...as my day ran smooth as silk with the family and the wife..we get back to the basics of my recovery..dealing with external triggers and a wild thought came to my head..i'm riding a 16 stop route..cvs stores..miami..alone ...92 beautifull degrees today and the usual issue crops up bright and early..boy..would love to quench this trigger with a natural ice..thats the heat trigger..the its summer trigger..one that i am confronted with that doesnt hit my stomach ..turn my bowels..just a nagging thought that i quickly dismiss and turn up the radio and wait for the wife to call so i can tell her about it and later tell this group about it..but today as i pulled into the drive thru store..in front of me..a car pullls to the window and orders the same natural ice that i was thinking about...and i thought..wow..was that trigger for me or did i create that opportunity on my own???..how many times do we exploit life for our own benefit???..I let him roll through..bought my ice tea and hurried up and got home..thankfull to check this blog and talk to my wife..no that external trigger did not have to be mine if i chose not to own it..thaat guy bought his beer and i bought my tea which saved me about $4.00 on beer..an 88.00 direct deposit i was sitting on and my relationship with my family..today i chose not to own that trigger..i can not be responsible at how life shows up..but i can be responsible for what i decide to do with what i run into..
