AA ‘Big Book’ – Quote
For most normal folks, drinking means conviviality, companionship and colorful imagination. It means release from care, boredom and worry. It is joyous intimacy with friends and a feeling that life is good. But not so with us in those last days of heavy drinking. – Pg. 151 – A Vision For You

Nothing comes easy for us right now. A lot of energy goes into just staying put and accepting this new way of life. We say that when the going gets tough, we hang tough! We know that it will pass, we make that promise to you. But it will be in God’s time, not yours.
Let me believe in myself, in this program, and in You, my Spiritual Source.
A Little Magic
Each day is a gift especially for me. I will look through innocent eyes at the world today and see the gifts that are meant just for me. Children think the sun rises for and because of them. They’re sure that the moon hangs in the sky because they waved their arm towards the heavens. That flowers bloom for their eyes alone to see. They are magical thinkers. They take delight in the antics of a squirrel, in a balloon sailing in a bright, blue sky. They see the world fresh, in color and alive each new day, each new moment. They are constantly being surprised. Today, I think I’ll borrow a little of their magic. Their magic and my maturity may just be a winning combination.
I believe anything is possible

Some days you will be shocked at how nasty and short tempered you are. You’ll think, ‘This can’t be me being so unreasonable.’ Yet it is. You may deny it’s really you by jostling the blame on another, ‘If they hadn’t….’ No, your bad behavior is your fault. You have no excuse. Now, can you love you anyway?
I learn to love me even when I don’t like me.

I am beginning to trust myself today. There is a place deep within me that tells me that I am okay and guides me along my path in recovery.
