In Black And White

.

“We placed them before us

in black and white.

We admitted our

wrongs honestly

and were willing to set

these matters straight.”

.

BB p 67

.

.

As suggested, put it in writing,

burn it when you are done or

save it for providing a good laugh

further down your road of recovery.

Just do it, knowing that there is no standard

by which you will be graded,

every  soul has its own journey.

Today, any Step, any inspiration,

put it in writing and let the whole world know

how you did it.

Recovery is being honest and willing.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

Dream Big, Have Faith

.

“You block your dream

when you allow your fear

to grow bigger than

your faith.”

.

~ Mary Manin Morrissey

.

.

Fear is often a vivid imagination

that has no base in reality,

no foundation in fact.

Today, don’t know if you are coming or going,

pray to your Higher Power for guidance,

ask a friend for a suggestion, have faith that your fear

will not overcome your God given intuition.

Today, use all of the tools that your imagination

can create to lose the fear and have a life

that is happy, joyous and free.

Recovery is always having enough faith to dream.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

Step Ten

November Lanai 009

.

.

“10.  Continued to take

personal inventory

and when we were wrong

promptly admitted it.”

.

BB p 59

.

.

Putting down the drink is not the end of recovering,

it is the beginning of a journey that will last the rest of our lives.

As a part of that daily journey the program suggests that

whenever you have a feeling that is uncomfortable,

a feeling that may lead you to a drink,

you should stop right where you are,

make a thorough assessment of the situation

and when wrong, admit it, and when not wrong,

don’t gloat, just move on and learn from the lesson.

Today, don’t drink, don’t think, go to a meeting

and if you make a mistake, apologize.

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.

Health Problems

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

.

God has abundantly

supplied this world

with fine doctors,

psychologists, and

practitioners of

various kinds.

Do not hesitate

to take your

health problems

to such persons. “

BB p 133

 “A.A. is not allied with any sect, denomination,

politics, organization or institution; does not wish

to engage in any controversy; neither endorses

nor opposes any causes.” AA Preamble

However, there are more than a few suggestions

throughout the Big Book that indicate that once

the drink is put down, other mental and physical problems

may come to light.

AA is not a cure all and this suggestion from the BB

just reinforces the idea that one is not sober

unless the body, mind and soul are all healthy.

Today, do not hesitate to take care of the whole you.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.
