Finally hit a meeting

So I’m sitting around my house, feeling sorry for myself, what has become my usual routine as of late, thinking about needing to do something different. I started looking up meetings, which I’ve done several times already, and saw one that started 45 minutes from then and only a 3 minute drive from my house. And I said to myself ‘get in the shower right now and you can make it there’. And I did.

I’m proud of myself for not putting it off any longer. There were no more excuses. It’s a good next step for me and this stuck feeling I’ve been having for some time now. I didnt share much but I felt good coming out of it. I’m planning to go to one tomorrow morning as well. Thanks everyone for the constant nudging to get me to try something new.

Well done.
Don’t worry about sharing untill it feels really right.
Just sit and listen.
Listen for similarities. It helps us realise that we are not the only ones.
