The Courage to Make a Change

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that through a lot of prayer, I can sometimes see the right thing to do

that I continue to stay sober and smoke-free during the difficult times, thanks to my Higher Power

that my sponsor will be the guest-speaker-of-honor at the 12:15p Speaker Meeting today

that the noon meeting yesterday was about FEAR and walking through it; this came only a couple of hours after I had to let go of my 5+ year companionship with Hayden. I won't give details here because it's not anyone's business; suffice it to say that we are both in a lot of pain over this, but we shall both emerge from it intact, but most of all, we shall remain friends

that tomorrow is hAAlf nAAked thursdAAy - snap an odd pic of yourself and post it

All receive advice. Only the wise profit from it.

Dear dAAve,

I don't know what happened between you and Hayden but, I know I love you and that I support you.

You are a man of principle and a no-nonsense person regarding boundaries.

It must have been very serious. I'm so sorry.

Sending positive energy and love your way.

Everytime a relationship ended in my life, I was a little bit closer to knowing what was best for me. I hope the other person did too.

Thank you for allowing a peek into your life. Personally, it is yours to grow through and of course you are doing so. I know it is not fun, but you stay strong cuz you stick close to your God and those in your recovery circle.

BTW, I do appreciate your humor, how do you do it? It is a gift. (In regard to your comments on posts). Thank you for providing a smile. Now now, just don't let such get to your head ok ;)
