I'm Getting My Groove On!

I met with my sponsor yesterday and I'm officially now working on the 6th & 7th steps. For those who are reading this say "WTH is she talking about?" Let me tell y'all first off I'm in recovery in two 12-Step programs and one deals with my past drinking while the other deals with being affected by other people's drinking. Since the programs are anonymous I'll leave the rest to your imaginations. So anyway the steps 6 & 7 are: Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character and Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings. It was suggested by my sponsor (which is like a spiritual coach if you will) that I read a book on that topic called Drop the Rock. So I can apply the Snoop Dogg principle here and "drop it like it's hot." Tee hee.

Along with my step work my sponsor who I'll call T asked me what I'd like to focus on for self improvement this month. After some thought I realized I've been missing dancing. For me dancing is key to my spiritual, physical & mental health. And due to a very busy holiday season & weird schedules I have not had a chance to shake it in a while. So tomorrow night I'm going to the Egyptian Lover show at the Tonic Lounge on Sandy. He's an amazing old skool DJ and his spinning always sets my butt a-shakin'. And since my sponsors intuition saw dancing with a group at a community center I did a search and found a class at a place called Dance Momentum in SE Portland that I think will be fun. Let's hope my ankle will hold up through all this movement. By the way if you don't know who Egyptian Lover is check out this video of "Keep it Hot."

More on Friday!
