A Survival Device

Recovery has brought me to a place of freedom, freedom to be exactly who I am – Bonnie, alcoholic; Bonnie, a woman in recovery, and Bonnie: mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, Friend etc., and Bonnie, a woman living a life of faith, trust, fellowship and service. Denial is no longer something I use, I strive to live in the real world. A world of honesty, integrity, and healing. It’s not always an easy thing to do – but A.A. has prepared me for the tough questions others may have or ask about me, and my past life. Today, I dare to be honest with others. How are you honest within the program of AA?

    “By admitting where I was at fault, I was given the ability to forgive … With forgiveness came a freedom that I had not anticipated. The amends had required nothing but courage, and a faith that my Higher Power would carry me where I had been too afraid to walk alone.”
    Sterling, AK, September 1993

  2. Top of the morning family,
    Lies lies lies…just not a song from, The Thompson Twins.
    Denial denial denial…
    Today, I can take time and think about how I’m living this life.
    – Do I suffer from denial about denial?
    – Who am I honest with?
    -Where and I building stepping stones
    – Where am I building stumbling blocks.
    I know this solution works because I have experienced it.
    Today, I’m free as much as I desire.
    My misery, His mercy.

    Its a good day to have a golden Friday…..
