For the first time in my life, I'm not dreading and fearing what I eat on Thanksgiving Day! This is yet another miracle of recovery. I have a plan of action, I've discussed it with my sponsor, I'm preparing food that I can eat safely and I'm feeling blessed to not be terrified over it. I'm so grateful for recovery and to not have to be in that insanity! I'm actually feeling joy about it. Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Sharon R. comp eater/ anorexic/bulemic
Happy I.D.E.A day (International Day Experiencing Abstinence) we had our Saturday morning meeting based on this today and it was so inspiring to hear from each group member about how they go about putting balance into the 3 legged stool theory (physical recovery, emotional recovery, and spiritual recovery) Voices of Recovery page 323. Also we have choices every day page 204 Voices to Recovery. So many shared on how free do I want to be. Do I choose to be Abstinent today. I am so grateful for the shares I heard today. I choose Abstinence today so I can sleep tonight and wake up in the morning happy to be alive and abstinent.
Some very stressful things occurred this morning. I immediately went into my default panic mode. Then stopped myself and started praying to be accepting and understand I am powerless over events. I told myself panic is familiar to me but it is self-destructive. Having faith is so much more helpful. Things always work out and with much less stress when I release my crab claws and surrender! So grateful!
