“True ambition is not
what we thought it was.
True ambition is the
deep desire to live
usefully and walk humbly
under the grace of God.”
Twelve and Twelve pp 124-25
As a drunk my true ambition
was to make sure that all of my wants and needs
were tken care of first, even if that meant using
and abusing family and friends.
For the recovering alcoholic, true ambition is
serenity, peace of mind and gratitude
for living a simple spiritual program that puts
other peoples needs on a par with our own.
Today, thank your Higher Power for being a miracle
and find pleasure in sharing that miracle.
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.
