Character-building

 

lania flowers August 003.

“Seldom did we look

at character-building

as something desirable in itself…

We never thought of making

honesty, tolerance and true love

of man and God

the daily basis of living.

.

Twelve and Twelve, p. 72

.

As a drunk the thoughts were selfish and self-centered,

the only time we included others in our thoughts

was when we were tryin to control, manipulate ,

use or abuse that person.

It is only in sobriety, as the fog begins to lift,

do we begin to see that a few simple virtues,

practiced daily, can make life so much better.

Today; be honest, be kind, be tolerant, be loving

and instead of being the  miserable lowlife drunk,

become the loveable character

your Higher Power wants you to be.

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.
