and lunch -- what a treat!

that I went to see a movie by myself for the first time in probably 30 years -- I saw The Queen and loved it!

that I have the choice of NOT listening to someone else's favorite music when I surf the blogosphere -- alas, the road gets narrower!

Whenever you do a thing, act as if all the world were watching.

I think I might go see "the queen" by myself too.

Good list, too.

Seeing a movie solo is very cool, I'd say it is empowering. Did you order popcorn and a Frosty Freeze?

Hey...are you knocking my ambient, mood setting, background music? Just think of it as the movies. What would a movie be without background music?

I haven't seen a movie solo since getting sober. Used to be one of my favorite things to do. And I want to see The Queen. Thanks for the idea!

Thanks for the post, now I have to find out about the movie, cause I am movie illiterate, till they hit TV....

Oh, and that was quick of you, but I'll bet it is not 33 degrees there.
