I was looking at my sobriety date ..... the day the month the year has all changed, At one point, a good point in my life, I had accumulated many days of sobriety, almost 10 years of taking it one day at a time. I dont know what my problem is this time, I just had a few months under my belt and bam again.....starting all over, I do have a couple weeks, I know what it takes, I know what I need to do . there is so much good in my life and so many things at risk to lose....if I start down that path again......so God, why is it so hard this time? I know its simple, just say no, decide not too, so why am I lacking that strength., I pray everyday for it.......Im just thinking out loud, and I cant wait to hear some response, thanks all for being here it does help!!...........................

We cross paths for a reason
I believe there are no coincidences in life, everything whether good or bad is meant to be exactly the way it is. I also believe that every person who crosses our path has done so for a reason. Whether they are put there to teach or be taught, to be helped or to help we do not know. The lessons in love, sorrow, compassion, tolerance, guilt, pain, passion, strength, the list goes on have all been experienced with interaction, never alone... so what is your reason in my life, Ive asked this question alot lately, for some I most undoubtedly know the answer for others the reason is yet to be revealed, regardless I know its not just chance--- there is most definitely a reason.......... What will be yours ?
REASON SEASON LIFETIME by Anonymous
People always come into your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime.
When you figure out which it is, you know exactly what to do.
When someone is in your life for a REASON,
it is usually to meet a need you have expressed outwardly or inwardly.
They have come to assist you through a difficulty,
or to provide you with guidance and support,
to aid you physically, emotionally, or even spiritually.
They may seem like a godsend to you, and they are.
They are there for the reason you need them to be.
Then, without any wrong doing on your part or at an inconvenient time,
this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end.
Sometimes they die. Sometimes they just walk away.
Sometimes they act up or out and force you to take a stand.
What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled; their work is done.
The prayer you sent up has been answered and it is now time to move on.
When people come into your life for a SEASON,
it is because your turn has come to share, grow, or learn.
They may bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh.
They may teach you something you have never done.
They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy.
Believe it! It is real! But, only for a season.
And like Spring turns to Summer and Summer to Fall,
the season eventually ends.
LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons;
those things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation.
Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person/people (anyway);
and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas in your life.
It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant.
Thank you for being part of my life.
Ive posted this on my old page but had to repost because this is one of my favs.
It doesn't interest me what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for
and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart's longing.
It doesn't interest me how old you are. I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool
for love, for your dream, for the adventure of being alive.
It doesn't interest me what planets are squaring your moon...
I want to know if you have touched the centre of your own sorrow
if you have been opened by life's betrayals, or have become shriveled and closed
from fear of further pain.
I want to know if you can sit with pain, mine or your own, without moving to hide it
or fade it, or fix it.
I want to know if you can be with joy, mine or your own
if you can dance with wildness, and let the ecstasy fill you to the tips of your fingers and toes
without cautioning us, to be careful, to be realistic, to remember the limitations of being human.
It doesn't interest me if the story you are telling me is true.
I want to know if you can disappoint another to be true to yourself.
If you can bear the accusation of betrayal and not betray your own soul.
If you can be faithless and therefore trustworthy.
I want to know if you can see Beauty even when it is not pretty every day.
And if you can source your own life from its presence.
I want to know if you can live with failure, yours and mine, and still stand at the edge of the lake
and shout to the silver of the full moon, "Yes."
It doesn't interest me to know where you live or how much money you have.
I want to know if you can get up after the night of grief and despair, weary and bruised to the bone
and do what needs to be done.
It doesn't interest me who you know or how you came to be here.
I want to know if you will stand in the centre of the fire with me and not shrink back.
It doesn't interest me where or what or with whom you have studied.
I want to know what sustains you from the inside when all else falls away.
I want to know if you can be alone with yourself and if you truly like the company you keep
in the empty moments.
