Good day all!
My apologies for those of you who come round each Monday looking for a little ditty we call Micro-Fiction Monday. Later today, I host our annual meeting for the chamber of commerce, and I have to give the "state of the chamber" report and all that fun stuff. So, I've been a little too busy for excessive bloggage.
However, as a part of my pre-speaking preparation, I felt it necessary to stop in and get centered. We've had a decent year overall with the chamber. Since taking over last September, we've made a lot of changes and have experienced a nice bit of growth, financially speaking. Weve taken our share of hits with members dropping, etc. but overall, we're well ahead of where we were last year at this time.
Why does that matter to you? Well, it doesn't lol. What matters is that I need to remain "right-sized" about all of this. I've been presented with a little bit of success here in the past year with my job and that's a great ptifall for an egotistical alcoholic to get way out of balance. So I write this morning to remind myself that any success I have is only possible with God and AA in my life. Sure, I've followed some direction and done some of what I should. However, I owe everything to God. Every good gift in my life comes from God and I have to recognize that or face the danger of drinking again for becoming way to narcisisstic.
I need to remain humble and grateful in everything I do and this is an excellent time to go through the exercise of working on my humility. Wish me luck lol.
