Face It And Learn

.

“When pain comes,

we are expected to

learn from it willingly,

and help others to learn.

When happiness comes,

we accept it as a gift,

and thank God for it.”

.

~ As Bill Sees It, p. 306

.

Physical pain; take two aspirin and call me in the morning.

Emotional pain; pray, meditate, talk to y0ur sponsor

and when you discover the root cause of the pain,

give it to your Higher Power.

Happiness is easy, smile, God knows that your smile

is a sign of gratitude and thankfulness

for having received the gift of sobriety.

Recovery is to learn from the pain and accept happiness as a gift.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

Choose To Be Kind

004

.

Attachment

to being right

creates suffering.

When you

have a choice

to be right,

or to be kind,

choose kind

and watch your suffering disappear.”

.

~ Dr. Wayne Dyer

.

Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional.

Pain is a two way street, often what pains you

will also pain those closest to you.

Suffering is a one way dead end street and it is all yours.

Today, know that what is right at this point in time

may not be right tomorrow

but a kindness will be right forever.

Recovery is choosing to be kind.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.

God loves you and so do we.

First The Pain

.

” … pain was the touchstone

of all spiritual progress …

for we know that

the pains of drinking

had to come before sobriety,

and emotional turmoil

before serenity.”

.

Twelve and Twelve,   pp. 93 & 94

.

Why do so many show up in the rooms of A.A. ,

most will tell you that they were sick and tired

of being sick and tired.

When the pain of the guilt and shame is sufficient,

those that truly seek to understand their lot

will be blessed if they can find the fellowship

and following their suggestions,

find a way that may not be easier and softer

but is definitely more rewarding.

What keeps them sober,

not wanting to return to the pain,

to be able to continue the spiritual path

that allows them to enjoy a life

filled with serenity and peace of mind.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.
