Another hard discussion with Becky last night has me feeling the affects this morning. I went to play ball early today and that was good to get out and run a bit, but overall I didn’t feel great there either. Our talk last night was really hard for a few reasons: I felt the pain […]
Quick Post – Surrendering Feelings
I’m feeling a bit frustrated right now: I just got off a call with a client for HS who apparently thought we were with another company and she has double booked us for Monday. She’d given us a downpayment on Wednesday too and now is hoping to cancel. I know the right thing to do […]
53 Must’s to Live in Real Recovery from Addiction
Last week I shared 50 Must’s to Live in Real Recovery from Addiction, part of an article shared by Steven in one of his comments about working the 12 Steps of Recovery. Today I wanted to share the other 53 musts, as found in the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous. These “musts” are specific instructions […]
A Day of Surrender from Negative Emotions
I’m just going to write right now. Not sure it will all make sense but I want to get it out and not stuff it, push it on, or blame. My parents are here again… No triggers last night when we got home from UCAP to speak of. A few small triggers today at Church […]
Let Go and Let God
What am I feeling today? I’m not sure. I’m just going to make a list of some of the things that come to mind. I didn’t sleep the best last night: my throat really hurt and I kept waking up I had a weird dream – like Becky and I were with her family at […]
Have I Really Been in Recovery from My Addictions?
I feel pretty sick to my stomach for a couple reasons this morning: Becky and I had a talk last night about how things went with Adam Moore. I could tell from when I saw her after the meeting that it was really emotional. Apparently, the whole online affair subject has been opened back up: […]
Mapping Out My Day One Task at a Time
I’ve had a busy morning with the Somerset property and quite a long night last night with Tyson. He is getting better but woke up almost every hour… I’m feeling better today. Beck met with Adam Moore and it seemed to go well. She said he’s really good at just listening and letting things set […]
Doing the Will of God – What Does That Mean?
From my writing from yesterday, I wanted to dig deeper regarding “Doing the will of God.” Questions that come to mind: How do I know what the will of God is for me right now? How do I not confuse my will with God’s? Does God have a will for me in everything I do? When do […]
The Focus on Feelings
What am I feeling today? We are in Arizona with Becky’s family. Sometimes when we’re with them like this, I don’t feel very connected emotionally to Becky. I had to let Daniel go as a sponsee in the 90 day program last night. I got a bunch of notifications from my server about hacking on […]
What Does It Mean to Be Humble & How Can I Be More Humble?
To me, being humble means being grateful, but I’m sure there’s more to it than that. Who in the scriptures was known as someone who was humble? Jesus Christ Moses Ammon Alma the Younger Job Nephi Captain Moroni Lehi These are some that come to mind. What did they do to show their humility? How […]
