As alcoholics, we often rely on daily reflections to keep us on track. Today, December 13, is no different.
Today, we must stay focused on our recovery and not let ourselves be pulled down by temptation or negativity.
Our sobriety is more important than anything else, and we must remember that always. We can do this!
Daily Reflections December 13
Our very lives, as ex-problem drinkers, depend upon our constant thought of others and how we may help meet their needs. ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS, p. 20
The A.A program has always come naturally to me, but it’s not easy work when you’re constantly thinking about your own feelings and needs instead of those around you!
It takes a lot for my mind set outside the Program boundaries – like yesterday where I offered some encouragement on his shoulder as he walked down Main Street—to change into this mode; one in which we are all connected by our love (or lack thereof)for others people-, so that finally achieving peace can become reality…
I have found that when I stop worrying about myself and reach out to help others, my life improves dramatically.
When you are feeling down or emotionally drained it can be hard to think of what other people need from us.
It is only when we step outside ourselves that the world begins to feel more whole again.
If this has been something that’s been tough for you in your own recovery process then remember these words of wisdom “We are not here on earth simply to make a living.”
What would happen if everyone took their responsibility seriously?
