My Soundtrack for Christmas Day
For Christmas Day, I went to two different AA meetings. The first was at 9 and was just a regular open discussion meeting. At this one I learned that there are days where all you can do is not drink...as though the two words were a one-word gerund. "Some days all I can do is "not-drinking." That's how I felt on Christmas Eve, and except for feeling like shit, it went pretty well.
The second meeting was a speaker meeting, and the high point of it was being with a new friend and my Crush. That's when the above song started creeping into the on-going flow that is my brain's eternal podcast. Mostly the words "paradise" and "reaching for heaven."
Then dinner at a friends. Followed by hanging with another friend and once again my Crush, where we spent the time hand-in-hand, his head on my shoulder, and everything lovely.
How was y'alls' Christmas? And please tell me you aren't going back out to shop today. Hugs.
