I'm supposed to be trying on my martian dress right now. Instead I decided to write a post real quick. Ape is not going to be happy with me...that I'm stalling so much. I'm scared of the metallic fabric!
But I've been thinking about my friend. Drazil. It's her birthday today- and I can't stop thinking about how I hope her day is so wonderful. How I hope that she is indeed enjoying and celebrating her life. I hope she is laughing and having some birthday cake if she wants it. :) It's a day of celebration today! This beautiful woman who affects us all in some positive way was brought into this world. It's a better place because of her- whether she recognizes it or not.
The scale is starting to come down and I'm happy. It's been 1 week! Tonight is my second ARP class and I'm excited. I've been reading step 2 already and I love it. It's about hope- how we can go from feeling discarded and forgotten to finding that glimmer of hope. How we can go from hopeless to laughing, talking, smiling, attending meetings, praying, seeking solace, reading things that inspire us, and writing in our recovery journals. One of my favorite lines from the workbook this week, "No habit, no addiction, no rebellion, no transgression, no offense exempted from the promise of complete forgiveness." I love that. Can I completely forgive myself for my weaknesses? Yes, I can. Can I completely overcome them? Yes, I can. Can I have hope? Yes!! I can and I do.
That's really all I'm going to write about today. I have a lot going on but wanted to just take a moment while the ARP stuff was still fresh in my mind. May you all have a wonderful day today..
