Life washes on. I went to a step mtg that just started this year. We were on step 6, reading a step book that mentioned looking at the pay off to holding on to our defect. I don't know if fearfulness has ever been listed as my defect but it has certainly bothered me this winter. Self pity has definately been on my list and that has been a biggy, too. So, the payoff? Attention from others. How about if I a) act 'as if' I feel full of spirit and faith b) face the light instead of peering into the dark c) firmly bring my thoughts and my mouth back where my feet are, keeping it in the day banishes 100% of my worries What's good about today is that I can do that!
