Something I don't do well. I believe in going with the flow. Sometimes my God slips in a thought that directs me to other things. Other times, I know something needs to be done, but need and thought, followed by action isn't always there.

I was told to make a list of what I wanted to do in early recovery. That was because I was in an alcohol and drug fog (we don't detox for about a year), and now I am in a Fibro Fog. I was also told, not to beat myself up if I don't get everything done. Take a moment at what you did do, and you will often find that you did so much more. Your God just had different plans for you. For me, housework will never go away, but a chance to catch a sunny day and go out and connect with the Creator, is just too good to miss.

I am much better at the act/react thing and I have learned with Fibromyalgia, if I don't act on the thought when I get it, I am often the loser. I sometimes excuse the thoughts away and think them unimportant, not recognizing it is a message from my God. That Good Orderly Direction that I need to live in today and stay clean and sober. Sober meaning "Soundness of Mind." I do not have that when I find that I didn't make a phone call that should have been made, meat wasn't taken out for dinner, I forgot to check the time of an appointment, and the list goes on and on....

Again it takes that HOW, to live with peace and serenity.
