And Change



“Man needs,

for his happiness,

not only the enjoyment

of this or that,

but hope and enterprise

and change.”


~ Bertrand Russell



The most important word in recovery is change.

My sponsor told me that to achieve sobriety

I only had to change one thing about me

and that one thing was everything.

Most importantly, the fellowship has taught me that

change is the only constant and that change is inevitable.

What I did for my recovery yesterday may not work today

so I need to work my program, go to a meeting and have faith

that my Higher Power, speaking to me through others,

will guide me through another sane and sober day.

Today, go with the flow, know that this too will change,

accept life on God’s terms

and you will be the happier for it.

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.
