I'm beginning to feel better today, thankfully. I was well enough by this evening that I was able to chair one of my favorite meetings, the meditation meeting. And tonight, we had a whole whopping nine people again!
I think I am finally getting the hang of chairing a meeting. I mean, I felt good going into it, and wasn't nervous at all getting through it. I still need practice on steering people in the direction of the topic of alcoholism and the solution, but when I was faced with it, i did try. I was nervous about that, I guess, and I wanted to turn to someone and say, "Hey, what do I do? Do I just cut this kid off and redirect him? Or just let him finish?" But shortly afterwards, he finished up.
More to my point, I speak in three weeks. I'm still nervous about that, but I keep practicing it in my mind (if I'm "doing it right"), so I'm hoping that will make it easier for me. I guess only time will tell.
Okay, I'm cutting this evening's blog really short. I was working on a much longer one, but I'm just so tired I couldn't finish it tonight, and I really wanted to post something. But I need to go to bed. I have to work in the morning, and tomorrow is New Year's Eve, so I may not get a post up tomorrow night (we'll see).
Meanwhile, have a great evening/day, and I hope everyone's New Years goes off without incident. If I can find the time to get a New Years blog up, I will.
