How do you react?

Sat at an “envelope” meeting this morning, which is where people pass around an envelope at the table and each person picks out a little piece of paper, and whatever is on the paper is what you talk about.

It may be a step, a slogan, or what have you. It was absolutely one of the best tables I’ve sat at in a long time. Not necessarily because of what my piece of paper read, or because of what I talked about, but because of what the woman, Marty, said next to me.

“Our first reaction is our disease, and our second reaction is our recovery.”  

That is SO cool. Which tells me I usually need to let myself sit and think before I say anything. 😉

Hope you are having a lovely Sunday. Peace out.

  1. Wow! Love that idea! I told my boyfriend about the “envelope meeting” and he said he had been to a “hat meeting” before which is the same gist. I hope to be able to go to one of these sometime.. sounds like a fun way to keep it simple and stay sober. God Bless!


    • Yeah, it was like whatever you pulled out was what you needed that morning, you know? Very cool. Thanks, right back atcha! 🙂


Lay it on me!
