Journal: What's Going on With Me?

I feel like I haven't posted in a while, even though I have.  Hah.  So this is going to be sort of a rambling post.

I attended my women's group last night.  I wasn't going to but someone new asked if I would go with them and I said I would.  I have decided though, that I'm going to start attending the general ARP meeting on Sunday nights for a while rather than either of my women's meetings.  I feel the need to blend in and be a nobody.  I want to go to a group where no one knows me, or my story so I can just sit and soak in the counsel of the plethora of old-timers that are found there.  I really feel the strong desire and need to work my own program right now.  So that's my plan.

~~~~~~~~~~

I've started listing Step Assignments on my blog.  I've completed listing all the Step 1 Assignments.  They can also be found listed in order on the right hand side of my blog.  I'm really excited about this!  I'm happy to see that people are already posting their thoughts on the different assignments and it's exciting!  I love it!  Lot's of healing to come from that!

~~~~~~~~~~

I'm fighting the desire to isolate.  I am having a hard time differentiating between isolation and need to spend time on myself and get my grip.  It's tough to see through the fog sometimes!  So I'm striving to just maintain a healthy balance.  I'm still getting outside and I'm not avoiding life.  But at the same time, I'm avoiding taking on extra things.  I'm also remaining consistent in working my steps.  I also plan on starting to listen to all of the conference talks in more detail.

The semester is soon coming to a close.  I'm working on studying for biology exams as well as a project for my Psychology of Interpersonal Relationships class.  It's a fun project that I've named The Honesty Project.  It's still in the works but I plan to blog about it once it's complete and presented.

~~~~~~~~~~

AWESOME EXCITING NEWS!  I received a "by invitation only" invitation to the SA Lifelines Benefit Dinner coming up at the end of this month.  I'm so excited for that!  It's awesome to stretch my branches and begin to dip my toes in other projects.

~~~~~~~~~~

Speaking of other projects... I also presented for the UVU Chapter of Fight the New Drug a few weeks ago.  Did I blog about this already?  I can't remember.  Forgive me if I'm repeating myself.  It's a common occurrence.  Anyway - it was REALLY awesome!  They asked me to be a guest speaker.  I shared my struggle and recovery in front of a room of 20 or so men and women.  I was surprised and excited to have so many questions and was grateful for another opportunity to share recovery.

~~~~~~~~~~

The weekend is upon me.  I am attending a couple of conference calls in the morning with people striving to get women's groups up and going in other states.  AWESOME right?  Love it!

Anyway, love you guys!

Ezekiel 34:11-12,16

"For thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I, even I, will both search my sheep, and seek them out. As a shepherd seeketh out his flock in the day that he is among his sheep that are scattered; so will I seek out my sheep, and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day. I will seek that which was lost, and bring again that which was driven away, and will bind up that which was broken, and will strengthen that which was sick"
