Dont know what to say

Postby 1love » Tue Apr 20, 2010 11:16 am

Hello,

I am new to the site, and dont know where to start or what to say. I have been sober for a little over a year now, I have worked thru the steps and I am happier than I have ever been. Wake up daily giving thanks. I think thats it for now. I hope to find some great insight and friends on this site.

1love.....

Thank you for the welcome! I appreciate it.

Im not sure what it is you want to learn about. I dont want to bore you with stuff about myself. :roll:

I am very lucky. I have wonderful friends and family that love and support me. I have a great job, that I love. I have learned not to get upset about the things that I cannot change and have no control over. All it does is make me upset and the problem still exists...so why bother?! I give something 15 minutes....if at the end of that 15 minutes, im still upset, well then, I just build a bridge and get over it! It really helps. I have reduced my stress levels by up to 98%:) . I have also learned to take time for myself. That I am an important person that I need to spend time with as well. This life is a blessing, and as I have seen way to many times in my life, it can be cut short at anytime. I live for today and hope for tomorrow and leave the rest to my angels.

Alright, now its your turn. Tag...you're it. :lol:

My turn :lol:

I've just discovered that you -- have a lot of good experience, strength and hope to share with us and with those that come later and with those that read the forums but never participate other than by reading.

That's what I learned. :wink: I do personally understand and relate to what you've shared. That has happened to me, also. For me, it took a long time for it to materialize. And, had I not been so hard-headed and determined to do things my way, years before -- I could have had it sooner, by finding someone like you and asking "How'd you do that? Do you think I might be able to do that too -- if I do what you did?" :wink:

So! I hope you stick around here and share with us!
