A Good Egg

.

.

“A true friend is

someone who thinks

that you are a good egg

even though he knows that

you are slightly cracked.”

.

~ Bernard Meltzer

.

.

Everyone has a little chink in their armor,

a friend is someone who will not expose

or take advantage of those weaknesses.

Today, be a friend, carry a bandage with you

and apply to a friend when necessary

to make sure their cracks do not grow any larger.

Recovery is caring for another

even if they are slightly cracked.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

The Selfish Ego

.

“We will only fall

when we follow

the voice of our ego;

for it is impossible

to stumble when following

the whisper of the Spirit,

because it never lets go.”

.

~ Kelly Young

.

The selfish Ego is self esteem on steroids,

the loud voice of pride that proceeds the fall.

Today, pursue the balance, seek the silence,

listen to the whispers of the Spirit as you

follow the path that leads you to doing

the will of your loving Higher Power,

doing the next right thing.

Recovery is following the whisper of the Spirit.

Ask

.

.

“He who asks

is a fool

for five minutes,

but he

who does not ask

remains a fool forever.”

.

– Chinese Proverb

.

The real fool is the know-it-all

who has never been there, has not done that

and has an ego that is too large to admit,

“I do not know.”

Today, remember that the only stupid question

is the one not ask.

Today, relish the opportunity to learn, to grow,

to make this world a better place

because you learned how.

Recovery is asking all of the right questions.

Sobriety is ablessing from a Higher Power

Dream Big, Have Faith

.

“You block your dream

when you allow your fear

to grow bigger than

your faith.”

.

~ Mary Manin Morrissey

.

.

Fear is often a vivid imagination

that has no base in reality,

no foundation in fact.

Today, don’t know if you are coming or going,

pray to your Higher Power for guidance,

ask a friend for a suggestion, have faith that your fear

will not overcome your God given intuition.

Today, use all of the tools that your imagination

can create to lose the fear and have a life

that is happy, joyous and free.

Recovery is always having enough faith to dream.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

Do Something

.

“Life is inherently risky.   

There is only one big risk

you should avoid

at all costs,   

and that is the risk of

doing nothing.”

.

.

~ Denis Waitley

.
Lead, follow or just get out of the way.

Today, start with an attitude of gratitude

and thank your Higher Power for giving you

one more day, one day at a time.

Today, get out of yourself,

do a random act of senseless kindness

without expectation of a personal reward

and try to make this world a better place for all.

Recovery is taking the risk to do something.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

No One Is Inferior

.

“The surrender of life

is nothing              

to sinking down into

acknowledgment

of inferiority.”

.

– John C. Calhoun

.

God made nothing that is inferior.

Today, you do not have to act superior;

just be kind, be loving, be patient and tolerant,

be forgiving and compassionate and be the person

your Higher Power wants you to be.

The Great Creator has placed every one of us

in this world to do His will, to make this planet

a better place for all.

Recovery is a healthy dose of self-esteem.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

A Small Word

002

.

“Impossible is just

a small word that is

thrown around by small men

who find it easier to live

in a world they’ve been given,

than to explore the power

they have to change it.”

.

~ Muhammad Ali

.

Don’t like the small world that you live in,

let go and let God show you that within your

heart and soul is the power to change.

It is not likely that you will achieve

the top of the mountain with your first try

but have faith, know that the journey to the top

begins with one small exploratory step.

Recovery is to explore your power to change.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.
