All By Ourselves

October Roses 054

“How persistently

we claim the right

to decide all by ourselves

just what we shall think

and just how we shall act.”

.

Twelve and Twelve,  p. 37

.

The fear of being found out by others

that I knew very little

was motivation for my selfish and self-centered

super ego to go through life making mistake after mistake.

The first word of the First Step is WE

and when I discovered that collectively

we could help each other avoid mistakes,

we could show each other how to live a life

that was happy, joyous and free,

I put my fears aside, began to ask for help

and started making fewer mistakes.

Today, don’t make a mistake, ask for help.

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.
