Rejoice

Today was good. Now if I can only remember why. It felt pretty chaotic. I like chaotic. Chaotic is how I feel at home. I do not know if that is really healthy. I had the most encouraging afternoon and evening ever. I spent the afternoon discussing my novel with a friend. It was truly a delightful way to spend a meeting. So much better than almost any other meeting imaginable. Then I had step study tonight. It was the ACTION lesson. My life is filled with action right now.

Tomorrow I go to my new counselor. I am a bit nervous. I will be thankful when I actually know what will happen. I have been putting off dealing with some parts of this for ten years. As I told my step study sisters tonight, I thought I got through recovery without having to face the things I am going to have to face. It is not that I was trying to get out of it (well, I was), as much as it was not ready to be dealt with and I felt like I was not going to have to deal with it. I decided tonight if I ever want to have to deal with something, I should just get into deeper relationships. That will bring up the issues.

A really good closure to a really good day. Some days I feel like I have made it to step 12. It is a really, really good place to be. Tomorrow I may have to take step one all over again, but today I am going to rejoice because it was a crazy awesome day!

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. – 2 Corinthians 12:9
