As I sit here with my morning coffee, I’m reflecting on the past day. It started off pretty rough but it had its ups and downs like any other day. But overall, I think it was a good one.
There were some really great moments that helped me keep my head up high even when things got tough. And there are always those few seconds each night where you stop what you’re doing to take in all of life’s beauty before going to sleep for the night.
The world is so amazing and beautiful and we need to remember that every single day.
Keep your chin up!

I need my higher power remove this bad habit of mine by reminding me every day that life in Alcoholics Anonymous requires honesty with myself first before being able live an honest life elsewhere outside the meetings or at home during them when sober too!
I am grateful for my Higher Power, who has removed this character defect from me. I can’t let go of the need to deceive myself about myself when it comes to alcoholics anonymous and sobriety in general because that would be setting myself up for failure or disappointment.
To avoid these outcomes in life, I will try harder not to practice deception by deceiving myself about reality.
My close relationship with a Higher Power is helping me change, but only if I ask them every day for help removing the habit of self-deception from my life so that they can lead me into more honest relationships with other people and ultimately themselves.
