I found spark people in september 2009 and I am totally fascinated - there are not many days that I have not logged in so far.

I have found that support from people who are struggling with the same issues as me, really helps.

In new year 2014 I am struggling and taking two step forwards, one step back and making great plans for 2014...

I had the recommendation to put up some meaningful quotes and here goes:

If you spend all your time looking for Him,
you might miss Her when She shows up.

Neale Donald Walsch

"The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur
when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort,
that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers."

M. Scott Peck
:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~::~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:

"Destiny is not a matter of chance;
it is a matter of choice.
It is not a thing to be waited for;
it is a thing to be achieved."

William Jennings Bryan

"When we honestly ask ourselves which persons in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share
our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand."

Henri Nouwen, Out of Solitude

'Come to the edge', he said.

Oprah Winfrey
:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:

A life lacking the emotional upheavals
of depression and despair, fear and
anxiety, grief and sadness, anger and
the agony of forgiving, confusion and
doubt, criticism and rejection, will not
only be useless to ourselves, it will be
useless to others.

We must look inside ourselves to free ourselves. The issue of all growth is to make a change for the better and then to have an unrelenting willingness to shoulder the responsibility this entails (The Big Book,p.115).

Each day is an opportunity for personal growth. Self-esteem grows as we do in recovery. Without dreams and goals, there is nothing keep use moving forward. Out Higher Power accompanies us in our own personal journey each step of the way.

I am empowered to succeed because I realize there is power in powerlessness.

I hope you have a Sparktacular Week! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Courage is very important. Like a muscle, it is strengthened by use. A very dear SparkFriend this week posted on our Recovering Alcoholics team thread, Sobriety Blessings, this incredible reflection, "Sobriety has given me the courage to do the right thing in spire of my fear."

In my blog, Strength Training Builds More Than Muscle, I focused on having the courage to change our lifestyle and to reach our goals, our heart's desires.

Success is not final.
Failure is not fatal.
It is the courage to continue that counts.

Blessings today and always! emoticon

Courage is fear that has said its prayers!

I completed Steps Four and Five this week with my sponsor. I am a grateful recovering alcoholic.This has been a soul searching and incredibly empowering week for me. I just want to share something from my AA meeting today:

" Higher Power take my will and my life. Guide me in my recovery.
Show me how to live. "

One incredible new team member of Recovering Alcoholics reminded me how important it is to revisit Step One each and every day. I do this and also revisit daily Steps Two and Three also. The inspirational thought I have shared speaks to Step Three:

Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of
God as we understood Him.

The serenity which floods my soul is indescribable, but I know you have experienced this and can share in the joy of living sober!

Blessings and a BIG emoticon

I look at my beautiful cactus which miraculously blooms at Christmas and now at Easter and I just amazed how God is able to create through this plant such wonderful reminders of important days. Our Higher Power simply rocks! emoticon May you have an extraordinary Easter weekend!

E mpty, how

A mazing, they were

S urprised! It was the

T hird Day after HIs death, how

E extraoridnary! Jesus had

R isen! Alleluia!


Blessings and emoticon
