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.

And, if no one has told you yet today,

God loves you and so do we.

Inversely Proportional

.

Perhaps

the best thing

of all for me

is to remember

that my serenity is

inversely proportional

to my expectations.”

.

BB,   p. 452

.

Just when you expected that the meeting might begin on time,

God allowed a drunken late-comer to enter the room

and disrupt the start of the meeting.

Choice;  get upset and loose your serenity

or smile, maintain your peace of mind.

and thank God for the message,

but for the grace of God that could be me, again.

Expectations are plans

and if you want to make God laugh

tell Him your plans,

tell Him what you expect

to happen in this life.

Expectations are resentments waiting to be born.

Today, keep your serenity, accept life on God’s terms,

no expectations, no resentments.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.

Worth While

“Showing others who suffer

how we were given help

is the very thing which

makes life seem so

worth while to us now. “

.

BB p 124

.

Negative, negative, negative,

who cares, who gives a damn, just leave me alone,

I’m not hurting you or anyone else, I’m O.K.,

it is the rest of the world that has a problem.

As the alcoholic works the steps and

the promises begin to come true

the greatest joy arises

when they share the positive message,

there is a better way, a positive plan for living.

Be positive, you cannot keep your sobriety

unless you give it away.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.
