Falling off the Beam
Z is living in the next town up from us, working and living with his fiance that he met in rehab. They are attempting to get an apartment of their own and we have worked on our own relationship quite a bit. I have finally realized that things are not going to be what I expect or want them to be, but as they are. Z knows my boundaries and I am more accepting of him and his choices. We have spent time together at the holidays and it was really nice. I believe he is still using but that it his stuff, his road to travel and I have plenty on my own road.
Off work for a couple of weeks from yet another surgery and am healing nicely. I am struggling however with trying to set myself up some type of recovery schedule. My sleep schedule is completely off and has been for years. My meditation skills need much work. I find that I am placing quite a bit of expectation on myself and my recovery even though I know it is practice, not perfection. So here I sit with some time to work on myself and finding myself sitting and watching TV all day when I am not asleep. Feeling a little toxic, I know it seems as though I am stuck in the land of self pity today. Hmmm, something to think about. I believe I will go off and meditate on that and make myself a nice long gratitude list, then call my sponsor.
Happy New Year everyone!
