Complicated Ways

Dunedin Labor Day 038


“Simple truths

come in

complicated ways

to me when I

become ego driven.”


Daily Reflections, p. 155


The ego is still alive and well

even though I have quit drinking.

A.A. is not only about putting down the drink

it is also learning how to live without the drink.

The built in forgetter that my disease has bestowed

upon me still allows my ego to stand up and be counted

even when it should be standing in the corner

allowing my Higher Power to give me

the strength and courage to do the next right thing.

Today, lead from the heart, not from the ego.

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.
