Looking fwd to connecting with you all.
Hi @picklegirl, let me think on it. One thing that really helped me with the Secret was taking notes. Sounds crazy but when I was in school that helped get it into my memory feedback loop. The hardest part is not thinking about what you do not want.
@picklegirl, a few movies I know that have to do with recovery are 28 Days, Days of Wine and Roses (personal favorite), Clean & Sober, My Name is Bill W, When a Man Loves a Woman (I didn’t care for this one as much as the others).
Good for you @tipsytoegal. Sometimes our minds take abit of unravelling dont they but you seem to have a very good grip on whats happening for you. Your flute is a real anchor in your life and you recognise this. Go you.
I understand why you dont want to go through another step4 @sober4real and thanks for your advice. And yes we do have lots of positive aspects to our character and musnt forget this! im a glass half emptyl girl when it comes to my feeling about me. Cheers.x
@annie I totally understand. That’s the one thing about the program that I focus on is making sure I’m acknowledging just as many of my assets of defects. Let me know how it goes! Bet you will be walking on air when it’s over…
