    Insanity – doing the same thing over and over again, expecting different results.

    What are you doing differently today on your path of recovery?

    **********************************************************

    For me, I’m trying to stay focused on continually bringing myself back to the here and now, just for today, and taking responsibility for things I can do today instead of constantly projecting into the future about how things are going to be and not doing much of anything to change anything.

    Today I went to a meeting and shared honestly. Today I read about recovery and stopped often to consider what I was reading. Today I picked up trash along a highway for an hour and didn’t get consumed with anything else except being in the moment and picking up the trash (bonus, I found a $1 bill! and the good alcoholic that I am kept looking for a $20, lol) Today I sat quietly and meditated for 1/2 an hour, accepting and inviting whatever came up as a blessing/an opportunity to feel, whether good or bad. Today I listened to others’ stories and didn’t roll my eyes or think ‘these people are crazy’. Today, I’m learning to rejoice when I catch myself wanting alcohol, feel it for what it is -a temporary feeling, and simply choose not to react.
