Yesterday I stayed at work until I was done giving a presentation to the Medical Executive Committee. I really need to honor my commitment to give the best I can at work. So many people are so disheartened, they have basically thrown in the towel. I am not going to do that. Until they usher me out the door, I will honor my commitment to give my best effort for my paycheck.
So, I made a plan with my daughter to attend our state convention this weekend. I was unsure as to whether I should attend. I don't really like the big time AA events or the big time AA speakers. I spent too much time with them when I was married to my last husband and came to really dislike them. In Catholicism, we believe we are each called by God to do certain things, and I have felt that I am "called" to just sit at regular old AA meetings and share in a regular way about regular things, not about "big-time" things at "big-time" meetings. I can sit and read the big book with regular old stinky drunks (sorry to the beautiful women I sponsor - you are not in any way stinky, and I love you) and be at the regular meetings when everyone else is off at the big-time events.
I can also acknowledge that thousands of people are helped by those big time speakers - And if I say any more it will get ugly... so I am done!
Have a sweet sober day y'all.
