Calmer than you are Dude...

"Calmness is constructive of good. Agitation is destructive of good. I should not rush into action. I should first "be still and know that He is God"." Twenty Four Hours a Day for May 10

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.

  1. Calming down and slowing down are two of the biggest gifts sobriety has given me.

    Enjoy the week's start.
