Today I am happy. Tonight I am happy. I have been quite frustrated most of the day, but I finished my week at the homeless shelter. Something about serving with a group of people in a kitchen always changes my outlook. I love it. I love that place! I got a blister there tonight. I think I am veering off the original purpose of this daily blog – to tell you what you needed to know about recovery to help you decide if you wanted to join me.
Today I was pretty upset. I have been pretty upset for the last few days. I am frustrated. I am tired of making some of the sacrifices I am currently making. I do not want to quit making them. I am not ready to quit making them, but making them right now is making me cry. Sometimes dying to myself is really incredibly painful. I get more than a little tired of it.
I was able to have X time today, which is also part of the reason I am feeling better now. Time to process my emotions with God is so important. I have been crying with Him a lot. The good things in my life are literally causing me pain, so are the bad things, but I am used to bad things causing me pain.
Life is good.
