(This morning I will be undergoing surgery to take out a few bone spurs on my foot and explore some other issues. Prayers accepted. I’ll update when I wake up, thanks all)
Continued to take personal inventory. . . .
— TWELVE STEPS AND TWELVE TRADITIONS, p. 88
The spiritual axiom referred to in the Tenth Step—”every time we are disturbed, no matter what the cause, there is something wrong with us”—also tells me that there are no exceptions to it. No matter how unreasonable others may seem, I am responsible for not reacting negatively. Regardless of what is happening around me I will always have the prerogative, and the responsibility, of choosing what happens within me. I am the creator of my own reality.
When I take my daily inventory, I know that I must stop judging others. If I judge others, I am probably judging myself. Whoever is upsetting me most is my best teacher. I have much to learn from him or her, and in my heart, I should thank that person.
-For me, SMB, I no longer Justify. I admit. THAT was the biggest change in behavior besides stopping the drinking. As I write this and go over my inventory, I appreciate each and every one of you. May peace fill your hearts and joy and happiness live in your spirit.
