Changing the things I can

Good morning World!

It has taken me forever it seems to get through all the steps here online. Even though I have written only sporadically, I have been working them daily. I have found that sometimes working them is easier than writing about them. (LOL) Then there are other days when I would rather write about it than deal with the pain of dealing with the steps. So... guess you have to take both the good and bad with life. One thing I have learned with all this is that life happens! What changes is us. We change within. Our reactions change to how we deal with life. I am finding the things that used to worry me and throw me into major stresses are not as bad today as they used to be. I think it is because I finally learned to let HP take over my life and do the work that needs to be done. Today I am again starting on Step 4... looking within at those things which I need to work on with HP's help. I know that there are going to be things I will recall that may cause some fear. The good thing is that dealing with them, will help to make me a better person. That is my goal! So, today I take a leap of faith and put my hand in His. He will lead me where I need to go today.

As we walk this journey together, remember that you are not alone. We can do this one day at a time. Have a blessed abstinent day. May HP fill your day with blessings from above!

Hi Cindy!

Thanks for emailing me! I've been looking online for other people in OA and haven't found much luck...guess we're taking the anonymity a bit far...haha. :-)

I just started blogging this year and thought it would be a great way to keep up with my OA progress....wish I had done this years ago. It's kind of my "online diary" I guess. I did manage to find a group of people on SparksPeople who are in an OA forum there...but they don't comment much. OA has changed my life in so many wonderful ways!

I would love to share this journey with someone else! I'm always looking for someone to share the experience, strength and hope with.

Peace and Serenity,
Sheri (my alias is "Shezzi"--a nickname my Irish grandmother gave me)

Lovely post, Cindy. Glad that you let HP take over your life and do the work that needs to be done.

Look like another OA(er) above.

And remember you're not alone on Your Journey To Recovery.
