The old line says, "Suit up and show up." That action is so
important that I like to think of it as my motto. I can choose
each day to suit up and show up, or not. Showing up at meetings
starts me toward feeling a part of that meeting, for then
I can do what I say I'll do at meetings. I can talk with newcomers,
and I can share my experience; that's what credibility, honesty,
and courtesy really are. Suiting up and showing up are the
concrete actions I take in my ongoing return to normal living.
