Finding a way check in

Monday 11 am

Thank you lennon for the starter, and thank you tracy-la for those readings - they were almost handpicked for me today!

I had a bad night with insomnia, anxiety etc and ended up cancelling an appointment in another town as I did not feel I had enough sleep to drive there safely. Now have to find another day for this so feeling further behind. But . . . I can use today to do some things I would not otherwise have had time for. One of those involves a submission due today which is quite challenging for me. I worry about giving offence when giving feedback and consequently have trouble phrasing things.

Thank you all for being here.

#1  My Declaration of Self-Esteem:

I am me. In all the world there is no one else exactly like me. There are persons who have some parts like me, but no one adds up exactly like me. Therefore, everything that comes out of me is authentically mine because I alone chose it.
  —Virginia Satir

Feeling special, feeling worthy and unique in the contribution we make to our surroundings is perhaps not a very familiar feeling to many of us in this recovery program. We may have recognized our differences from others, but not in a positive way. We may well have figured that to be our problem. "If only I were more like her . . ." To celebrate our specialness, the unique contribution we make to every situation we experience, is one of the gifts of recovery.

It's spiritually moving to realize the truth of our authenticity. To realize that no other choice will ever be just like our choice - to realize that no other contribution will be just like our contribution. Our gift to life is ourselves. Life's gift to us is the opportunity to realize our value.

Today, I will be aware of my gifts, I will offer them and receive them thankfully.

#2  Pinpointing Anxiety

Many of us suffer from a vague, nameless anxiety for which we are unable to find a source. We do not know exactly what we fear, but we know that we are afraid. In the past, we tried to dispel this ominous anxiety by procrastinating.

As long as we procrastinated compulsively, we made it more difficult to get at the reasons for our anxiety. Trying to cover it up with procrastination did not get rid of it, and until we stopped procrastinating compulsively we were unable to identify the source of our anxiety.

By abstaining, we face anxiety rather than trying to cover it up. If we are willing to put up with a certain amount of emotional discomfort, we will be able to understand and work through many of the irrational notions that have made us anxious. Our Higher Power allows buried fears to surface as we acquire the strength and faith to confront them. When we are abstinent, we are able to define our anxiety more clearly and handle it with greater maturity.

By Your light, may we see our irrational anxiety for what it is.

Journey 9:30

Happy Sunday!   I want to have a relaxed but also moderately productive day.  Now I'm going to do 1 hour of easy yoga, meditate, and then make oatmeal bars to have for breakfast next week.    I'm trying to avoid relying on protein bars for breakfast and snacks, and have something natural (but yummy).  A great side effect of making these is that I also make a batch without raisins to use for all natural dog biscuits.   The dogs LOVE them :).

My TDL for the day :


  • MIT: bathe the giant stinky dogs
  • MIT: clean bathroom after bathing giant stinky dogs
  • yoga
  • make oatmeal bars
  • change sheets
  • 1 load of laundry
  • Fix hem of blue jacket
  • Review financial paperwork stuff
  • dinner and dishes
  • MIT: rest and relax this evening
