IF THE ONLY PRAYER YOU SAID IN YOUR LIFE WAS "THANK YOU", THAT WOULD SUFFICE. ~Meister Eckhart

We neither ran nor fought. But accept we did. And then we were free. ~Bill W
.
Today I am grateful...
  • that the events of yesterday will push me into action about a situation that needs to be resolved
  • that I am uncomfortable emotionally at this moment, but nothing I cannot deal with. I meet with my sponsor this morning.
  • that the past week is coming to a close. Life stuff, this oppressive heat, the weirdness of what's being broadcast on TV. It has all been surreal and uncomfortable.
  • that a painting will go home today with its Mystery Date
  • that life can be real and surreal, ugly and beautiful, scary and healing...all at the same time

Learning acceptance in sobriety is part of the growing-up process. Along with learning to accept things we cannot change, however, we learn there are some things we don't have to accept. Living sober gives us the power and confidence to make such changes. ~Walk in Dry Places

Take the week end to re coup and re group. I know you will. Me too.

I hope all the discomfort will pass and serenity will replace it.
