ch ch ch ch changes...

It's been nice, these past couple weeks of change, what with the new job and all. I like the new clothes, ties, suit, watch... the banker look. I like the people I will be working with so far... They all seem very nice. I love the company itself, great boss, excellent benefits, good loan products, wonderful corporate sales/customer service philosphy. The compensation plan is excellent as well. and, in case you're waiting for the big BUT... there isn't one! Normally as an alcoholic, I'd have to have a big ole BUT after all the positive things I like about my new job. I even like the fact that I have to get up around 6 or so (for me that's early, if you recall, I was basically self-employed before lol). Getting up at this early hour gives me more time to wake up, read blogs, pray, prepare for the day, etc.

All in all, once again, change has proven to be good for me. Thankfully I have learned not to fear change. Ever since I got sober, my life has been one constant evolution. So much has changed about me, if I didn't know for a fact that I used to live the way I lived, I wouldnt believe it possible that someone could change so much, lol. I've come to a place in life where I look forward to new things, push myself to meet new people, try new things and fear nothing. Not only have my circumstances changed, but I have changed, evolved as a person. Now, don't get me wrong here lol... I still have many of the original lovely character defects (and the more redeeming character traits as well) but I have grown, and changed as a person as a result of the biggest change, getting sober. That set everything in motion. And wow, what a ride it has been!

placing myself in God's presence...

God, HP, JC, please help me stay sober today! Thank You for giving me the courage and faith to try new things and to place myself in Your stream of life that I micht simply be swept along with Your plan for me. Please guide my thinking, and come fill the place I've prepared for You in my heart as I try to remember to serve you and those around me. I can see some not so positive effects creeping into my behavior/attitude at times, so please help me with those moments of intolerance, irritibility and anger. Please be with my grandma, with our troops and their families, and the alkies and addicts who still have yet to grasp your life saving prorgam of recovery.

peace to all who come here...
