Happy Thanksgiving everybody!

Had a lovely meal with my family, enjoying each other. Nice that food is just out of the way once I decide to weigh and measure and stick with my food plan.

I’ve learned that if I ask for the next right step- listen and follow my life is so much better. I write and pray daily it helps me connect and know what I need to w

I used to struggle a lot. Most of it was due to me not wanting to ask for help. When growing up, I must have learned that asking for help was a sign of weakness. In fact, its just the opposite. Asking my HP to help me with this disease was my first step in to feeling the clutches of it let me go. I think we have a child like view of our HP due to the way we are brought up in religion. I think we are taught that if you do right, you are praised. If you do wrong, you are punished and that there is no gray area or in between. Now that I am more mature in my spirituality, I see my HP as my best friend. Any one of us that has a best friend or BFF knows that we can share the most intimate part of ourselves with them and they accept us for who we are. Isn't that a gift? Our HP is our gift to this disease. I have learned that I can't do this without my HP. I have tried and failed many times over.

Step 11: Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God, as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us, and the power to carry that out.

Principle Eleven: Spiritual Awareness

Tradition 11: Our public relations policy is based on attraction rather than promotion: we need always maintain personal anonymity at the level of press, radio films, television, and other public media of communication.

How do you practice these?
