via Daily Prompt: Elevate
When I think of the word elevate I can break it down by my life’s era’s.

In 2010, this woman’s life was elevated to a state of chaos, so badly I needed a program!

It’s amazing how life’s perspective changes over the years as we grow emotionally.
I hope I always remain teachable.
Quality time is so important to me.
I love spending quality time with my friends and family. When the time together isn’t forced and everyone really wants to be there, I feel loved.
I feel hurt when I schedule time with someone and they blow me. That tells me that my time is not important to them. It tells me that I am not important to them. Whatever they blew me off for is more important, whether its work or other people. This is with the exception of emergencies.
I really feel what you put out into the world, you get back in some form. Saturday, I had plans with someone I love and they blew me off. That night I was asked by two people if I would sponsor them. I spent the evening with a new sponsee talking about resentments and personal growth. We talked about owning our part in our story so we can learn and grow from it. Then we went for ice cream and laughed at her 7yr old son’s silly jokes.
The next day I was invited to lunch with a grammar school friend, which I accepted gratefully. Another friend invited me to a Jazz fest which I couldn’t attend because of work and sponsee commitments.
The universe if keeping me busy with people who want to spend time with me. Surrounding me with love the way I need to receive it, in quality time.
Thank you universal friends! Thank you HP for giving me the gift of friendship, sobriety and love!
