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

Learning when and how to say no is a very important part of our recovery. Most often, the person we need to say no to is our self. ~Food for Thought

Today I am grateful...
  • for a good nights rest
  • that I got some stuff cleared up yesterday that was keeping me in fear and anxiety
  • that I did not get sick after eating some freshly bought ham that I noticed after I had eaten several pieces was severely discolored on one side and although it didn't taste nasty, it was scary looking. Since I am not able to throw up at will, I had to pray when I went to bed to not get sick. I am hoping I am in the clear now.
  • that I was able to make a lab and a follow-up appointment this morning. There have been no available appointments for weeks.
  • that we have a dynamic speaker for today's Hump Day meeting

Stretch your arms. Push the lid off the box. Get out into the world. Walk around. Move about. See the hills, the lakes, the forests, the mountain peaks, the valleys, the rivers. See how big your world can be. See how connected everything is. See how connected you are, too-- to all that is. Make yourself comfortable, wherever you are. Make yourself a home and be at home in the world. God, help me relax and make myself at home in your beautiful world. ~The Language of Letting Go

Fear and anxiety are things that get me down. I like getting that stuff cleared up as well.

So much of life seems to be a willingness to get on with life...

Did the ham have that shiny, silvery, slippery stuff on it?
Usually food poisoning strikes within 8 hours but e coli can take up to 2 days.

Did you have green eggs with your ham?

Bill said...

You could have had green eggs & ham.

I like that quotation from LOLGo.

Ok you "can't" throw up?
or you won't throw up?
or do you just not have that gag reflex thingydo?
Do you also have the jewelry to prove it? (hee hee)

Glad you got whatever was working on fear and anxiety out of your life. It's so good when that happens. Wonderful quotes as usual.
