My health is good and I ran, walked and exercised my way to 1,193.17 miles thus far in 2015.
I sailed my boat over 90 days and viewed the time spent on her as sacred, a chance to reset my mind and meditate.
I bought a horse who is the most wonderful creature I can imagine. I became a re-rider after years of not riding. It was a learning experience in many ways.
I made new friends, kept my expectations low and was glad that I did. Many of my new friends awakened in me activism that has become part of my life again after too many years.
I grieved the loss of several close friends and much loved pets. I keep their memory close.
I read reviling diatribes and insults that made me wonder about humanity. I saw so much tragedy in the news that my heart ached.
I continued on my path to recovery in Al-Anon through service, meetings and writing here. Although the latter has become less frequent, I know that writing down my thoughts and reading yours has helped me.
I am not sure what 2016 will bring. But I am going to do my part to stay the course, make things a little better for others and be mindful of love and compassion as I go about each day.
Wishing you peace in 2016.
