Fresh Starts in Arden Fair

I remember back when I was working at Sears over at Arden Fair Mall. That is a nice mall near Cal Expo where they have the State Fair every year. I have heard that they have the California sign that used to be at DCA in Anaheim.

I went to visit Disneyland, Downtown Disney and DCA several years ago while I was living at TLCS. But I am a little off topic, so please forgive me if I offended you.

I still live in Sacramento, and I got some stuff on YouTube from several different places. Right now I have some money in my account up front, so maybe someday in the future I could develop a Business like Fresh Baked Disney.

I should do some research on that in the coming months of November and December 2016. Right now it seems impossible, but maybe by 2017. I don’t have to do that, but it doesn’t hurt to explore.

I think that there are people on the Westmont Campus who might be able to help me put an end to my Gambling, as i try to focus on GA and the things that come when I am free from Gambling.

Who knows, maybe with with Principle Three (Step Three) down solid, I might be able to find an appropriate sponsor, temporary sponsor or accountability partner who can assist me in my recovery.

You have to start somewhere. I am looking at getting the gift cards from Amazon next week so that I can begin my recovery. Right now I am hoping for a Gamblers Anonymous Yellow Combo Booklet. I checked the website yesterday in the store and it is $1.00 for the book. The website is at http://www.gamblersanonymous.org

Today is Wednesday October 26, 2017

There is a Music At Noon concert almost every Wednesday from Noon until One. Then the Sacramento Kings open on the road tonight against Phoenix. We don’t get it on our cable, so I will probably watch the Baseball game on FOX.

Have a great day everyone, and tomorrow is Day 12 in my Daily Meditations from the Celebrate Recovery Study Bible that I downloaded to my Kindle app on my iPad. There is Tecarta Bible app as well which I still use, but I think I should stop at two apps.

I am looking forward to tomorrow night when the Kings play their first home game at the Golden 1 Center.

Survivor Wednesday

Tonight is another episode of Survivor on CBS. I plan to watch it tonight on TV. That is great news for my recovery. I didn’t understand the first three steps when I picked up the Love Hunger Workbook while working at Borland..

I know now that the first Step in any recovery group is saying your name, and what your in recovery for. For example, when I realized that I was a problem gambler, I began to attend GA meetings. I would say something like my name is Brian and I am a problem Gambler. There are Step Studies, and other types of support. The problem with the Love Hunger Program was the fact that I was dealing with more than just Food.

Now the challenge for me is how to step out of denial. Maybe sometime in the next ninety days I will find the answer. All I know now is that I am at Gramercy Court. I have another appointment in two weeks down on Timberlake Way with my Eye Doctor. Today I finished Day four in my Daily Devotional in my CR Bible that I got this past Sunday.

I plan to go to Day 5 on Thursday. I will probably review today’s reading one more time today. I am not planning on getting to my third step until December.

Today is today.

After Lunch in the Lobby

I went down to my eye appointment in south Sacramento on Timberlake Way. Emma gave me a ride down and back with Alpha One. I made it back to Gramercy in one piece. I called Alpha One to let them know that I appreciated the service.

I came back to Gramercy Court and ate Lunch in my room. Now I am in the Lobby.

I. am thinking about the Celebrate Recovery Bible that I received yesterday and whether I can get past Step One / Principle One. Today is Monday October 17, 2016.

I know that I am not Gambling right now, but the question that I have is how to get to my Fourth Step.

Hopefully there is someone that I can ask. I am planning on doing Step Two / Principle Two in two weeks.

I might move up the date.

After Lunch

I just had Lunch in the Dining Room. It was Chili, Vegetables and Cornbread. I liked the meal, and now I am using my Apple iPad in the lobby.

I watched some YouTube videos earlier. It was a pretty good set of videos.

There are three more weeks until November.

I want to take care of some things this afternoon. I might get to my room early tonight.

That is all for right now.
