Monday 12/21/09 - "OVERFLOWING"
My cup, my plate, and my schedule are all overflowing today.
Too many things to do and not enough time to do them all in. What have I learned in Alcoholics Anonymous and Al-Anon? I know today that I am not and don't need to be "Superwoman". I don't have to please everyone or be perfect.
I'm jotting out this short blog quickly as to not be too late to the hospital for my volunteering. The patients will be there just the same if I am half an hour late.
I haven't been to the gym in almost a week so that's on the schedule somewhere. I'm meeting a sponsee downtown near the hospital and gym and plan to meet her before I head home.
I am happy today. Why? I'm not always sure. I think today it is because I am not fighting anyone or anything. I am succeeding at going with the flow a little better right now.
I am determined to not let my mind stand in the way of enjoying this beautiful season.
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.
