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.
