Two Month

Postby Feeya » Tue Aug 16, 2016 7:40 am

Two Month today.
I am feeling a little off today.

But I feel incredibly grateful for two month of sobriety and for the recovery I live everyday.

I am not saying it's easier. But better!

A little off is a lot better than totally out of it.

Keep coming back it works.

In the working of the 11 steps the book talks about "not being inspired all the time" and we ask God for direction. I would say do something different. Take a walk, pick up the phone, read something different.....

I am currently baking a vegan cake for my homegroup meeting that is later tonight, so I keep myself busy.
I prayed a lot today and realised that I am not feeling off in a bad way, but just kind of different.
I am really astonished that I made it this far, that I am still alive... and I haven't really felt grateful to be alive in quite a long time so... It is probably just that!
Anyways, thank you guys for being here and guiding me along and always making me learn.
One day at a time.

Congrats on 2 months Feeya. watching your progress has been enlightening for me I must say. Even just in Type.

2 Months, the Fog has lifted, thing look bright, then little Life turmoil's try to slap us down. I would go someplace quit and say the 3rd Step Prayer Many Many times. Having just made contact with my HP, things always seemed insurmountable. That has passed thankfully.

I really Reflected on a Daily Reflections quote from back in May.
Fear knocked at the door. Faith answered, there was No one there"
This took awhile for me to believe and work daily in my life. Just keep Trudging this Road of Happy Destiny, The views just keep getting more beautiful!

Congratulations on 2 months of sobriety!

....I am really astonished that I made it this far, that I am still alive... and I haven't really felt grateful to be alive in quite a long time so...


I remember feeling that too! Took me a while to get used to idea of being a "winner". It felt kind of weird and out of character at first. Looking back I think it's because it was..... :lol:

You're doing great, Feeya! Thank you for sharing your journey with us.
