Ready to Try Again

I’m ready to try again. I stayed sober last night and so far today (after not being sober since Thursday morning). I went to church this morning even though I wasn’t sure I was up for it. I’m glad I went. It was probably the best time at church in a while. My 1 year old made his way down the bench and visited the family I sit with. I actually even remember what the talks were about. I got to stay in Sunday School and Relief Society too. It has indeed been a while since I’ve been able to sit through all 3 hours. I think it also helped me solidify a desire to pick things back up. So my goals for today are staying sober and regrouping and coming up with a plan of attack. I’m trying to get away from being numb. I quit avoiding stuff and did some scripture study and praying while my son napped. Hopefully he’ll nap again and I’ll have some more time to really think about things without distractions. Otherwise it will have to wait until he sleeps tonight. I'm struggling a little bit with urges, but I'm going to get through it.

Some good news. I have 2 phone calls tomorrow with recruiters from the company I got laid off by. Hopefully one of the jobs will work out. I really would like to be back to work before I have to figure out what to do about insurance.

"By emulating the Master, who endured temptations but “gave no heed unto them,” we, too, can live in a world filled with temptations “such as [are] common to man”. Of course Jesus noticed the tremendous temptations that came to him, but He did not process and reprocess them. Instead, He rejected them promptly. If we entertain temptations, soon they begin entertaining us! Turning these unwanted lodgers away at the doorstep of the mind is one way of giving “no heed.” Besides, these would-be lodgers are actually barbarians who, if admitted, can be evicted only with great trauma."
