As you can see from my last post, I jumped forward a few days on my Beautiful Me Journal. Sometimes the daily tasks or activities don’t require me to actually write in my journal and some of the things are not anything I really struggle doing with respect to gaining a better self-perspective on my beauty. Sometimes those are things I’m already doing and sometimes those are simply things that I do for myself without discussing them (Honestly, this is kind of a big break for me, because I’m so anal retentive, it’s disgustingly obsessive. I’ll discuss this problem of all or nothing attitude I have sometime). But today’s certainly rang as something I needed to mention.
The author asks answering the following question in the journal, so here it is:
What do I need right now more than anything else?
The first simple thought that came to my head: Figure out how to stop drinking.
The author goes on to suggest asking yourself this question every day for a week and if you notice by day three that it’s still the same response, then the question changes to a statement telling us to figure out how to give it to ourselves right now.
I’ve literally asked to have my shift at my other job covered tonight so I can go to an AA meeting.
I’ll have to update later.
