Sunday 1/4/09 - "NEW YEAR'S EVOLUTIONS""
"NEW YEAR'S EVOLUTIONS"
FOR 2009 -OUT WITH RESOLUTIONS! -IN WITH EVOLUTIONS!
Evolution (definition):A gradual process in which something changes into a different and usually more complex or better form.
Most years I decide on New Year's Resolutions and by the end of the week or even the day in which I made them, they are gone from my head for the duration of the year. Sometimes I try to remember last year's when the new year rolls around, but seldom can remember.
This year I have decided to think in more gradual terms because that is how changes happen for me.
So......(for me)........ WHAT NEEDS EVOLVING?
Appreciation of each moment.
Artistic expressions: Writing poems, writing in general Drawing and painting
Physical well-being: Less eating Healthy eating Exercise
Spirituality: Prayer life Conversations with God God-consciousness
Getting out of myself: Finding an AA home group Working with others
Ministries: Ministry of "presence" Ministry of "healing touch" Ministry of "prayer"
I'm sober in AA since July 5th 1985, and a grateful member of Alanon since November 2004.
I joined the "blogosphere" in September, 2008.
In December 2011 I became a grandmother for the first time and now understand why it's such a big deal. I'm wildly in love again with that little guy.
