Drop The Rock

Today, I have “dropped my rock.” I found through the process of the 4th Step that I have good qualities, that I’m not all bad. Today, I focus on the good within me. Today, I believe that with the help of my Higher Power I can be a positive influence in the lives of others. I am no longer weighted down with behaviors that make me feel bad about myself. I have faith and I know the God of my understanding will see me through the hard times, and that He blesses me with the power to overcome alcoholism and behaviors that harm myself and others. I focus my attention on what I can do, not on what I can’t do. I have learned to forgive myself and others, I have learned that my fears are always greater in my mind than in reality. I have learned that dishonesty hurts me more than it does anyone else. I have learned that self-pity gets me absolutely no where. Action is the key word when it comes to changing my behaviors.

One thought on “Drop The Rock

  1. Everyone has two personalities, a good and a bad. We are all dual personalities to some extent. When we were drinking, the bad personality was in control. We did things when we were drunk that we would never do when we were sober. When we sober up, we are different people. Then we wonder how we could have done the things we did. But we drink again, and again our bad side comes out. So we are back and forth, always in conflict with our other selves, always in a stew. This division of our selves is not good; we must somehow become unified. We do this by giving ourselves wholeheartedly to A.A. and to sobriety. Have I become unified?

    Meditation for the Day

    “Well done, thou good and faithful servant. Enter into the joy of Thy Lord.” These words are for many ordinary people, whom the world may pass by, unrecognizing. Not to the world-famed, the proud, the wealthy, are these words spoken, but to the quiet followers who serve God unobtrusively yet faithfully, who bear their crosses bravely and put a smiling face to the world. “Enter into the joy of Thy Lord.” Pass into that fuller spiritual life, which is a life of joy and peace.

    Prayer for the Day

    I pray that I may not desire the world’s applause. I pray that I may not seek rewards for doing what I believe is right.

    ” There is a bit of good in the worst of us
    and a bit of bad and the best of us
    so it hardly behooves any of us
    to look down on the rest of us”.
