Monday 8/30/10 - "I CHOOSE"
I have learned some things in the 25 years I have worked the Alcoholics Anonymous program and the almost 6 years I have worked the Al-Anon program. One of the most important is that I have choices. When I was in the grip of my alcoholism I had very few choices and absolutely none respecting alcohol, then I got sober. I have learned that I have a smorgasbord of choices.
SO....... TODAY I CHOOSE:
to not drink joy happiness to love myself to take care of myself to stand tall hope faith trust peace serenity to lovingly set and maintain boundaries to accept myself as I am to continue to work on becoming the person God intended me to be to work on my spiritual connection to God emotional balance love sanity courage beauty
I choose to stay out from behind the self-imposed curtain I used to insulate myself behind for so many years
I choose to live life fully center-stage

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.
