Lessons And Teachings

There is much in the way of literature in the Program and it is strongly suggested that newcomers use this plethora of literature available.  This continued “working” of the Program is one way of establishing a firm foundation in recovery.  Remaining open to new ideas and new ways of living is an essential part of becoming a sober alcoholic.  Much of my disease, alcoholism, has been about my poor behavior.  I treated myself and others poorly, I abused and neglected family and friends.  There are many lessons, and insights and when I can become open and willing to learn new ways of behaving and new ways of thinking, my recovery will progress.  I have had times of frustration and confusion but they are usually followed by insights and understanding.  Progress, not perfection, is my goal.  One Day at a time, One Step at a time and One Lesson at a time, that’s my goal, and with the help of my Higher Power and my friends in the Program, I shall maintain and sustain recovery.(I’m on a road trip with my grandbaby.

  1. Thank the Lord for this day and for all that is in it.
    My times are in His hand.
    My soul rests with Him, my Anamchara.

    Well my Lord (God of my understanding) I’m certain I have been promised a more abundant life and I’m relatively sure this applies to my deepest self – my spiritual self.
    But you know what?
    I’ve never had any eggs in the cloud and as a matter of fact I never heard of such a thing until I came across this on my always exciting World Wide Web and as soon as I can I’m going to try them.
    Looks like they will be delicious.

    Cloud Eggs

    Being excited and can’t wait to find out are parts of a more abundant life.

  2. While I hate cliches, they saved my life! “It works if you work it” I’ve also heard “It’s worth it; just live” tagged to the end of that one. Thanks for the great reminder.
