Wow, what a great day! I have a fantastic life! And, life is as good as I allow it to be.
Today started off with my 9:00 AM men’s meeting, 60 or 70 sober drunks (working on their lives, awesome.
Then, in the afternoon, got to spend time with family and a very good friend from Houston and talked to her a bit about recovery (she is a thyroid cancer survivor).
And, ended the day with a ‘family after meeting’. About 18 couples in recovery getting together to share experience, strength and hope.
Now, someone that is not familiar with any of these might say ‘how boring’. But, not me.
These are some ‘of the good things in life’ that come my way on a daily basis.
There were also (myself included) 4 cancer survivors at this last meeting. We have two things in common, putting the diseases of alcoholism and cancer into ‘remission’.
I am told that with regard to my alcoholism, I have a ‘daily reprieve contingent upon my spiritual condition’. I take this to include my mental condition/attitude. I am also learning that my mental attitude is very important with regard to my cancer recovery. Life is as good as I allow it to be.
What I mean by the title of this post is that love is the answer to my problems. If I can begin to love myself without reservation, my attitude and (per a couple of authors I am reading) health improve. I am also then able to start showing others love.
What I give out returns in multitudes. So, if I give out some love, a lots comes back.
