Hello and welcome back to Second Chance to Live my friend. I am happy to see that you decided to stop by to visit with me. Thank you. Approximately a week ago I wrote the 2 Part article series, Mindfulness and Serenity. I have been busy working on several other projects and did not have the time to work on a video presentation of this series, until now. In today’s article, I am going to present the 1st part of the article in video format. I am doing so to make the information available to individuals who learn more effectively through watching and listening.
Below is a brief excerpt from the article:
“Last week I attended a 12 Step support group meeting. After the meeting a friend made a casual statement, that at the time, caught me off guard. He said, “So what step are you on?” Initially I was taken aback and said the 11th step.“Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.” To be honest with you, at the time I had not consciously been thinking about the steps or what step I was on or taking.
For a more information concerning the 12 steps please visit Part 3 of an article that I recently wrote by clicking on this link: Living with a Traumatic Brain Injury — Am I Being Manipulated? Solutions and Strategies Part 3. Although I did not give the steps much thought at the time, I have been thinking about the 12 Steps since last Wednesday evening’s meeting. This morning I worked the 12 steps on what I thought was instigating my being out of sorts. My restlessness, irritability and discontent. After processing what I thought was bothering me, I went about my day. This evening I continued to be in pain. With this awareness — of being in pain — I decided to read from a book that had helped me in the past. The book, Inner Bonding by Dr. Margaret Paul
I also decided that I needed to get to a meeting, where I knew that I would be able to process what I was experiencing and bringing about my pain.”
