Those were my new years resolutions. I just went back and read my journal entry for Jan 1, 2014. So far, so good.
In early sobriety I remember making a conscious decision each day to be happy. It is such a simple thing, but so powerful. Over the years, I really lost that. Today my goal is to be loving and peaceful, which brings great joy.
Some highlights from my journal entry:
These days and years are not dues to pay – this is my life.
Stop feeling like a loser over my financial situation, stop feeling like a loser over anything. seriously.
It is all good. Dear Lord, please help me to be of service to you by being a more joyful person.
Nothing is perfect, but everything is good. My yoga this morning was wonderful. I have a busy day, but it is a day when I can be helpful to others. I am meeting with several of my staff, and I can be a boss who helps them learn and grow. Not a harsh task master, but also not a phony all-is-well lets- sweep-it-all-under-the-carpet boss.
I am so so so so so grateful.
