I Like Me



“It’s not

your job

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.
