That's a topic I can sink my teeth into. My whole life has been unexpected. When you don't make decisions about your life, you tend to leave your self pretty much up for grabs. I know it sounds crazy. Doesn't make decisions. I thought all alcoholics were in self will, right. Right but the beauty of it is, I didn't have to take responsibility for making the wrong one. I could blame every body else. Poor innocent me. Perfect plan right. WRONG.
Do you know how bad other people can screw things up for you, then you have to fix it. Oh always Me, Me Me. There's your self pity.
Any way now I have a set of tools and a plan of action. Do I use it all the time. No. Life still takes the wind out of my sails on a regular basis. I seem to get back on track a little faster each time.
Thanks for letting me share folks. Putting my character defects in print, brings them alive so I can see them.
