Good morning Paula, Toast, and to all the anonymous people reading this -- that I'll probably never hear from (but we know you're there!!
Yep. I'm grateful that I'm working, too! Even more grateful to be getting paid to work!
Paula, thanks for sharing the new routine. It gave me a fresh idea of something I used to do -- that I'm sure I'd enjoy doing again!
I used to carry a little card around w/ me that had the 3rd Step prayer on one side -- and the 7th Step prayer on the other side. I'll bet I'd read that little card 50 to 100 times during the day! It seemed to do for me, what the Serenity Prayer seemed to do for other people. And, it set up a new pattern of action and thinking in my head -- that became a habit for me. A good habit!
It also seemed like, the more I read it -- the more I got from it -- even though the words never changed.
I guess I got away from reading it on the card, after it became part of my memory. And, now that you've brought it up -- I'm thinking "I want to start doing that again! Reading it -- rather than just reciting it."
Wow! You gave me some direction today and probably neither one of us expected that one! Hows that saying go? "Expect the Unexpected?"
