So long as I continue to do it

tcr! · Dec 30, 2017 at 10:06 am

Audio (MP3): 20171230 - So long as I continue to do it

Amaryllis starting to open

I’m overly fond of how they worded all of AA’s Twelve Steps.Case in point: the 11th Step.

Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.
Step 11 of Alcoholics Anonymous

It doesn’t say that we pray in the morning and meditate in the afternoon or whatever. It says that we continued to seek, it doesn’t say when or where or how. The reason they didn’t put it on a schedule is because some people might work the third shift.

That’s it! I pray to be made aware of my higher power’s will, not mine. Before it was praying for my will, a new job, to better my situation etc. Now I pray for guidance of his will for me and the power to carry that will out. Because it’s important for us to remember, we aren’t in charge, we tried that and it failed miserably!

Yep, when I’m in charge I make a mess of my life.

What is step 1

tcr! tcr! · Jan 1, 2018 at 11:17 am

I’m not sure if you’re being serious or not 🤔

lifesStruggles · Jan 1, 2018 at 11:23 am

I’m 49 years old and don’t feel much like playing lol , so yes I was serious. I had a nice person send me a link to the book. I am reading the doctors message now. On day 3 ….pretty proud. Trying to find ways to entertain my brain. I usually can’t sleep when I don’t drink, so took something to help last night. Just hoping not to get as emotional as I was yesterday. So far I’m not.

You definitely don’t have to say anything. Remember, it’s an anonymous program and “what you hear here, who you see here, let it stay here” (read in every meeting I’ve been to). Do you have a computer? Go to InTheRooms.org and do a video meeting. All you have to have is google chrome (easily downloadable). What about a Big Book? You can read that in the privacy of your own home! Day 6 coming up!

Maggie: I can’t take that guy with the ponytail seriously. And if any guy has a man-bun, he shouldn’t be talking.

I just noticed we forgot to send Momma J’s bouncy Silver Santa home with her.

I wouldn’t play with him too much. 😉

Cats debating the cold

tcr! · Dec 27, 2017 at 8:22 pm

Mirah debating if she wants to go all the way outside Pearl debating if she wants to go all the way outside

Mirah’s debating if she wants to go all the way outside or not and then a few minutes later Pearl has the same debate. With it being -2°F and falling neither will commit.

Please note: This is their basement window and I haven’t shut the window completely on their tails. I just shut it far enough to remind them they can’t be half in and half out. They like to be half in and half out, though. Because cats.

In the summer I leave their window open all the time but since my basement desk is right by the window it’s too cold for all that horseshit now.
