feelin' it

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that we had 20 persons at our Eyes Wide Shut meeting yesterday (6:30am). Traditionally, it averages about 10-12 souls. We have been having 15-16 lately, but 20 looked huge!

that some of the most wonderful AA meetings I've attended have had less than 10 attendees

for the absolutely incredible effect that the practice of Step 3 has on my day-to-day life. Being able to just let go and allow life to happen, without fighting it or anybody, is the best way to serenity that I've found. Thanks, y'all.

that I understand almost enough new technology to get by

Forgiveness is not always easy. At times, it feels more painful than the wound we suffered, to forgive the one that inflicted it. And yet, there is no peace without forgiveness.
- Marianne Williamson

I really love small meetings too.

I like all the meetings. Each meeting is like a library--there may be 10 books or 30 books. I get something from them all.

In a meeting of 4-10 Peeps, there is little if any room for EGO--it's been my experience.

Love the Marianne Williams quote! A great reminder that foriveness is really a gift to ourselves, and a door which invites our HP to enter our hearts. Thanks, O Wise One! xoxo

I love Syd's library analogy. it gives me a different way to look at other opinions.

Don't you love those early morning meetings? Most folks that get up that early for a meeting are either serious about sobriety or desperate...or both. And a meeting at the crack of dawn will not get too big, except for a day here & there.

When I was looking for help with dual disorder I didn’t know where to turn. I finally went with this center and they helped me save my life.
