Taking care of me



todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

for acceptance of things just the way they are; to feel any other way is to cause myself problems

that I got to share my experience, strength and hope Saturday night for 55 minutes. Some of you call this qualifying; down here we call it a speaker meeting. I was so focused that the first time I looked at the clock I saw that I was already 3 minutes past time to stop. LOL The last time I did this I ended up 20 minutes short. Why the difference? I know this: I am in such a good place emotionally and spiritually that I can just go on and on. I want to give away what I've learned about myself and about recovery.
Where did this come from?

for so many people who support me. I have a difficult time accepting this.
Is this a low self-esteem issue?

I don't know about the self-esteem thing, but it has been hard for me to accept love and help from others. I have been so used to strings attached that when there are no strings I think they might be invisible!
