I've been in some great meetings lately and surprise surprise, I feel SO much better, SO much more a part of and life is easier. Persepctive is a beautiful thing. 37 days until the wedding and I find I need meetings & fellowship more & more, keeping me grounded so I'm able to continue showing up for life. I LOVE that this program allows me to do that.
For 5 + years I've heard the phrase: "The newcomer is the most important person in the room" and of course when I was a newcomer I thought - duh! of course I am (true alcoholic?) Yesterday as I sat in another beginners meeting listening, I realized how important they truly are to this alcoholic. As previously mentioned I have felt a lack of urgency to my sobriety, it's a levelled out part of life...but hearing these new comers talk about where they've just been has really opened my eyes & heart again to how dire it IS, and today I need those reminders.
I'm so grateful for this program - Thank you all for being a part of it.
A part of my Dad's spirit - is a part of mine.
