In the following paragraphs, I will be discussing my daily reflections for July 13.
On this day, I recognized that it was a difficult day and there were many triggers around me that made it hard to stay sober.
It’s easy to get lost in the negativity when you’re feeling vulnerable like this but I knew what steps needed to be taken so that tomorrow could be better. The first step is recognizing those triggers and then taking care of them either by not doing anything or by finding an alternate way to cope with them.
There are always going to be days where things don’t go as planned but it’s important not to give up hope because we can do something about our situation!
Daily Reflections July 13
As long as we placed self-reliance first, a genuine reliance upon a Higher Power was out of the question. That basic ingredient of all humility, a desire to seek and do God’s will, was missing.TWELVE STEPS AND TWELVE TRADITIONS, p. 72
I was trying to find humility for a long time. I didn’t realize that it would be just as good if not better, than what I wanted when the opposite of humble is arrogant and overbearing, which are qualities you will never see from me because like any other ordinary human being in this world; we all have our flaws but these little quirks make us who we are today so why should anyone care about them?
I found out after awhile that there isn’t anything called “humble”–it’s always either grace or mercy. But don’t worry! God won’t stop loving on your new self-esteem no matter how high you raise yourself up with arrogance and pride until one day he decides enough is enough…
I need to crack open my Bible, pray for knowledge of God’s will today and see how my experience with hope and pain can help other people.
If I try this out, then there is no more searching that I have to do because humility has found me!
The main point of the blog post is that humility can be found when you are living a life in service to others.
With this mindset, it’s easy to find ways every day to help people and show them love. I hope you enjoyed reading my experience with humility as much as I did writing about it!
