It's about time ...




todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

for continuous, uninterupted sobriety

for a minor breakthrough in my thinking disorder(s); it's simply that for the past several months I have been overly defensive towards what I perceive as criticism and/or second guessing --- it has taken me about 8 months to get a handle on this, now it's time to take action, beginning with some step work with my sponsor

for outside help

that our electricity came back on at 10am yesterday after 10 days in the dark

I can relate to that defensiveness thing too Dave.I've had to admit that I've also reacted that way for some time now..but I am not sure why yet..admitting it is the first step though..right?

I like that quote there!

And good for you for working through that issue. 8 months is nothing in one's lifetime. There is no time limit on fixing things. It's out of our hands!
