todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful
that it's not always easy being simple (glad I worded that correctly)
for my perseverance of recovery; something I didn't even know I could do
for a discussion meeting about sponsorship. I don't care for that term, but it's what is used. I prefer to think of "sponsees" as people I'm working with, people with whom I am sharing what I know about the 12 steps so that they may practice the steps and then pass along their knowledge and experience to others.
that I'm much, much better at not overwhelming myself with too much volunteer work. I can get really stressed out. Both of my brain cells don't like to be active at the same time.
Get a life in which you are not alone. Find people you love, and who love you. And remember that love is not leisure, it is work.
