I got back home this evening from a trip to Georgia. It was a nice get-away for the weekend. I attended several seminars so much of Saturday was spent in those. However, I did get to reconnect with some old friends.
I didn't get to take as many photos as I had hoped but will post some more when I am less tired. The little backwater towns are interesting, although most are passed through in about a couple of minutes or less. Stately old homes with nice large lawns still line the streets of most of these small towns. At one time, the trains would stop, and I can imagine a much more bustling place then.
I can see in retrospect, how much power I gave to others in my life. It was all about how I was reacting to what they were doing. I find it interesting how my entries now are about what I am doing and the things that I enjoy. I still write about feelings for others. But I am less and less concerned about the power that others have over me. I find that to be a direct result of how I have shifted my focus in recovery. I am indeed fortunate to be keeping the focus on me and what I am doing, rather than on what others are doing to me. What a change!
