They say the cockroach will still be roaming the earth, long after evolved life has done itself in. Not so sure I believe that. But I do often feel like a cockroach in that I keep doing things long after everyone else quits or dies.
This morning I am heading out to the 6:30 meeting. I am meeting a sponsee there. We have been meeting there for a couple of years. Years and years ago, I used to meet MY sponsor at the 6:30 a.m. Wednesday meeting. I have been meeting SOMEBODY every Wednesday morning for a long time.
After the meeting, I will head to work, just like I have for the last 14.5 years. Same roads, same parking lot, same door, same stairs.
I will pull my bowl of plain nonfat yogurt with a cup of blueberries out of my bag, and get the Uncle Sam Cereal out of my bottom desk drawer, and eat my breakfast... just as I do each M-F.
I could go on and on throughout my day, but I am sure you get the idea. But you might have gotten the WRONG idea.
I am so grateful that I get to do the same things over and over. I am grateful that I am consistent. I am grateful that I can be counted upon. I am grateful that I have been able to maintain the same job, house, meeting, friends, etc. for a while now.
Every night when my head hits the pillow, I thank God. And every morning when my feet hit the floor, I thank God.
It's a good thing.
