I always used to hear folks talk about hitting bottom
what did that mean? ... I could never relate
every morning was bottom
I was never arrested. Never lost a job.
Never was massively morbidly obese.
I was lucky
so why did I change my life?
What was that moment when I decided?
I have no friggin clue... maybe that's why it took me so long
.. bottom. 12&12 Step One, p.24
The answer is that few people will sincerely try to practice the A.A. program
unless they have hit bottom
I wake up and sometimes forget
I have to remind myself that I have to be Grateful for today
maybe this was a bottom for me this time
me? I need weight management? I need a class on Healthy Balance
I am 5'6
this is not terrible
but my sugar and cholesterol were high when I tested
can you say massive sugar binge?
so it's time to get things back on track
be Grateful for today
go to this class
accept the help they are offering
swallow my pride
I may never get to this weight
but I danged sure won't if I don't take this journey one day at a time
and enjoy today
embrace and accept myself
for my flaws and imperfections
and my potential
to be there to help and maybe one day inspire another
