Reminders


todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

for a fine meeting about Step 4 yesterday -- it gave me the following reminders ...

...a reminder of the term "index of maladjustments"
...a reminder that I will never have enough
...a reminder of the common symptoms of emotional insecurity (worry, anger, self-pity, depression)
...a reminder that my ego insists on dominating others OR depending on them far too much

for an hour with my therapist that went much too quickly

for lunch with friends -- a particular event that has become a holiday tradition now (for me)

a busy, yet relaxed afternoon and evening with Hayden

You can't stop the waves, but you can learn to surf.

yeh.. an extra snowcone or two wouldn't go amiss.. perhaps next christmas! you never know!!

Glad you're having fun. I know it's considered deeply politically incorrect in AA to say this, but I don't rate therapists. I just have arrived at the conclusion that we can do a much better job on our own. thats all. but I am aware that this represents a minority view in aa. Oh well! I don't mind being in the minority though. Just as well!
Enough! I should be studying!!!!
Hayden looks fabulous by the way. (!!!) Nice to see you Hayden! Have a great time!

I thought my hour with the therapist went quickly too, til I realized it was only a 45 minute session!

I'll be offline for a spell.... so let me say right now:

MERRY CHRISTMAS, dAAve!
