A Fellowship

.

.

“We are people who

normally would not mix.

But there exists among us

a fellowship, a friendliness,

and an understanding which is

indescribably wonderful.”

.

BB p.17

.

.

One of the many first lessons we learn in AA

is to identify, do not compare.

It is the common feelings shared by alcoholics

that bond them together.

The feelings of being sick and tired of being sick and tired,

the loneliness, the depression

and the desperate feeling of  pending doom

are what most sober alcoholics remember.

Today, don’t concern yourself with how much

or how often we drank, just delight in the though

that in recovery we no longer have to feel that way.

Recovery is to enjoy the fellowship.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

Aligned

.

I align myself with people

who support my growth.

If you meet someone whose soul

is not aligned with yours,

send them love

and move along.”

.

~ Dr. Wayne Dyer

.

.

God made this a we world

but that does not mean everyone can be a we.

We must make the choice to do the next right thing,

find a friend whose soul sings the same song ,

one who can supply the harmony to our voice.

Today, listen to the song of others

before you make them a we.

Recovery is to choose your friends wisely.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

Laughter

.

.

.

the most wasted

of all days is

one without laughter.”

.

~ e. e. cummings

.

.

.

laughter is good when we laugh

with others, not at them.

laughter is good when we laugh

at ourselves.

laughter is good when we laugh

body, mind and soul.

today, look for the happiness,

know that it can be found in kindness and love

and in a friend with whom you can share a laugh.

Recovery is a good laugh.

Sobriety is a blessing 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.

We Have The Key

005

.

“So often time

it happens,

we all live

our life in chains,

and we never even know

we have the key.”

.

~ The Eagles

.

Fear, anger, hate, pride, jealousy;

some of the many links in the chain

that prevents us from living a life

that is happy, joyous and free.

Love, kindness, patience, tolerance, forgiveness,

we all possess the master keys that can open any heart.

Today, ask a friend, ask your Higher Power

to show you how to use the many keys that

the Great Creator has given unto us all.

Recovery is finding the key to serenity and peace of mind.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.

Without Comparing

024

.

.

“Enjoy your own life

without comparing it

with that of another.”

.

.

~ Marquis de Condorcet

.

.

People who value feelings, love, kindness,

and contentment, have everything in life,

while many who possess the things,

the toys with all of the bells and whistles,

may be miserable souls who do not know

happy, joyous and free, real enjoyment.

Today, be a friend, do not compare the outsides,

identify with what is in the friends heart.

Today, seek you own happiness first,

then share the love.

Recovery is your own, no comparing.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.

A Brand New End

002

.

“No one can

go back and make

a brand new start,

my friend,

but anyone can

start from here

and make a brand new end.”

.

– Dan Zadra

.

AA in a nutshell.

Clear the wreckage of the past and start

making a brand new ending to a life that is very valuable.

Thank your loving Higher Power that She/He has given

each of us just one day at a time and we can start that day

over again as many times as we deem necessary.

When we begin each new day and each new start sober,

trying to do only the next right thing, the world

we be a better place for all.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.
