44/366 A simple day... worth living.

This will be a short post because there is one more pressing to post-Manda's Musings Issue 2: 3 little angels (All dressed in Black)--Give that a thought then why don't you!?!

I had a simple day.

My day started with a doctor's appointment. As most of you know I am not super supportive of the medical field (I think it has its place but is not as necessary as they would like to have us believe). The main reason I went was to renew my prescriptions (One for my virus and the other for birth control) but my preference for natural options had me asking questions about the option of the Paraguard (For those of you who don't know it is an IUD wrapped with copper wiring which is supposed to last 10 YEARS (edited), will result in full fertility after removal, can not result in death, is 100% natural and 99.4% effective against pregnancy.) I am well aware of the complications that can arise and several other things - I have done a LOT of studying and research. I know what I want. But when I brought it up to the doctors it was like I was asking for the opportunity to kill their kittens... it was tragic. I was constantly being pushed NOT to go with the Paragaurd and I am not sure why that is... Any thoughts?

After that I had the opportunity to meet up with a girlfriend of mine Katrina. She and I know each other through work. She was an intern last summer at... well we'll call it Hell... and she was a light in my life and my co-workers and I were able to make her internship less than terrible, and she was able to make the last few months bearable for us as well. It is her birthday so I felt especially special that she felt comfortable spending part (a long part) of it with me. We talked about a lot of things, especially spirituality and growth over the past year. It was really comforting and lead me to the next thing...

Today I completed step 4 in OA "Make a fearless and searching moral inventory of ourselves." The only reason I was able to do this was because of all the encouragement, help and support I have gotten from all of my loved ones. My conversation with Katrina made me feel stronger and closer to my HP... it was really a magical moment.

I am so grateful for today.

Then I had my OA meeting which was so personal and peaceful. There were only 3 of us there and we were able to really connect on a deeper level and offer guidance for each other than is usually possible with a big crowd following the by-the-letter rules. (You all know me too well... I am not a rule follower ;) )

I love you all so much. Thank you for being a part of this journey!
