We are going back to the basics.
Goal #1 - Increase focus on actions required for Abstinence
Goal #2 - Increase focus on the necessity of working all 12 Steps
Goal #3 - Increase focus on individual's responsibility to carry the message
I arrived in Cleveland with the beginnings of a bad cold, which progressed quite quickly into a sinus infection...which then became a severe sinus infection and conjunctivitis. Needless to say, I was not up to snuff and spent both days of the Convention in my hotel bed. As I lay in bed I had a long chat with my HP, wondering why I was brought all the way to Cleveland, only to find myself bedridden. The message I received was, It is what it is.
So often I find it is quite easy for me to beat myself up about what I believe are my short-comings. What I realized is that if I had been anywhere else, I would have soldiered on, right through this sickness and probably become much sicker. As it was, I slept. That probably got me through the worst of it and got me back home.
So, it is what it is.
Now, I am comforted with the care of my medical professionals and I am slowly returning to good health, getting ready for Assembly and Convention. I thank my HP, my sponsor and this program....I remain abstinent, joyous and free!
