"I've been sick..."OK - that doesn't work for me either, but it's the closest to the truth that I can find today.
No, I'm not in ill health (thank God!) - what's been going on is:
- a new job (thank God!)
- lots of work on commitments that have fallen behind
- a deep seated ego-illness that has decimated my spirit
- judgments by myself and others around me
From my own life, that of sponsees and virtually every direction I've turned to over the past few weeks, the message has been all about: "...what is it you're really committed to today? Life on a spiritual basis or dying from the disease of alcoholism?"
Today, I ask God to remove my fear and direct me to who he would have me be.
God is good and AA works...
Blessings to us all...
