Thanks SCL! I like your plant analogy. So true too, since plants want to grow and will grow in the most oppressed situations.

These little ditties that I've been posting comes from a CoDA book. The following post comes from notes that I get twice a week. I post it if I can particularly relate to it. See next post.

A note from the Universe for May 14:

Changing what you have, comes from changing who you are.

And changing who you are comes from changing what you think.

Which is why I made the latter so easy.

Hey, I think it's Friday...

The Universe

Because changing what you think, ultimately changes your words, your actions, the kind of music you listen to, the movies you watch, the places you visit, the friends you hang out with, and, yes, even how you look in jeans.

Ooops, posted on the wrong thread. Red always liked the "notes from the Universe", guess that's why I posted here by mistake.

May 15

In This Moment, I let go of my ways of coping that do not work.

When I feel tense and frustrated, if my stomach is tied up in knots, I ask myself, "Is what I am doing to cope really working? Is it making things better?" The answer is usually, "No!" I'm trying to fix the unfixable.

When my controlling and caretaking aren't working, all I need to do is let go. As the tension and frustration flow out of me, I am free to focus on the things I can control. The first thing is: What can I do to take care of myself? What do I want? More anguish or peace? The choice is obvious.

In This Moment, my feelings become clear.

It has taken a while, in recovery, to name and claim my feelings. It may still take me days to figure out how I feel about a particular situation. I may have to sit with that feeling until I'm able to work through it. I often discover what is true for me by writing about my feelings. It's part of my journey. As I grow and heal, my feelings become clearer, and I reap the promises of recovery.

I like these "moments" too.

Not only do they remind me of how far I've come ( learning to use the tools that are posted, and getting results) but also pointing out things i need to work on.

Just too busy to do my own homework lately. Or communicate much here.

Thanx ((Hep))

In This Moment, I am aware of my value and worth.

I have finally learned that I have inherent value and worth, given to me by my Higher Power. Because I know this, I no longer need to go into a shame attack when I've made a mistake or come up short in some way. I'm now able to admit my mistakes and accept them as part of being human. I learn from my experience, as long as I stop doubting my worth or my Higher Power's love for me. I have a right to be here. I am easier to live with and much more loving and accepting of my family and others. I thank my Higher Power and CoDA for this knowledge.

In This Moment, I'm only responsible for me.

I'm not taking responsibility for anyone else's feelings. So simple, yet this has eluded me for most of my life. The phrase "you make me feel" rang in my ears for so long--now I realize that it was manipulation. I don't accept that any more.

The feelings of others are not in my control and no one else can control mine. I am free to feel and express my feelings. I enjoy this freedom.

Hey! (((MsG, BFG)))

HA. Tampon's? This show I worked on once actually had a segment on making crafts out of tampons. Needless to say the ratings for that episode weren't that great.

I want more fun too!

Glad these little ditties are helping you BFG. It helps me to post them too.

Love,

Hep

In This Moment, I listen for wisdom.

Once it was easy and natural for me to hear my inner voice--my thoughts, feelings, and desires. When I was a little child, I knew these things intuitively and expressed them spontaneously. Then something happened to push that voice down and drown it out.

It was there all along. I hear it clearly now. When I quiet the old tapes in my mind, my inner voice comes through. It rises at the invitation as if from a long sleep. I greet my inner voice with great joy and listen for wisdom.

Hello every one. I missed reading the posts, I went back to work one day off. Very thankful for Hep u really speak my true feelings. Ok u put labels on what i don't know what i am feeling.I really id with ur past...Anyway please keep sharing! What's up Alien,Bfg,Ms G,Hope u guys had a good week so far.
When i come to this thread i feel like i am taking a moment for myself.That i deserve..Ya know today with one day off. I now see how many people lives i enable because everyone it seems wants some of my time on my one day off.And i want to care for me. Talk a little with the friends and get off the phone. What i find is people take you hostage on the phone, email..etc.. just venting.
In the moment i am breathing,and confirming i am gonna continue to create my time to heal each day i can.Peace to you all.:^))

Thanks guys:)...I been feeling depressed...family dysfunction issues and just feeling alone and sad...

Then feeling bad cause I feel sorry for myself...vicous cycle I think...I have come to the conclusion again that I am better off without my n mom and sister...I been told by so many to get away from them...

I know what to do...learned that in theraphy..I feel alienated....when I should be thankful these people do not even care abouyt me....I know that.

I never had real love from my parents...they are not able to love or show respect....I now understand why I am so damaged...

Thanks for listening...caring..

Love bfg

Oh BFG, I'm sorry you are so sad. You're not damaged. All occurrences in your life, good and bad, are a part of who you are today. You could be cold cruel and calloused, but instead you choose to support people, like here.

That's not damaged.
