Hi PeaceJoy and thank you for helping me see that your 3 resolutions are things that I have accomplished this year.
I have kept a journal since I was 13 (so that's about 100 years now!
) It's all on paper: my first love, first heartbreak, first drink, last drink, the insanity of early sobriety... It is so awesome to write and see things emerge that I didn't even know were inside me! I get to see how I've grown and where I'm still a slacker. I can't say enough good things about journaling! Just be sure to keep your journal in a safe place!
Cleaned out 30 years of rat- packing from my attic, had a yard sale & donated the rest to the veteran's association.
My house is the epitome of simplicity! In fact, it was too stark and I had to add a bit of fluff for hominess!
Finances are under control.
This year's resolution is to be taking meetings into the jail. I've wanted to do this for a long time & in January I will start.
My sponsor died suddenly in July and it was a heart-wrenching loss. I got together with one of her other sponsees and we tried to figure out what we could do to honor her memory and pass on more fully what she had given us. Remembering that she did jail meetings, this is what we came up with & I'm excited! I've been warned not to get my expectations up, but who knows? There may be someone like me who thinks this may be her last chance to get sober.
Happy new year!
