September 13th. A day like any other. Well, not really. Today is different. Today, I am sober.
It’s been a long journey and there have been many bumps in the road, but I have finally reached my destination. Sobriety is a new beginning for me and I am excited to see what the future holds.
today is my first day of a brand new life and I intend to make the most of it! Thanks for joining me on this journey.
Daily Reflections September 13
Good judgment, a careful sense of timing, courage and prudence – these are the qualities we shall need when we take Step Nine.TWELVE STEPS AND TWELVE TRADITIONS, p. 83
Making amends can be viewed two ways: first, that of repairing damage by making direct mends when I have caused a problem; second is modifying my behavior so as to cause no further harm.
The best approach? Do both!
If you’ve done anything wrong in the past and are trying hard not break those bonds again then an indirect mend or modify should do just fine because it means taking responsibility for your actions while also ensuring honesty with others- which will help us all get along better too!.
We are all in the midst of our own personal journey, but it is important to be able to make amends if we have caused any damage.
The only way to do this successfully and honestly is by both repairing the damage done as well as modifying future behavior for good.
Make sure you always take action when harm has been done so that you can mend your ways!
