Post a quote from our lit that speaks to you today.  Talk about what it means to you or how you use it in your daily life.

This is actually a repunctuation of something Kat said in the meeting tonight...

"H.O.W... It will come."

Basically, a reminder for me to be patient, even if I'm not feeling especially "HOW-y" today, it will come, if I keep coming back.

Turning it over!

Whew! this is a biggie for me right now! Had to be driven home yesterday from the meeting I was soooooo sick to my stomach and my dear friend told me that it was stress that was causing this and I had to agree! at that moment i realized that I must put this in Gods hands and whatever will be, will be! Turn it over to God!
I am so grateful to be back to work in the industry that I have worked my entire life, plus! for a Man that knows my entire history and is willing to give me a chance to regain some of my dignity. I always Loved my work and was very good at it but I get sooooooo fearfull, soooooo stressed that I will not measure up! That i will make a mistake, that I will NOT, the list goes on and on! I know in my heart that God put me there for a reason. Since I have been there 3 people have been let go, there are 30 people in the office, and I can't help but wonder if I am next to get the ax. I have also heard myself thinking that If I AM let go I would never be able to hold my head up again and how would I survive that? sigh, It's no wonder I am sick LOL in more ways than one! Anyhow, I woke up this morning and prayed that Gods will, not mine be done. I know I must go to work and do the very best I can and not trip on the out come, it's in Gods capable hands. Today my montra will be, I will turn it over!

Honesty, for me that starts with self because if I am lying to me then how is whats coming out of my mouth to others the truth.

Open mindedness, this is when I can hear things I need to hear whether it be from a piece of NA literature or in person

Willingness some times this can be tough for me sometimes I have to ask god for the willingness because I am not always eager to do the things that I know need to be done

H.A.L.T.  Hungry, Angry, Lonely, or Tired. 

This one is one I need to apply in my life more, lately especially, since I seem to be so volatile to begin with, due to the changes in my life and the surgeries and finally the relapsing on pain killers.  If I am to succeed in this program, I need to go back to the basics.  This is about as basic as it gets.  If I am any one of these things, and usually I am several of them at once, sometimes ALL - just doing something about these basics of self-care will help me be better able to deal with everyday life, and also with the harder days.
