On vacation this week and getting some time to just be. This is as important as the times I spend actively pursuing recovery in journaling, meeting with folks, reading and listening to teachings on different subjects. Sometimes, just letting the presence of God descend into places that we don’t fully open up without the relaxing … Continue reading A little time…
Been kind of wondering where my head is at of late. Ever been there? Where, you are not in a bad space, but not super-wow…just… eh. So, just been in prayer and meditation over the feeling that I’ve been having, and I believe I have been in a slosh-slosh-slosh period. That’s when you are plodding … Continue reading Boots in a bog
There has been a lot of conversation in my house lately about the goings on of late. Things that have to do with violence against others, and behavior that no one expects or can fathom. Where is God? (He is here, and it breaks His heart to see his creation hurt each other) Does He … Continue reading What next?
It’s amazing how digging into recovery continues to yield rewards and growth. I am still struggling with my eating, however, so, 2 steps forward…kind of like a cha cha. The recovery cha cha. In a meeting recently during our quiet time, I sought guidance from God for my recovery journey. And what I was given … Continue reading Strings and scissors
So, this season has been about trying to find my feet in my recovery. It is been one of starts, stalls and just plain exhaustion from being sick for several weeks with a stubborn respiratory infection. But every week that I am physically able, I make it out to 1 to 2 meetings a week. … Continue reading Grace for Today
So, because a part of recovery is releasing expectations, I will no longer apologize for my somewhat sporadic posting. My posts appear when they will and that is really between God and I. My brain is just flat tired. I have been working overtime for over a week, and it’s just fried my circuits a … Continue reading No Expectations
Ah, nothing I love more than water and sunshine. Hanging out with family in the water in the sun and I am in a happy space. Last night, cleaning up for bed, I found out that there can be too much of a good thing as I felt the effects of too much sun and … Continue reading Water and Sunshine
So, it’s been several days since I’ve written anything, beyond work stuff. I have felt pretty inundated there, and finally tonight I am coming up for air. I have also decided to start being a bit more intentional about my food. This has caused me to be a little more edgy. Fun times. Found myself … Continue reading With Love, a new Journey.
Meeting night tonight. This entry will be the blog-equivalent of an ugly cry. Spent some time before the meeting chatting with a long-time friend in recovery, explaining some things about my early life and how I didn’t come away with any mementos, y’know, stuff from childhood, because my mom was always moving us from place … Continue reading Raw and Out There…
Listening to a pod cast this week, and a phrase stuck out to me. Integrity is not perfection, it is authenticity. The speaker went on to say that many times we use the excuse that nobody’s perfect as a cop-out. It becomes a way to shrug-off a conviction to progress toward God’s plan of clean … Continue reading The Road of Authenticity
