“The Word”

“At times we find ourselves caught up in old ideas. The original basics are as important to recovery from day 1 (24 hours) to 14,612 days (40 years) as they were in the beginning. If, while practicing these principles, we allow ourselves to feel superior or inferior, we isolate ourselves and are headed for trouble for then we feel ‘apart from’. Separation from the steps of recovery and service to others slows our own spiritual growth. Complacency keeps us from good-will, love, compassion and grace. If we are unwilling to listen to others, we deny our need for improvement. We learn to become flexible and to admit when others are right and we are wrong. As new things are revealed, we become renewed. We need to stay open-minded and willing to do that 1 extra thing; go to that 1 extra meeting; stay on the phone that 1 extra minute; and help that 1 newcomer to stay clean (if they want it). This is vital to our recovery as well as others we help along the way. It’s a give-give, win-win situation and all it takes is effort, honesty, courage, authenticity and most of all ACCEPTANCE!”. XO
