Remember . . .
Time can be our friend or our enemy. Choose friendship.
Time is a double-edged sword. It can seem as if our pain never ends. But even Torchbearers get better over time. Sometimes, we have to hold on for dear life when we are in pain. We must force ourselves to hang in there until the pain passes. But as they say in A.A. "Don't leave before the miracle happens."

Time is marching on, and I am starting to heal from my rejection from LAA. Each day, I am less angry and more reconciled. Soon, I will be ready to see that this is God's will for me, and that he is about to give me a new purpose in life. Yesterday, my application to a company was accepted. I applied two years ago and had to go through more hoops than I could have ever imagined. This company, Global Giving, is going to help me raise money for my non-profit, New Beginnings Today, which feeds orphans in Kenya who have AIDS. I am beyond excited because helping people, in a non-codependent way, it what gives my life meaning. My heart will always belong to LAA, but acceptance is the answer to all my problems today. The reason it has taken me so long to get to this place of acceptance is because I was rejected. For me, that hurts worse than death. It takes me back to my painful childhood. But I am not a child anymore. I want to be a healthy adult, so I am going to act like one. Namaste.
