Diary of a Sunflower: 18 January, year 4

The diary entries are extracts from my spiritual journey, going back about twenty years.

No, I tell you this because I was told to tell it – by what you might call ‘ a higher authority’ – and truth is, the thought of how to tell it has taxed me for so many years.

Miss Garnet’s Angel, Sally Vickers

I am powerless – my life has become unmanageable.

Came to believe that a power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity. 

Step 1: and Step 2 Alcoholics Anonymous

The problem – and a signpost to find the answer. I feel that my life is beyond my control at the moment. What I would like is impossible – or feels it, even though I tell myself it should be reasonable and not difficult to achieve. But then, maybe to achieve it, I would have to live my life by formula and not take account of how I feel at any particular moment – there would be no room for spontaneity. I want to excel at my work, I would like the house to be reasonably clean and tidy all the time, I want to get fit and maintain it, and I would like to do things that keep me in touch with me – I need to do those things – tai chi, meditate, reflect on and evaluate my life more often – daily in fact, via this diary. I feel tired and weary, and I lack energy. I would like this to change. Start today…little steps
