IF THE ONLY PRAYER YOU SAID IN YOUR LIFE WAS "THANK YOU", THAT WOULD SUFFICE. ~Meister Eckhart

The key to success is not to will anything to happen, but to simply be willing. As your Higher Self oversees your circumstances, you will be drawn to the new experiences that are part of your future. Forcing solutions may call forth experiences before you are ready. ~Pocket Sponsor
Today I am grateful...
  • that my life works today
  • that the program of AA is always there, to keep me grounded
  • that pain can be lessened by trust and faith
  • that I do not have to gossip today to feel better about myself
  • that life is less disruptive with a clean house
  • for easing the battle with defects

Some people think that hanging in there shows great strength when the truth is 'letting go' is the real test of character. ~Unknown

There’s a big difference between being self-centered and having self love. We’re self-centered when we think we don’t need people. We might think, “I’m more important than others.” Being self-centered ends up hurting us. It makes us lonely. It keeps us from our Higher Power. Addiction is about being self-centered. Recovery and the Twelve Steps are about self-love. If we love ourselves, we say, “We’re all equal and in need of each other.” Self-love includes having good relationships. ~Keep It Simple

Dear Scott,

Good Morning !

You are so right about the clean house. that sense of "clutter" is not constantly running in the background of my day.

I look forward to seeing you soon.

Love you.
