- that the gallery 'walk-about' went well despite the rain, we sold some paintings and some posters
- that I have friends that come out to support me, send me healing thoughts and make my life a pleasure
- that my throat held out with the help of some sugar free lozenges. This morning it is still very sore, my stuffy head is finally a little more open and there is definitely more sleep on today's gray, rainy agenda.
- that although I felt totally inadequate last night when a friend called in some relationship emotional distress, I could be there and generally always answer the phone
- that there is a solution
Today I have confidence in my life and I am experiencing consistency in my behavior and attitude. In recovery, things follow a natural progression and life is more like a series of curves than sharp peaks. As an addict, my life was forever going up and down, ecstasy followed by gloom; the "best ever" followed by depression; always black and white --- no grays.
Today I have some balance and consistency. Things are connected and grow in the process of change. Sudden happenings and quick changes scare me because they are symptomatic of yesterday's disease and are not consistent with the spiritual life I seek. Today I have the peace of knowing that tomorrow will be something like today --- and I am happy. ~Fr Leo
