A Certain Blogger Discussed, and Not Faring Well...........................

I had occasion to use some long-forgotten quotes out of the AA Big Book today. I was attempting to explain the reason that I felt a renewal of "civil communications" would be unlikely at this time with a certain blogger (ahem!) and to whom I was speaking was a court-mandated person. 'Nuff said. I... Sign in to see full entry.

...the courage to change the things I can..................................

When I say the Serenity Prayer, I always shudder when Iget to that phrase, "...the courage to change the things I can..." I already have taken the leap of faith so I continue to say the prayer. I will not let fear stand in the way of my sobriety and ultimate happiness. So, whenever my personal... Sign in to see full entry.

Everyone Wonders about this Blogger..............................

Serenity is tested every day. How do we do? Every time I say the serenity prayer I try to focus my attention on the phrase "...to accept the things I cannot change...".

This blogger is baptized by fire!..........................................

The most amazing experience! Last night late, trying again to set the record (52 hours), I sat watching the Shopping Network. I swear to you, you can stare all you like, and four hours later you're still not sure what it is. Anyway, the gal was trying to sell some kind of stone with green or blue...

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things that I cannot change.......

What I cannot change or control, I could write a book on. My life is bound and I am limited. I can accept that, even though I would rather be skipping down the Champs-Elysees, going from cafe to cafe drinknig cafe au lait. You know, maybe someday. It was such a sweet time when I was there and young.... Sign in to see full entry.

The courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference. Acceptance means that you will be OK within your limitations, and not complain. Well I'm OK with most of the limitations that my own decisions have placed on my life. But I'm not sure about the not complaining part. You? Sign in to see full entry.

This blogger fell off the wagon............................................

"I sit here, one drink away from a drunken disaster and a hell of a lot of debauchery. And i am trying to remember that there is a hell of a lot of power in just being powerless." My old friend Jimmy O. said those words at every meeting until the day he died. Winter nights with a stocking cap all... Sign in to see full entry.

A good way to measure serenity.............................................

When my father died, as I have written about here before, I cried for three days. My kids brought me snacks in bed, and finally I asked for the laptop. I wrote a long poem entitled "Daddy Said!" It took my pain from me, and pissed everyone off. But it was all true. My view. I divorced, pretty much... Sign in to see full entry.
