Hi Larry: Thanks so much for your inspirational post on my thread. You are a wonderful and giving spirit … I appreciate your support.
I need to read back on your thread a bit to see how things are progressing for you in your life. I hope all is well … I’m sure that like me, you’re starting to enjoy life as it is meant to be enjoyed. Isn’t this whole process an epiphany??? While I hate what I have done to myself by gambling, I love this new awareness that the recovery process has brought to me. Life is so much richer … I seem to be laughing more at the silly things, like my dog’s obsession with swimming and waves … and how he is so often side-swiped by them. I pause more often to bring myself into the present and become aware of the warmth of the sun on my shoulders, the sound of my kids’ laughter as they watch their shows, brief hugs from my husband as he passes.
Of course life is not perfect, but isn’t it lovely to enjoy the perfect moments … instead of being anesthetized by lights, bell and whistles.
Day 62 for me, and today, I will not gamble. I wish the same for you.
All the best.
RGThis moment is all we really have. Be happy in it.
