Some rumination

This week I will have been in Al-Anon half my life. What's weird to think is half my life ago I doubted I would be this age. But I am. And moreover, I'm still practicing my program to the best of my ability. I remember hearing another member once, who said that being here for x-years didn't make her perfect. It just meant when she lost it, she had the tools to get back on track sooner. So it's easier now to not sweat the small stuff, easier to let the anger go, easier to accept that just for today I am exactly where I am and I'm grateful that my lessons, though they still hurt, are not as painful as the ones I've come through.

Of all the "Just for Todays", my favorite is "Just for Today I will be unafraid. Especially I will not be afraid to enjoy what is beautiful, and to believe that as I give to the world, so the world will give to me."
