Pet peeves and other junk

Your first relationship must be with yourself. Meditations from "Conversations with God - Book 1" June 11, page 126
Hey there my bunch of alkie friends. How the hell are you? Just have a few pet peeves:
  1. Judgemental people
  2. Self-appointed gurus
  3. Gurus
  4. two faced people
  5. took me tooooooo long to get sober.
  6. Keep up with your side of street; I'll do the same

Today I am grateful for:

  • God, my Higher Power
  • MY sobriety, long time coming, long time there, still learning.
  • Mamie, my OCD schnauzer
  • My Sponsor
  • Growth
  • My real peeps, posse, no matter what.
  • My Right Eye
  • Improvement in my Left Eye
  • being sighted
  • Being true to myself
  • All y'all

Y'all be pretty now, ya heah.

Pet Peeves: Zane, I've got 1, 2, 3, and 4. Can we still be friends?

It didn't really take you too long to get sober, you just got to party longer than many of us. I can say this because I think we got sober at about the same age.

I'm dropping in to give you a cyber-hug.

It's the self-appointed and self-anointed that bother me. I can deal with gurus who are authentic. But once control and egoism get in the way, I'm gone. Have a good Friday.

Of course, Grineroni.

Guru: literally gu: dark:, ru: light. Guru means to take from dark to light. It is generally saved for those who are genuine teachers and for enlightened beings. Regular humans who consider themselves gurus are the ones that need to be slapped.
