Come Fly With Me

2 of my cats, contemplating

They protect the house for me while I'm gone and I really appreciate that.

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

for the 30 people who celebrated a combined total of 346 years of sobriety on Saturday Night at Lambda Center - they all celebrated January sober dates

for a nice weekend inside my head; completely free of the desire or need to isolate from other humans

that I am becoming more aware of the external events and situations that trigger me into isolating. My therapist is helping me to recognize these before they happen and we are coming up with little ways to prevent me from getting to "that bad place." Basically, it's like an advanced course in Awareness and Action. It will require help from others. Imagine that. I may have to ask a friend to help me sometime.

that I am trying to get a handle on the connection between selfishness and motives

that I am still willing to attend some Al-Anon meetings and they are always worthwhile

Yup, I've been looking at my motives for doing things lately, someone said to me "...if we waited for our motives to be pure, we'd never do anything..."
You are an inspiration to me :)

Glad to see you have guard cats.

Those persons, places and things and situations that can knock me for a loop are hard to define and even harder to deal with.

Glad you are making progress.
