Things I have learned today. Self appraisal with a sponsor can be paiful yet learning experience. Thank god my over the phone sponsor tells it like it is. Patience, you will learn it. Weather you want to or not. How you handle yourself while your learning it is character. No one is requiring me to figure things out. It is not a part of the solution. I don't know what God has planned. So as I am learning patience and tolerance I hope I find some grace. And forgiveness for myself as well as others. And understanding for myself and toehrs.

Beliefs have the power to create and the power to destroy.
Human beings have the awesome ability
to take any experience of their lives
and create a meaning that disempowers them
or one that can literally save their lives.

Sometimes I lay awake at night and wonder where I've gone wrong. Then a little voice inside my head says,
"This is going to take more than one night."

Forget your perfect offering.
There is a crack in everything.
That's how the light gets in."

I like that, building character. My husband tells me that when we're walking through adversity, that we're working on building our character.

I didn't care about things like integrity, honesty, kindness, character when I was out there in active addiction, all I cared about was feeding my obsession. I was so self-centered that it's going to take years to change the old habits but today, one day at a time, if I practice the new habits, the new character building ways, use the tools the program has so freely given me and follow the steps to happiness, I do have faith I'll get there some day.

And Grace? Grace isn't something you get, it's something you accept.

smooches~
