What I learned today

Posted 11-01-2012 at 10:18 PM by Mcribb

What I learned today is that you have to take advantage of your opportunities. You have to let go and let God get you through some situations. Even better than taking advantage of opportunities is to make the opportunities yourself. I keep on practicing patience. It is one area where when I am talking to people I have to really think about "Slowing down" and to "listen" There are so many commands I give myself or prayers. Some of them are "God take away my frustration" God free me from the bondage of myself" "God please guide my thinking" "God please repair my body and mind so I maybe of service tomorrow' I also make sure to write out "Slow down" or write out the things I really want out of life. I am lucky to have the knowledge that if you repeat some prayers over and over you get stronger with those. You have to have faith that it will work though. Everytime I say "Everyday in every way I am getting better and better" I really focus in on doing tasks better. I try to drive more careful, I try to make sure to complete the brushing of my teeth, I try to really bring to mind to do my task better and better. If I am to stay sober I need to get better and better each day. I need to grow and take on more responsbility. I know somedays I want to get up and walk out of AA meetings, but I have to push myself to stay there and go through some pain to get the reward. After a long day at work I sometimes don't want to hear what people are talking about, but I go as far as I can go in my day and when I want to quit I go further...just a bit further. If I always quit when I am tired or angry I would have quit everything in life. Now I know that you have to keep going a bit farther each day.

Everyday in everyway I am getting better and better. I want to love more. I want to have more fun each day. I want to show more patience. I want to grow with my money, my wealth, my knowledge, the amount of time and money I give to the needy. Everyday in everway I am getting better and better.
