Mary Karr— 100% Badass- courageously voicing what most dare not admit and rather not hear. Enjoying her narration of her memoir, Lit. Feeling giddy and motivated by her first, angry, tight lipped prayer: “Higher Power-where the fuck have you been?”… “How dare I? Finally, showing up with machine gunfire on my ass. What business do I have praying and asking? I am thin, white, employed, with insurance, HIV negative, with reasonably straight teeth” hahahaha I love you♥ Mary Karr! Thank you for a much needed reminder of the gifts of recovery that are mine when I just show up and do the work, one next right thing at a time. Raw. Magical. Healing. Truth.
For Today: pray, hydrate, exercise, clean something(lots of choices, there). Mindful cleaning is the best I can do to be meditative and silent-mentally still, opening my mind to let the universe in.
This morning, I prayed. “Please help me to feel better, to feel good about preserving my well being” Tonight before bed: “Thank you”. Tomorrow I will do it again. And the day after.
