I will not regret the past ...


I was fortunate to get to meet some fellow recovering bloggers last night.





left to right:

Anonymous Biker...a.k.a. Mike
Sobriety is Exhausting...a.k.a. Pam
Attitude of Gratitude...a.k.a. Scott W
yours truly (and sincerely)


todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that Scott and I got to attend an AA meeting with Pam, her daughter and Mike and then go for a coffee at Starbucks and be joined by Matt

that if I am working my recovery program the way I want to, my recognition of powerlessness will always be a reminder of my past and a reasonable guess at my future

that I am really really trying to practice what I teach

that having a level playing field is all in my mind - it's all about attitude

that Hayden treats me better than I treat myself

that my friends treat me better than I treat myself - wassup with that?

that tomorrow is hAAlf nAAked thursdAAy - join us!

Most people want to be delivered from temptation but would like it to keep in touch.

Early in my program I was given the opportunity to attend the international in Denver. That was when I could see that I would have friends all around the world.

As bloggers we get to share more often with each other and then find opportunities to meet in person. We have so many friends that we have not met yet. That makes life great.

I can't believe I missed your call last night or the meeting of the minds at the coffee place!!!! I was in a stoopid (ok, it really wasn't) meeting! how wonderful that you all got together and thank you for thinking of me and calling! Sounds like a terrific evening!!!

This has really touched me, dAAve, to see all of you together.
And this also touched me...
"that Hayden treats me better than I treat myself
that my friends treat me better than I treat myself - wassup with that?"
You are an honest guy and I appreciate that. I can also relate to it. Thanks for the post.
Peace,
Scout

How amazing and wonderful that God chose to use you, Mike, Scott and Matt to bring laughter, comfort and Joy to Pam and L. Your willingness to show up and be a part of this "bigger picture" in life is awesome.

Life is sooo beautiful. You're right dAAve in saying, that if I am working my recovery program the way I want to, my recognition of powerlessness will always be a reminder of my past and a reasonable guess at my future.
