All About Timing

.

“Life is all about timing…

the unreachable becomes reachable,

the unavailable become available,

the unattainable . . . attainable.

Have the patience, wait it out

It’s all about timing.”

.

~ Stacey Charter

.

I want what I want and I want it now.

Instant gratification, control, selfish, self-centered,

the ego run amok, wants, not needs,

the person your Higher Power does not want you to be.

Today, be patient, if you do not get exactly

what you want don’t be surprised if what you do get

is better than you could have ever hoped for.

In God’s time.

Recovery is all about timing.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

Impossible

.

“Start by doing

what’s necessary;

then do what’s possible;

and suddenly you are

doing the impossible.”

.

– Saint Francis of Assisi

.

Fear is the impossible,

your preconceived ideas that are ego driven;

fear of failure, fear of prosperity, fear of the unknown.

Today, lose the fear, do something kind, smile,

be loving, be forgiving, be patient and tolerant,

be the person God wants you to be,

and before you know it, you will amaze yourself

by being able to do the impossible,

enjoying life without fear.

Recovery is doing the impossible.

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

The Best Opportunity

006

.

“Knowing that

we can be loved

exactly as we are

gives us all

the best opportunity

for growing into

the healthiest of people.”

.

~ Fred Rogers

.

My God does not make any junk,

we are all made perfectly capable of doing His will.

Love is the cornerstone of recovery.

Today, share the love, unconditionally

and let you ego drift into the background.

Today, know that your love will help the world

become a healthier place.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.

God loves you and so do we.

Better and Better

.

“I can do the same thing

with an A. A, meeting,

The more I focus my mind

on its defects … the worse

the meeting becomes.

But when I try to see what

I can add to the meeting,

rather than what I can get out of it …

when I focus my mind on what is good about it …

the meeting keeps getting better and better.”

.

BB   p 420

.

There is no such thing as a bad meeting,

it is just that some meetings are better than others.

A good meeting begins with a group of drunks

who leave their egos at the door.

Patience, tolerance,

learn to listen and listen to learn,

learn from the message

but do not kill the messenger.

Always remember, some are sicker than others.

Today, make your meeting the best meeting in town

by keeping the meeting on the topic,

a topic which should be, experience, strength, hope

and not picking up that first drink.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.

Ego, Fear and Pride

.

“The immediate admission of

wrong thoughts or actions is a

tough task for most human beings,

but for recovering alcoholics

like me it is difficult because

of my propensity toward

ego, fear and pride.”

.

Daily Reflections,  p. 295

.

One of the more dominate characteristics

of the alcoholic is ‘nothing in moderation.’

The egomaniac who suffers with an inferiority complex

is off of every wall, below the gutter,

higher than the pink cloud but rarely

anywhere close to reality.

Sobriety, a Higher Power

and the Twelve Step program can

restore the alcoholic to sane thinking.

Today, thank God for a second chance,

go to a meeting and remember to leave your

ego, fear and pride at the meeting room door.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.
