Sadly I am now unable to this charity ride, for which I am gutted. And so sorry to The Living Room and especially Mark in the office who has been so supportive and encouraged me all the way.

It has become clear to me that in respect of doing things of whatever nature, my “Eyes have become bigger than my belly” So by adding this ride to the usual list of things I do in my life, it soon became clear that my life had become unmanageable. So from what I’ve learnt in recovery, is to find the courage to ask why? Sounds easy doesn’t it? Well no sometimes it’s not. Firstly to say my life is unmanageable is actually hard. But if when I was in the madness of my illness of Alcoholism I had not found the courage to ask for help, I might not be hear today.  And for that I thank my Higher Power which for me is God.

I consider myself very fortunate today, I am in place where I am well enough and able to help others. I am there for my family, three wonderful children of whom I can be a constant in their life. And an amazing partner who loves me, is so brave and has supported me.

So will finish with a prayer, that once I never really understood, but today I have a better understanding of.

God grant me the Serenity
To accept the things, I cannot change
The courage to change the things I can
And the wisdom to know the difference.
Love, hope and prayers to you all.
