Word Up

Word Up

If a picture is worth 1000 words, then a word is worth 1000 pictures.

Since catching wind of this, I am much more selective with my words. In the past, words tumbled mindlessly around in my head stirring up emotions, frequently negative, that could spontaneously combust into a tirade or a tantrum, or simmer as internal gloom, doom, and fear.

Willingness: Step 8

Willingness: Step 8

Once I became willing to accept that despite my myriad mishaps and blunders, I was whole perfect and complete in the moment with considerable room to grow, I could more easily consider doing the actions required in this Step. Going beyond my comfort zone in front of others was more than I could do at first. Even now there is still resistance from the ego at times. But it is my willingness to face myself that gives me enough insight to consider facing others.

Acceptance

Acceptance

I get it that I am a spiritual being having a human experience. Sometime though the human part of me bloats up and forgets that I know better. Those times that I kiss up to someone I disrespect to avoid confrontation. Those times I wimp out and don’t state my truth because someone might not like it.  Those times that I get an anticipatory thrill out of pushing someone’s button when I know in advance I am about to do so. Those times I make excuses to put off until tomorrow that which I already put off yesterday.
