Keep it Simple.
The rain came down in sheets yesterday we needed it, makes for happy cows and horses! Everything will be green in a day. It’s amazing how nature is so powerful. How the land restores itself for abundance. It’s a good reminder to replenish ourselves.
There is a lot going on in the world today and in each one of our lives. I don’t know about you but I can get over spent. Taxed. Most of it for me, is mental exhaustion. The other day the reminder of reapplying the third step has been so helpful. I can tell you I have woken up physically feeling ill for months, that’s what stalkers do they try to wear you down. I can also tell you that had it not been for the 12 steps, I know I could not have gotten through the worst of it clean and actually sane for the most part lol.
Today’s reading was about life’s challenges not being tests and my sponsor has reiterated that a zillion times. It’s just life and life presents opportunities no matter which way you look at things, every thing is an opportunity as long as we stay clean.
I still may not have the answers we would like yet but doing another firm third step daily has replenished my connection to my higher power.
I have one and guess what I’m not it. My family members have their own too and I’m not it. Every one has one and I’m not it. Mine is a loving powerful higher power just because I don’t know why, doesn’t mean it is bad, patience has never been my best attribute but I work on it. Also faith to keep trusting it’s all going to be ok.
So far I’m tired but I’m still inspired. Someday we will look back and be grateful for the things we have lived through because we lived through them. Clean. Keep coming back. Reach out and ask for help. The right hand will grab your hand walk to to the steps to freedom. I’m still here still believe and still working in my recovery one day at a time. It’s a good life no matter what – live it. Have a beautiful day! Www.Sybilpaige.com
