tout changement

I had been wondering what to do about all of the problems I had and over the last few days, really just seeing my old behaviour more clearly and seeing me slip in and out of it! I realised that all I had to do was face them do what I can and let the rest go.

After that I realised that these problems are actually quite good and in the last 3 days I have found work and am doing it, been offered two good business opportunities, getting up each morning at 7am and running with Rana, what a great way to start my day (after my spiritual ritual) and yesterday I asked a woman out on a date, she said yes which is great. I am so pleased with myself, no sneaking around or not asking, I simply asked.

So take heart, my experience is that the direst of problems these days are golden, although I would have felt like strangling anyone who told me that at the time.

On with work.

Kevin

Thanks for the post. I think it's great how you just asked that woman on a date. My biggest problem at the moment is fear. Fear of the unkown I guess and fear of being humiliated, rejected or hurt I guess. SO nice one for just asking. I hope to get there one day too.

Peace x

I like your wording and find myself pondering what you just said here....

"The direst of problems is golden." A new way of looking at things for me. Interesting. Do others who are sober look at things this way now? Would love to hear of some examples of this. I am only 8 weeks along, and am curious to hear more about this statement.

Thanks!
