I had a very disturbing conversation with my oldest daughter last night about marriage and children. She is struggling with many conflicting emotions and I fear she will make a decision based on "the moment" that will cause her pain down the road. Sometimes it is so difficult to mother an adult. I wish that "down the road" was a place we could go visit occasionally in order to get a better perspective of the spot in the road we are on presently.
When I get a new sponsee I always tell them to hi-light, underline or circle the last line of the first paragraph on page 17 of the BB. It reads "They have solved the drink problem." So we have a solution as our end goal and we know the issue has been solved for us, we just need to follow the same path the "solvers" came up with. A lot of people know I am dieting right now and many of them have already solved their weight problems through the path of exercise or calorie counting or portion control or even gastric bypass. It's the daily maintenance of the weight loss that seems to stump a lot of folks, me included. What I love about our beautiful program is that I fully understand the daily maintenance, I understand the foundation the "solvers" came up with. I "get" the magnitude of willingness every day. The results are so startling that it's easy to get up every day with firm resolve.
Let's walk gently today, making our steps light. There are so many people stomping around and I don't see any point in adding to all the vibration.
