So I can go out for a run. I hope to get in a run and quickly bathe and get dressed and get to the 6:30 a.m. meeting. We shall see if this is possible.
It is nice to wake up and feel good. I got a good night's sleep last night - I went to bed just after posting the picture of my bedroom. There was no party next door last night and, indeed, I think there was no noise at all, at least none that woke me up.
I will get to two meetings today. Not because I "need" them, but because I want to go. I love Alcoholics Anonymous and the people in it and even if I really concentrated on it, in this lifetime I could not begin to repay what has been so freely given to me.
"I spend a great deal of time passing on what I learned to others who want and need it badly. I do it for four reasons:
1. Sense of duty.
2. It is a pleasure.
3. Because in so doing I am paying my debt to the man who took time to pass it on to me.
4. Because every time I do it I take out a little more insurance for myself against a possible slip." -- Alcoholics Anonymous (3rd ed.), p. 181 (Doctor Bob's Nightmare)
