Thanks Lucky for the starter. Gratefully at the moment I am up-to-date with important volunteer project. Will it continue....??? I even rec'd an email from someone saying I shoudln't be the "go to" person because it needs to be timely & consistent (the person I used to be). Whatever, at least it's good for now. Feeling human (after being pretty sick) for the whole day today, so hopefully tonight will be:
-continue to answer emails
-meet YH for 8:30PM
Just also want to turn over that I'm suppposed to study with someone who is very unavailable, and I'm pretty lucky at the opportunity. Last week, I was too sick, and tonight due to not getting things done, don't think I can make it. Don't want to continue to blow this person off, or she might think...... Don't know if I can realistically do it though. Hope if I can't she won't give up on me.
May your day bring you happiness!!
♥Prayers & guidance needed & appreciated for my Yoffee's emotional & physical healing.♥
I'm not sure why but I feel compelled to at least kind of say what's been going on, if anything because I have to keep it a secret to all but a few. I'm very pregnant by my first and only boyfriend who did some things he shouldn't have to me even though I miss him very much. No parent support, being pressured to give him up. Very stressed. Luckily I finally got the courage to see someone to talk about everything. But coming on here helps me get some things done, even if I'm woefully behind. Thanks for letting me share, not trying to get any attention, just thought it'd be easier to share with friends if necessary if I share somewhere somewhat anonymous. Thanks. List to follow.
And anyone else who sent warm thoughts.
I really appreciate all the lovely supports. I love my son very much and I think I can make it work- luckily I've gotten the strength to seek out support, though there is alot to be done in little time. One step at a time.
Prayers are appreciated, ruthb :)
Just thanks very very much.
My prayers are with you. There are so many people who have been in your situation and I pray you get the help you need and is right for you. There is no shame or secret necessary here or anywhere. I pray you keep looking for your answers. There is so much help out there. Vic
I too feel safe to share here. Sending you prayers for you and your baby!! So many, surrounding your every action and thought. Please keep coming back and sharing with us!!
katia, thanks for sharing. May I pray for you and your little one?
Best of luck sweetie, you are going through a rough time! I know you will make the right decision.

I am flexible and open to change in every aspect of my life.
3. Check calendar - Done
4. Plan to Plan - Done
5. Exercise - going for a run right after check in
6. In Box - Done Timsheet - Done. Billing goal met 6.30.
Didn't meet admin goal of 1 hour. Add that onto a weekend time.
7. Reading excerpt (I retype and say aloud)
"Meditation and Prayer." The 11th step asks us to meditate as a route to improving our conscious contact with the Universe/HP/God. Meditation is different than worrying or obsessing. Obsession and worrying are fear connections. Meditation means opening our mind and our spiritual energy to the Universe/HP/God connection.
In the busyness of our day and life, it may seem like a waste of time to slow down, to stop what we're doing, and take this kind of break. It is no more a waste of time than stopping to put gas in our car when the tank is almost empty. It is necessary, it is beneficial, and it saves time. In fact, meditation can create more time and energy than the moments we take to do it.
Meditation and prayer are powerful recovery behaviors that work. We need to be patient.
Saw a quote today that says: Have patience with the Universe/HP/God; he/she/it has had patience with you all these years.
But solutions are coming. They are already on the way, if we have done our part -- meditate/pray -- and then let the rest go. When our conscious contact with the Universe/HP/God improves, our subconscious contact will too. We will find ourselves increasingly tuned into the Universe/HP/God's harmony and will for us. We will find and maintain that soul connection, the Universe/HP/God connection.
Mediation/Prayer: Today, I will take a moment for meditation and prayer. [Doesn't matter if it's in morning, evening, coffee break, during a walk - that's our choice.] I will decide when and how long to do it. I am a child and creation of the Universe/HP/God -- a Higher Power who loves to listen and talk to me.
Dear Universe/HP/God - help me let go of my fears about whether or not You hear an care. Help me know that You are there and that I am able to tap into that spiritual consciousness.
Melodie Beattie adaption.
Have a great day everyone. And thank for everyone's post. I am enjoying the sense of community, the recovery friendships and see how giving and receiving support helps all of us grow.

Hectic morning! I got up on time, and got to the gym earlier than usual although not quite as early as I want. Traffic was horrendous but still got here on time. My coworker called and asked me to lead her 9:30 meeting which just ended, and I have time to grab a cuppa before my next meeting. I'll be back with a to do list, uh, soon!

Sank to the bottom yesterday and harmed special relationships in my life.
Picking myself back up today. Took the day off of work to try to manage some of the chaos in my personal affairs that are occupying a large part of my psyche and hindering work at the professional level.
Asking forgiveness from my HP and will be asking forgivness from my family this evening. Asking myself for forgiveness and the ability to move on...
thank you all for being here.
Keep coming back and moving forward.
Show up (done) great starter. Ask God to direct our thinking, especially asking that it be divorced from self-pity,, dishonest or self-seeking motives.Thanks for being here.
Through believing that a Higher Power can help, a man or a woman formerly eaten up with raging fear, anger, shame, doubt, guilt, and frustration may become calm and begin to grow spiritually by focusing on doing some simple steps, going to meetings, reading the Big Book, and talking to a sponsor. This person is not alone; there are other caring brothers and sisters who really do understand because they are dealing with the same problems the newcomer has. The simple act of believing that a Higher Power can restore us to sanity leads us into a family and into a new life where we can begin to see and experience a little sanity.
- A Hunger for Healing, p. 35
I want to thank my Higher Power for this program, this website, the telephone and online meetings, and my life.

Not doing very well today. I am tired and muddled from getting used to being in my own place again.
Food shopping - enough to manage
Emailed friend re meeting
Had another look at craft stuff and it is better I sort it properly before putting it away
Alarming letter from landlords saying that they propose to alter my tenancy agreement in a way that is probably illegal. I am not putting off acting on it as I need to think before action - as well as procrastination I sometimes react rather than think when I am angry or threatened
Washing which I had forgotten about
Try not to make any more mess
Regards a very muddled and tired Rexroth
Hung up washing to find that I had laundered my passport which was in a pocket in one of my shirts - this also leaves bits of wet paper all over the floor
Neighbour delivers mail which the mail service was supposed to keep secure - I can't find the contract
Neighbour also has attended meeting with landlords who do not know how they are to implement changes to the tenancy agreement but they are doing it by the end of November anyway
Out and bought some more food and eaten too much
I think it is time to stop pray and remember that all these things are resolvable when I am not so tired and muddled.
Phoned Mail service who apologise and say they will deliver any mail they have tomorrow which is when all of it should have been delivered and they will also enquire into what happened
Phoned Passport service and I need to get my form and photo countersigned and that is the only extra thing I need to do as I was going to get a new passport anyway
Read some of stuff from landlords and know what to do about it which is to wait until I have all the information
Put craft stuff away
A long phone chat on craft stuff with fellow craftsman who phoned me and I've agreed to write an article for the journal
Uploaded photos from travel onto laptop
Prayer and reflection
Bed and sleep
