Lightbulb

I had my awakening this past weekend.

I've read this post many many times, and while I thought it was a very nice and powerful read, it just didn't apply to me.

Well, something happened this weekend that opened my eyes. I won't go into the gory details, but that voice finally cried enough. And I can't tell you what a powerful feeling it was and how my thinking and feelings have changed since.

I'm done seeking approval from my family and friends. I'm no longer interested in putting other people's needs before my own. I'm ready to start loving and accepting ME. And I'm going to stop letting fear rule me.

I can't even describe the feeling. It's similar to the way I felt when I hit my codie bottom. For me, things are always like that. Nothing ever happens gradually. I tend to go along in life, doing things one way, constantly banging my head against a wall, until one day I finally get it. Enough.

BD, thanks for making this a sticky post. It's taken me a long, long time, but the light bulb finally went on.

Thanks for listening.

Hi All...
I'm new here, but an old campaigner in recovery. What a nice site! (even if I can't access chat) I'm glad I found it.

Here's a contribution from one of our local oldtimers....short, sweet and to the point...

"If you have one foot in yesterday and one foot in tomorrow, there's a good chance that you'll p*** all over today."

Love,

Karen

Deb,

I have read and re-read this post. I needed this after some very rough spots at work the past few days. A constant reminder that I am not the center of the universe....Peace

Hi Debbie,

I'm new here and just discovered this post yesterday and was truly blown away by it. I printed it out and sent a copy to everyone I know. It currently has a home in front of my computer so it can be the first thing that I read every morning for inspiration to start my day.

Thank you so much for sharing something so special.

Hey everyone,

I have a lot going on in my life (my husband passed away the end of Sept) and I haven't been here as much as I should be.

I am so glad that you all like this writing. The moment I read it I knew it had to be at the top.

Hope everyone is doing great!!

Hugs to you all,
Debbie
