Spilled Coffee

Thank you for the opportunity to share:

This morning, I spilled my coffee. Up until now, I may have listened to the committee in my mind; false messages looking for control. The FEAR seeping in, much like the coffee soaking into the rug. False evidence appearing real.

Step 11 reminds me that through prayer and meditation I can and do have conscious contact with the God of my understanding. My meditation practice allows me to more readily BE in this moment, where I accept myself as I am, an imperfect human BEING. Nothing to DO. In taking a pause to write in this moment, in recognizing and deepening my awareness of my process, I practice self-care, self-compassion, acceptance, and gratitude for CoDA, the 12 Steps and this life.
