Well, this has been a busy day. After work, I headed to two different appointments, one with my awesome counselor, and one with a friend and chairperson of one of the meditation meetings I attend. It's pretty much official, I'm now chairing the very meeting I love so much.
It's a small meeting, which is good for a guy like me who's so fearful of large crowds; though I can't attest as much to that as I used to be able to -- I'm getting more and more comfortable. Again, learning to live life on life's terms.
This anonymous meditation meeting is great. We open like any other meeting of its kind, read a little bit from a big, blue book ( wink emoticon ), and then listen to a meditation. The meditation is usually ten to twelve (plus) minutes long, and then there is time for discussing either 1) the reading, 2) the meditation, or 3) what ever someone needs to lay on the table.
Of course, being so small, the talking is usually pretty quick. smile emoticon But it will grow. This meeting is too important. I just hope that I'm not biting off more than I can chew.
Gratitude - Day 24 (Tuesday)
I'm thankful for the opportunity to find out I was, in fact, "wrong." That is to say, incorrect.
The "incident" that happened last Friday was not even an issue (so far as I can tell). From what I could see today, every ounce of that was in my head, and blown out of proportion (surprise surprise). Well, I actually knew that, I guess -- I just did what I do best; worry. More to my point, I'm just glad that *I* was making things worse, and that they weren't *actually* worse.
I know, kind of a weird thing to be grateful for, but I am.
