Righteous Indignation

.

“The positive value of

righteous indignation

is theoretical –

especially for alcoholics.”

As Bill Sees It   p 58

.

.

Learning the difference between

healthy positive and sick negative behaviors

is the pathway to serenity and peace of mind.

Anger can never be justified.

Today, don’t get mad, don’t even think about

getting even, just do the next right thing,

do the will of your loving Higher Power and

pray for those who upset you.

Recovery is not justifying bad behaviors.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power

Opportunities

.

“A pessimist is one

who makes difficulties

of his opportunities

and an optimist is one

who makes opportunities

of his difficulties.”

.

~ Harry Truman

.

.

Is everything going to Hell in a hand-basket ???,

change your attitude, get a bushel basket,

collect all of the pieces, discard the sick and ugly,

keep the happy and healthy and use the opportunity

to make this world a better place for all.

Today, face the fear

and seek the chance to do God’s will.

Recovery is making opportunities out of your difficulties.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

My Brain Is Backwards

sunset-080

.

My brain is

backwards.

Born that way,

the brain thinks

opposite of what

the medical (psychiatric)

community determines

to be healthy.

Instead of compassion, anger; instead of love, hatred;

instead of patience, anxiety; instead of acceptance, fear

and the list goes on and on.

The sick mind is negative, selfish, self-centered and

does not consider the consequences before it reacts.

The alcoholic sick mind also thinks the reverse;

that it is normal to drink poison,

to savor the effects of intoxication,

to believe that everyone does it,

to be the last to know that there may be a problem.

Self-will Run Riot

vinoy park 049

.

“So our troubles,

we think, are basically

of our own making.

They arise out of ourselves,

and the alcoholic is

an extreme example of

self-will run riot,

though he usually doesn’t think so.”

.

BB p 62

.

Thy will, not mine, be done.

A very difficult lesson for the fearful,

self-centered and egotistical drunk

who believes that he has everything under control.

I want what I want and I want it now,

regardless of who gets hurt, as long as it isn’t me.

And then we wonder why we can’t have

a healthy relationship, a happy family,

a happy employer, a happy Sheriff

or a happy self.

Today, be happy, don’t drink, think of others

and always try to do the next right thing.

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.
