Whew I needed that.
I think last night was one of the best conversations I've had with my sponsor in a while. We both owned our sides of our relationship and the defined what will work best for us going forward.
It was wonderful. We decided that it's time to delve through the steps again, go a little deeper, learn a lot more. I am both excited and scared of that prospect.
No pain no gain as they say. I'm grateful for the opportunity and am ready to embrace them again with more honesty & faith than I had the first time around.
As far as the elusive sponsee, or potential sponsee. I have decided to tell him that I can only work with what worked for me and if he's not willing to do that then perhaps there is someone else who could help him in the way that he need. I am willing to listen if he needs.
A part of my Dad's spirit - is a part of mine.
