Character-building

 

lania flowers August 003.

“Seldom did we look

at character-building

as something desirable in itself…

We never thought of making

honesty, tolerance and true love

of man and God

the daily basis of living.

.

Twelve and Twelve, p. 72

.

As a drunk the thoughts were selfish and self-centered,

the only time we included others in our thoughts

was when we were tryin to control, manipulate ,

use or abuse that person.

It is only in sobriety, as the fog begins to lift,

do we begin to see that a few simple virtues,

practiced daily, can make life so much better.

Today; be honest, be kind, be tolerant, be loving

and instead of being the  miserable lowlife drunk,

become the loveable character

your Higher Power wants you to be.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.

And, if no one has told you yet today,

God loves you and so do we.

True Ambition

“True ambition is not

what we thought it was.

True ambition is the

deep desire to live

usefully and walk humbly

under the grace of God.”

.

.

Twelve and Twelve pp 124-25

.

As a drunk my true ambition

was to make sure that all of my wants and needs

were tken care of first, even if that meant using

and abusing family and friends.

For the recovering alcoholic, true ambition is

serenity, peace of mind and gratitude

for living a simple spiritual program that puts

other peoples needs on a par with our own.

Today, thank your Higher Power for being a miracle

and find pleasure in sharing that miracle.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.

“To be gravely affected,

one does not necessarily

have to drink a long time

nor take the quantities

some of us have.”

.

BB p 33

.

Every bottom is different,

it is not about what or how much we used,

it is about how we abused.

Mentally, physically and emotionally

the quality of life had diminished to the point

where something had to be done.

Today, don’t compare, identify…

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.
