A Willingness To Give

.
“The unity, the effectiveness,

and even the survival of A.A.

will always depend upon

our
continued willingness to

give
up some of our personal

ambitions and desires

for the common safety and welfare.”

.

~  As Bill Sees It    p  220

As a drunk it was always about me,

in recovery it becomes all about we.

Compromise, balance, and agreement, words that are

foreign to the active alcoholic are words to those in recovery

that provide serenity and peace of mind.

To be restored to sane thinking is learning how

to use these words honestly in all of our affairs.

Recovery is to give up some of our personal ambitions and desires.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

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.

And, if no one has told you yet today,

God loves you and so do we.
