When Love Is Defined By A Push

Published on 8/1/2017
For additional information  Click Here

I love reading & my reading choices appear to me in the form of many diverse subjects... I read what interests me at the time which makes me like a free lance reader... This provides me with a freedom to learn new things that might mean taking on a new project, or maybe modifying one I have already started... Of course then I'm always setting & resetting my priorities... My process allows me to be as creative as I want to be... It's my path to freedom of expression for my ideas to take on a form of their own... Some might look on this as a scattered way of thinking, but it was through this very process I happened across this little video in which nature explains what many people fail to understand & put into practice...

I am so very grateful to God on a daily basis for this gift He has given to me... It was because of His gift of being able to write & express myself on paper that My Push came to me in the form of my struggle through the battle to free myself from the destructive forces of alcoholism... It came to decision time when I reached the bottom when I knew I must make a choice as to how I wanted to live the rest of my life...  

My favorite hymn in Sunday School...

I had to ask myself when I was happiest in my life... That was when I was growing up as a child... I was pretty much left to make my own choices on a daily basis of things I wanted to do... The decisions were much easier back then, swimming, biking or roller skating?  Music has always been my passion...  Please bear in mind, the forties & fifties were a much simpler time so I was able to appreciate what that kind of freedom truly meant for me... Was I drinking then? Absolutely not, so I determined that must be the key... I made up my mind that I truly needed to quit if I wanted to reach my full potential of happiness...

At 77 that has turned into a lifelong journey that has afforded me some opportunities to accomplish things that would never have even been considered had I continued on the self destructive path I was on... The line was drawn for me... I thank God for what I now realize had become my Push... I was led to read some authors that became my mentors & whose advice I still follow to this day... I'm grateful to AA for being there for me at a time in my life when it was all important for me to follow up on my decision... The lessons learned there I still use in my life today & will continue to influence me for the rest of my life over 26 years later... 

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you God for loving me so much... You are My Push...

Signing off 'til next time this is,
