The first step in changing anything is to know and accept that you have chosen it to be what it is. If you can't accept this on a personal level, agree to it through your understanding that we are all one. Seek then to create change not because a thing is wrong, but because it no longer makes an accurate statement of who you are. Jan 17. Meditation from "Conversations with God: page 36.
Gooooood Mooooooorning Allllllkies.
Well, I forgot my salutation the last two posts. You know how you do something and you just know something is not right, but you can't figure it out. I do that more and more as I age. Another thing I've noticed in my last few post is my spelling and grammatical errors. A couple of them have even been those that I cringe about in others. Such as and instead of an, or the wrong to, too, or two. Know what I mean. But that's ok, I'd rather be sober and incorrect than drunk and correct. It's just one of those things that bug me.
Yesterday I also gave you two days of the last week of my drinking. So there won't be one tonight. Plus, I'll also try to watch the length of my paragraphs. LOL. Hey, I'm sober. DO NOT DRIVE ME TO DRINK. LOL. I saw a video of a guy that went fishing and caught a stretch Hummer. It was a real, honest to God news video.
Today was a good day. If I'm sober, it's always a good day. And I have had almost 16 years of day to day sobriety. Some days are very challenging, but I get through those, sometimes willingly, sometimes reluctantly. But if I keep trudging, I always make it through - SOBER. I can't think of anything that could make me drink. I had "You Don't Drink No Matter What" drummed into my head so thoroughly that I hear it echoing daily. I went to the movies again today and saw "The Orphanage." Very good movie. A Spanish film with English subtitles.
Today I Am Grateful For:
My Higher Power
Dolly, my schnauzer.
Friends that love to tease me.
Y'all be pretty now, ya heah.
Every Heart has its secret sorrows, which the world knows not.
Oftentimes we call a man cold, when he is only sad.
