work, work, work

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that I've slowly learned (in recovery) not to exxagerate the facts.  I have always been proficient at this.  Now, when I catch myself doing this, I have to stop and correct my thinking and speaking.

that a young man asked me to be his sponsor yesterday.  Without hesitating, I agreed.  But for some reason, I felt it necessary to tell him that although I have 4 sponsees right now, I'm not working steps with any of them.  In retrospect, there was absolutely no reason for me to say this.  I must examine why I said it.  Well, I know why.  I wanted him to know how damn busy I am, when in reality, I'm not.

for awareness of some of the defects in my thinking that need adjusting

Meditation is not a way of making your mind quiet. It is a way of entering into the quiet that is already there - buried under the 50,000 thoughts the average person thinks every day.
~~ Deepak Chopra

Maybe there was a reason for him that you said that - and it had nothing to do with you. I think God really uses us and sometimes we do and say things that are useful when we know the "rest of the story."

And then, maybe not!

Keith does not have gravity on his side or time.

More will be revealed with the sponsee.

I wonder why you're not doing steps, maybe I read you wrong.
