I have learned so much from blogging. I have learned things about myself - like the fact that I really do have the discipline necessary to write something every single day - usually about the same time each day - and other things as well. I have learned a lot about other people too. I have learned about our fellowship. I have learned about our program. I have learned that some of my dearest held beliefs were just plain wrong-headed. I have learned to like people I didn't want to like, and I have learned that I should not trust people as easily as I have.
I have met people right here whose friendship I treasure. I don't consider these some kind of cyber friendships or remote friendships at all... but real true friendships.
I have been able to see what people who come to AA think about us, because they sit at their computers, in the privacy of their own homes, and tell us by blogging about it. If I will set aside my own defensiveness, I can take an honest look at it and see what my role may be. And it can never be bad to take an honest look at what my role is.
So, I want to thank all the bloggers who sit down every day and write something, and come by and comment. We really share things from our hearts and I feel that I really know you. I really appreciate what you have added to my sobriety.
