The Currencies

.

“The cosmos doesn’t

measure sweat and hours

for reward.

The cosmos deals in

the currencies of

joy and satisfaction.”

.

~ Danielle LaPorte

.

.

Sometimes, no sweat and a snap can be the most

joyous gift you can give to the Spirit of the Universe.

However, life is often a lot of blood, sweat and tears,

failures and mis-steps time after time,

do not be discouraged,

the joy and satisfaction of a job well done is cause

for the same celebration.

There is great gratification received from

doing the will of your loving Higher Power.

Recovery work is rewarded with joy and satisfaction.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

The Great Weaver

.

.

“In Silence

there is eloquence.

Stop weaving and see

how the pattern improves.”

.

~ Rumi

.

.

We become so busy living our lives

that often the pattern becomes obscured,

disappears in the lint and dust of the too busy loom.

Today, seek the silence,meditate,

step back and observe the pattern of your life,

have gratitude for the good

and be ready to change if you must.

Today, understand that with the guidance of your Higher Power,

the Great Weaver, you can create a pattern

that is happy, joyous and free.

Recovery is to see the pattern of your life improve.

Sobriety is a blessing form 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.

Don’t Mess It Up

014

.

“I am amazed by

how many individuals

mess up every new day

with yesterday.”

.

~ Gary Chapman

.

Good, bad or indifferent:

yesterday was awesome, can I have a repeat ? ,

yesterday was aweful, what could I have done differently ? ,

yesterday was lost, can I go back and find it ??? ,

no, no and definitely not …

Today, start with a attitude of gratitude

and go forward from that moment to this moment

seeking to do the will of your loving Higher Power.

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.

Enough

012

.

“If you concentrate

on what you don’t have,

you will never,

ever have enough.”

.

~ Oprah Winfrey

.

Gratitude, thank your Higher Power for your blessings,

demonstrate that you are willing to take care of what

has been given you, and acknowledge that the people,

places and things that you enjoy are more than sufficient.

Today, keep it simple,

know that green grass is green grass no matter

which side of the fence you are on.

Today, concentrate on the bird in hand.

Recovery is being thankful for what you have.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.

Like Gossip

.

“Character defects

like gossip

sneak into my life

when I am not making

a constant effort

to work the Twelve Steps

of recovery.”

.

Daily Reflections, p.297

.

The character defect of the drunk

was to talk about other people ( true or false)

so that I would not have to look at myself.

If you spot it, you’ve got it.

Too often what we despise in others

is what we despise in ourselves.

Today, don’t lose your serenity,

when you sense that something is not right,

don’t blame anyone but yourself.

Today, find the Step that will put you

back on a good spiritual foundation and

keep your own side of the street clean.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.

Do Something

pine is clouds 092

.

“But in A.A.

we slowly learned that

something had to be done

about our

vengeful resentments,

self-pity and

unwarranted pride.”

.

Twelve and Twelve, p. 47

.

Feel miserable or do something about it,

change.

Some learn more quickly than others

but eventually those who find

peace of mind and serenity

learn to let go and let God,

to change what they can

and to be wise enough to know

what they cannot.

When it is no longer all about me

and I become willing to look at both sides of a story

life becomes a promise

that fills me with gratitude.

Today, get out of yourself, go to a meeting

and share your positive experience, strength and hope

with those who understand how hard it is to change.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.
