“They only thought
they had lost
their egoism and fear;
they only thought
they had humbled themselves.
But they had not learned
enough of humility,
fearlessness and honesty,
in the sense we find it necessary,
until they told someone else
all their life story.”
BB p 73
When you think you are humble, you are not.
To admit to another human being that you are powerless
over the disease alcoholism, that the sickness coerced you
into being an amoral person, that you were
capable of lying, cheating and stealing to protect your infirmity,
and you are willing to be honest about your disclosure,
this is the beginning of knowing true humility.
Today, be humble, be willing to say I don’t know
yes I am willing to follow your suggestions.
Recovery is one day at a time.
Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.
ME and the Boss
And, if no one has told you yet today,
God loves you and so do we.
