AA ‘Big Book’ – Quote
We alcoholics are sensitive people. It takes some of us a long time to outgrow that serious handicap. – Pg. 125 – The Family Afterwards
Hour To Hour – Book – Quote
Sometimes reality slaps us right in the face. We may be out of money, facing jail, losing a loved one, or hating our circumstances. However, right this hour we have only one true reality: SOBRIETY. Without sobriety all the above only gets worse!
I make contact with Divine Intelligence so that I am not preoccupied with things outside my control. I want to remember why I am here.
Learning from Life
There are no ‘buts’ today. I am what I am, others are what they are, life is what it is. I will not parenthesize my growth with a ‘but,’ or hold back my forward-moving spirit with second-guesses. For today, I am living with things as they are. As I give this gift to myself I feel relieved. I am exactly where I am meant to be, learning what I need to learn. All I need do is move through situations with willingness to learn and openness to feel. When feelings are brought up, I can accept them as what is happening within me-no need to resist and analyze them. I can witness, allow, observe, share and process rather than shut down and hide. I can tolerate the intensity of my own inner world. I trust that my life is unfolding in such a way that what I need to learn will be before me. I am willing to learn.
I see the ‘table prepared.’

If something is right, it can be done. If it is wrong, it can be done without.
I can do that!

If you think handling everything is too much, try letting go.
Time for Joy – Book – Quote
Today I will treat myself to quiet time. Today I will be gentle with myself as I let myself do nothing but be who I am. Today I will value what I think.
Alkiespeak – Book – Quote
I got sober and I didn’t know if I was Arthur or Martha sexually.
Then a guy got up and said that when he came in he didn’t know whether he liked men, women, or sheep. So I sort of thought I was doing all right – because sheep weren’t on the agenda. – John.
