I still find myself getting agitated quickly. I believe some is to do with the physiological quitting of drinking still, however mostly because I am learning to change my thought pattern. I must pause, reflect and then answer or react to the best of my ability. Everyday I do that, I can win most of my battles and wars.
I went to a 10th step workshop meeting when I was out of town and really learned a lot from a surprising source, or so I thought at the time. It just goes to show, no matter the place or person, alcohol is the great equalizer.
Today I am grateful for:
- The safe return home from our trip.
- Being able to be with my Mom and wife on Mothers Day, sober.
- Calming down
- SLOWING down.
- The meeting week ahead and the joy it brings.
