I'm doing OK. Really. I am very busy at work. I am, thankfully, at the point in my triathlon training where I need to be working the hardest. And I got to see my sweetheart last night for the first time in nearly 2 weeks. It was so nice to see him, sitting on the sofa like a couple of teenagers. He told me a story that had me laughing so hard and for so long. Laughter is a little miracle. It releases so much tension in the body.
Tonight I am taking a bike ride with my friend the Rec Therapist. I think I should be able to keep up with her. I may or may not take a swim on the way to the bike ride.
"It may surprise you that you will almost never hear an AA speaker sound self-pitying about being deprived of alcohol. Identifying with the speaker's past may not be as important as getting an impression of his or her present life. The speaker usually has found, or is reaching for, some contentment, peace of mind, solutions to problems, zest for living, and a kind of health of the spirit which you, too, want. If so, hang around. Those qualities are contagious in AA." -- Living Sober, p. 80
