I'm at a the part of my life when at times I think, will this be the last time I'll be doing this, will this be my last move, will this be the last trip I take and so on and so forth… Through the years I have discovered that as you get older, although I don't project into the future, acceptance to what is going to happen in the future becomes part of the thinking process.. Thank God I have learned to let go of the past and keep moving forward. I am always learning by my past mistakes.. Sometimes it takes years to realize that once that bridge is crossed, there is no going back. That brings me to why I am saying these things..
The other day I received an anonymous, "I don't like you e-mail" from someone who can't forget the past, someone who won't let it go.. So to whom it may concern. You know who you are. Let me start by saying I got sober 40 years ago. Yes, you may think it is a Miracle and it is but not drinking doesn't mean instant brains and because of my drinking my mental growth was stunted and it has taken years for me grow mentally and spiritually as in the case of people who suffered because of the use and abuse of alcohol. There have been times during the past 40 years that I have said and done things that were not appropriate and yes, I did hurt a few people as time went on. I am so sorry for that however I did not like that you mentioned my AA friends. You know absolutely nothing about them or how it works. Just remember this, I could have never stayed sober for 40 years without a Higher-power and the support from my friends in AA. They have taught me to be the person I am today. They are my life and the best thing that has ever happened to me.. Again, I want to apologize if I have hurt you in any way… Thank you for understanding but remember "For some of us, it takes a little Longer"..
