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

The Greatest Enemies

.

“The greatest enemies

of us alcoholics

are resentment,

jealousy, envy,

frustration

and fear.”

.

BB p 143

.

Why I drank.

Alcohol is a depressant, a negative attitude inducer.

Under the influence I thought I was haviing fun,

everything about me changed, unfortunately,

the world did not change and when I sobered up

all of the negative feelings returned, multiplied.

Today, hang with the winners, be positive,

do the next right thing and try to be the person

who would make their mother proud.

Recovery is avoiding the negatives.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

My God Does Not Make Any Junk

.

“We are

all perfect

in God’s eye”

.

Michael Lerian

While we are all thinking positive today,

remember that our primary purpose on this earth

is to stay sober and to help others.

Selfishness, self-centeredness, egotism and arrogance

are some of the alcoholic negative attitudes

that do not benefit you or others.

The mind is a powerful tool that when used

in the appropriate manner can accomplish great things.

Great people talk about ideas,
Average people talk about events,
Small people talk about other people.

Recovery is being the pleasant part of someone’s day.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

In A Quiet Moment

.

“In a quiet moment

we can get an

intuitive insight

that can change

our entire life

and the lives of

the people around us

in incredibly positive ways.”

.

– Elaine St.James

.

Seek the silence.

Today, slow the mind down

to equal the speed of your actions,

engage the brain before opening the mouth,

think positive and be positive,

quiet the noisy mind.

Today, know that the intuitive insight,

the gut feeling, is God giving us directions

to do the next right thing.

Recovery is to use the quiet moment to affect positive changes.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

Better Than A Dream

019

.

“You know

you’re in love

when you can’t

fall asleep

because reality

is finally better

than your dreams.”

.

~ Dr. Seuss

.

From the nightmare of active alcoholism to

a release from the obsession and compulsion,

life has become for those that have a program of  recovery

a life that is beyond our wildest dreams.

Reality becomes a state of mind that is wholly grasped

and enjoyed because all of its components are positive.

Unconditional love and faith become the bedrock

of a spiritual life that is better than any dream.

Today, don’t drink, don’t think and enjoy the dreams.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.

My Focus

.

“When I focus on what’s good today,

I have a good day

and when I focus on what’s bad,

I have a bad day.

If I focus on a problem,

the problem increases,

if I focus on the answer,

the answer increases.”

.

BB,  p. 451

.

Amazing that while under the influence of John Barleycorn

we did not know that we had choices.

We struggled trying to control and manipulate every

situation, every problem.

Let go and let God has become the mantra

of the recovering alcoholic.

Today, learn to focus on the good, the positive,

don’t fight it, go with the flow, and when given the chance

choose to focus on doing the next right thing.

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.
