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.
TODAY I CHOOSE:
to not drink
to love myself
to take care of myself
to stand tall
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
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
