    I have been slacking here. I feel like I have nothing going on because I haven’t been doing anything- but truth is I did get a little resentment earlier in the week. I think I’m done with it- or stopped it from developing. By talking about it on this forum. I think we are all selfish to an extent, I really only consider it if I’m stepping on someone’s toes, developing resentments, etc. I am always slightly afraid, and should be afraid of things that are legitimately scary, and can cause harm, but I try not to live in fear. Progress~

    1. Was I resentful? No

    2. Selfish? probably

    3. Dishonest? to myself-yes- decided to buy a pack of cigarettes after a week of quitting

    4. Afraid? yes- scared to gain weight after quitting smoking- afraid I won’t stay on my food plan b/c I have been picking.

    5. Do I owe an apology? No

    6. Have I kept something to myself which should be discussed with another person at once? No

    7. Was I kind and loving toward all? Yes

    8. What could I have done better? Not bought the pack of cigarettes, Not smoked 2 of them, not obsessed all day about it.

    9.Was I thinking of myself most of the time? yes

    10. Or was I thinking of what I could do for others, what I could pack into the mainstream of life? not really. I did go to a meeting with a sponsee but I really wanted to stay home.

    11. After making our review we ask God’s forgiveness and inquire what corrective measures should be taken. I already soaked the cigarettes so I don’t have any left. I need to let the obsession go.

    In 4 yrs I don’t think I’ve had ONE day where I could say no to all of the first 4.

    Matter of fact, if I look closely enough, I don’t recall a day where I couldn’t find at least SOME influence of fear during the day.

    Maybe I’ll get there one of these days….. 🙂



    Edit….

    Yanno, I’m GLAD my days aren’t that “perfect” cuz when things are reeeeeally going my way and I think (or am deluded into believing) that I’m doing “that well,” I’ll tell ya what…… I sure as heck don’t need God very much anymore.

    a little fear can and probably will creep up now and then and I think it not too much to worry about when you have the tools we have.I prayed this little but powerful fear prayer several times this week,especially when I drove over that big Mississippi River bridge cause it scares me…lol
    God please remove this fear and direct my attention to what you would have it be ( like my driving…lol… do not look down)
