to like me
– it’s mine.”
– Byron Katie
About how many heads do you see nodding
in agreement at an AA meeting when the speaker declares,
“I was a people pleaser, a chameleon, I was anything you wanted me to be”
probably every one except for the guy sleeping in the back row.
AA has taught me that I do not have to like everyone
or please everyone even though I must have unconditional love
for all of the children of God.
Most importantly, AA has shown me that love begins with self,
a healthy self love that says my God does not make any junk.
Today, do your job right, love everything and everyone
starting with yourself.
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.
