I wanted to start a thread dedicated to just us and maybe we can spread this around :)

When we live with an alcoholic or an addict so much of our lives and esteem revolve around addiction.  I want us to take a moment and focus on ourselves and our own goals and complete this sentence:

I am my best when I...

I am at my best when I am involved in musical activities at church.  From 5:15 to 8:30 pm Wednesday nights and on Sunday mornings, everything else melts away and it's just me and my music.  Great therapy!

I am my best when I take time out to meditate by myself.  Whether I spend 20 to 30 minutes, the moments of silence can help me gather my senses and tackle the day with a different perspective.

Now I know I need new glasses.  I read, "I am at my best when I take time out to 'medicate' by myself."  That'll give you a different perspective all right!  ROFL!

Ok here is another one:

I am my best when I keep myself organized.  It helps when I organize my thoughts and actually write down some goals.  I feel a sense of gratification when I am able to accomplish those goals and actually "check" them off of my list.

I am my best when I remember something about my past that I like.

All too often all I can remember about my childhood ( and even adulthood ) is the negatives.
I'm a "Negative Nelly".

Just recently I met a wonderful woman on here who helped me to remember a time when my dad showed his love for me...

He really did love me...I remember!!!!!!

She knows who she is...THANK YOU!!!...and that makes 2 things I did for myself today!

That's a great story and memory to have.  Even negatives in childhood can be made into positives for our adulthood.  They might help us empathize with others in a way that we wouldn't have been able to if the experience wasn't there.  I try to just identify things like that as "experiences" not good or bad, just experiences.

Great post, I love it!

Although i know this is unhealthy recently im at my best alone in a hot bath cutting as this is the only way i feel human. (They are surface scratches and no deeper then a paper cut) but seeing myself bleed makes me feel normal.
