I just got back from the 12 step meeting and we talked about Step 8. I’m grateful for the meeting and to get to meet with other guys in recovery from the same addictions as me.
Today was a good day. I woke up early for a business meeting and it went well. When I got home, the first thing I wanted to do was work on the step and get that all worked out.
I feel I need to make a bit more time for the study I do after I do the step work. I want to study about a topic like grace or humility or charity coming up.
I’m grateful for my recovery today. One thing did come to mind while I was at the meeting tonight. Today I was working on a job description for a few partners and wrote out some specific details. I then went to a spreadsheet that had about 300 leads, some of which had websites. Without even thinking, I clicked on a few of the websites to see how they looked.
They are all dance studio websites and I didn’t really think too much of it. However, when I was in the meeting, I just thought about how that can be potentially dangerous for a few reasons:
– and just being on sites that aren’t really helpful
I thought these things through during the meeting. I didn’t see anything on the sites but don’t want to be near those places. It’s tempting because the sites were terrible and they all need work, but I don’t feel it’d be good for me to go there as far as trust and my relationship with Becky.
I’m grateful for recovery today.
I’m grateful that I’m aware of where I am today and my feelings and emotions.
I’m grateful that the thoughts came to me while at the meeting as I was assessing my day.
I’m grateful that when Becky got home, the first thing I wanted to talk to her about was what had happened. We had a great talk about things and feel really close together in recovery right now.
She went to the recovery meeting for spouses and had a great experience as well.
I’m grateful that I’m excited about recovery and wanting to live today submitting my will to God.
I look forward to another day in recovery.
