Sometimes we have to feel lost. We aren’t sure of the way. We just put one foot in front of the other and then one day everything feels a bit more normal again. Always around my anniversary I feel “squirly”. I get a case of the why do I need to share my story”? Why did so and so leave the fellowship?” What is my purpose? HOw come I keep making some of the same mistakes and dealing with the same issues?” Then a lightbulb will come. If it is working for you stay. Why they left is none of your business. Do meetings make you happy? Then they are working for you. Sharing our story connects us to others. It reminds us where we came from. And it is the glue that holds our program together!
So that day when then sun shines brighter and then birds chirp louder and everything feels easy. It is a gift just like all those years of sober living! Enjoy!
