Daily Reflections January 23

. . . we aren’t a glum lot. If newcomers could see no joy or fun in our existence, they wouldn’t want it. We absolutely insist on enjoying life. We try not to indulge in cynicism over the state of the nations, nor do we carry the world’s troubles on our shoulders.ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS, p. 132

Drinking has been a part of my life for so long that I lost sight on what was important.

Stripped from the guilt and remorse, it’s time to take responsibility in this world again; but if you’re not having any fun then maybe its best we stop?

If answering is difficult or painful than there may have been some regrets slipping back into old habits- don’t let them happen!

I’ve been sober for a while now, and it’s really changed my life. In the past year alone, I was able to get engaged because of this sobriety.

Now that my house is in order, I find that different parts of my life are more manageable. Stripped from the guilt and remorse that cloaked my drinking years, I am free to assume my proper role in the universe—but this condition requires maintenance.

Am I having fun yet? If not…maybe it’s time to reevaluate what you’re doing with your recovery program so you can have some fun!
