Steps 4 and 5

Cereal junkie...........

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that by writing out Step 4 (of AA's twelve steps) I could visualize on paper some patterns to my faulty thinking; I learned a few things aobut myself I would never have imagined

that Step 5 gave me the opportunity to trust another human with my deepest and darkest secrets; by doing this, the negative power of some of that knowledge was removed

that my 8 years relationship with my other half is, at times, the most difficult thing I've ever tried.
I keep trying.

that my bronchitis is a little better, but the cough remains deep within me at times

In all things and in all ways, choice impacts virtually every element of our life. It bears repeating that even those things which seem out of reach of our choice are governed by how we choose to perceive them.

I did Step Four with the Al-Anon Blueprint workbook and then did it using the Big Book's format. The former was the most time consuming but the latter was the more difficult and really laid everything out for me. I too could see the patterns of my behavior.
