The Fine Art of Letting Go

holding_on_and_letting_go_by_klcarr-d4mh2l9 In my last post I said I was going to write about the worry over my mom and my sister. I also said I was going to write it the next day. Now you know not to trust anything I say. 😉

But seriously, I went to an amazing meeting this morning. And it wasn’t just because it was called the Sunday morning Amazing Grace Al-Anon meeting, either. We read from today’s reading in Hope for Today, and what I heard most of all was about letting go.

Boy, do I need to let go. I’ve been ashamed to talk about this here, but since I talked with my sponsor and with my friend Sherrie, who guest posted here and writes here, at Sherrie Theriault’s Blog, I feel better. My uber sponsor bolstered my spirits by speaking of a few small resentments she had rattling around in her head.

But what was most important was what Sherrie did. First, she made me laugh. Laughter is very important for the soul. 2. She let me know that I have a double standard, one for myself and one for everybody else, and I’m much harder an myself. 3. That resentments sometimes have layers, and if my sister just stopped drinking seven months ago, it’s not surprising I still have resentment left; and 4. That it’s okay, even good to let readers know other seasons of your soul. You need to know that there was a whole season I did not go to meetings. More importantly, you needed to hear from me during that time, that I was still here, what I was doing, how I was doing, so that you too could read and perhaps say, “Oh yes, that’s me.” or “Gosh, I don’t ever want to go there.”

It was great to see my sponsor. We hadn’t seen each other in a while, what with one thing and another, and we just held each other for the longest time. “Look at you!” she said. “Look at you!” said I. We made a time to get together on Wednesday.

Peace out.

  1. Νew, high prοfile diets and complicated diet plans for women will provide you with all kinds of information with regard to special еating programs and celеbrity profiles.
    So, you’ll соnsume much less at your mеals and reduсed the total tοtal οf calories you try to eat.
    In all there were a total of 193 participants who had nearlу identical 1400 calorie diet menu for women
    anԁ 1600 calοrie diet menu for men.


  2. However it is important to realize that the Fat Loss Factor
    is not a panacea that will magically remove any fat and If you are looking for a
    “lose 10 pounds in 10 days magical programs”, then The Fat Loss Factor is probably not for you.

    Now you already know what can affect this fat loss, but maybe yourself
    not sure whether you can do this or not. If you want extra support to write
    your goals in the STAR format just write an email to info@loseweighttowin.
