Feeling Crappy Isn’t Fun

“… we no longer need to behave in ways that conflict with our best interests and values… This program has given us the tools to become the people we’d like to be.” – In God’s Care

I’m a life lover today, but it hasn’t always been like that. In the past, usually when I most needed it, I did not go to a meeting or journal or open up my spiritual backpack or pray or meditate or exercise. I did not get enough sleep, ate poorly, inappropriately expressed anger, and remained in fear for extended periods of time. Why? Because I hadn’t practiced my life loving rituals enough to have formed a habit. And so, I paid the price of unhappiness. These days I’ve learned to be consistent and do the daily deal in order to become a man that I can be proud of. This repetition came from my determination to no longer live in pain – feeling crappy isn’t fun. Today I rarely behave in ways that complicate my life. And when I do, I make living amends quickly. By performing esteemable acts of kindness, ILML!
