~ SELF RESPECT ~

:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:

In his private heart ...
no man much respects himself.

Mark Twain

:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:
I had no confidence or satisfaction in myself.
I covered my lack of self respect with absurd
and harmful behaviors. I shielded myself from
the respect and love of others using these
behaviors. I wanted to hide from the truth I
knew - that I was behaving badly and dishonestly.

We have stepped into a new realm of learning
to love and respect ourselves. We have come
to realize, by working the Steps, that it is in
the forgetting of ourselves, in doing service for
others, and in reliance on a Higher Power, that
we gain self respect. Our lives become useful
and our hearts are healed and filled with a
respect for who we have become.

ONE DAY AT A TIME ...
May I come to realize I am worthy of self
respect because I am doing the right things
for the right reasons ... and giving credit to
my Higher Power.

Default Ta DAAAAA!

Here I am, Chris. Got back from the beach yesterday. We had a good time, but I was ready to get home. DD was all out of sorts, and being really cranky. She missed her routine. And I was so ready to get away from all that food, ugh. Combine all the cookies, fattening foods, M&Ms, etc. with my family and all that baggage, and there was no way I couldn't overeat. Now I'm going to resume my exercise - got new DVDs in the mail while I was gone.

I'm glad to read that everyone is still getting along. Hi's and hugs to Ellis - I've been thinking of you often. Skippy - I'm right there with you. And welcome to Michelle!

I'll be back later - JoJo's Circus is over, so I've got to snag the TV!
