AA ‘Big Book’ – Quote
On awakening let us think about the twenty-four hours ahead. We consider our plans for the day. Before we begin, we ask God to direct our thinking, especially asking that it be divorced from self-pity, dishonest or self-seeking motives. Under these conditions we can employ our mental faculties with assurance, for after all God gave us brains to use. Our thought-life will be placed on a much higher plane when our thinking is cleared of wrong motives. – Pg. 86 – Into Action
Hour To Hour – Book – Quote
Right now you can concentrate on getting through withdrawal one hour at a time. Don’t worry about tomorrow morning or next week, just this hour, just this day. You’ve already made it without anything for this long–now keep going forward!
Fill me with the knowledge that I can do anything for just this hour, just this day.
Today, I am willing to take a leap of faith into a process of forgiveness. My willingness to consider forgiveness as an option says that I want more out of life and relationships, that I am engaged and alive. I am willing to feel, to love and be loved. This implies that I value myself more than I value winning, prevailing or revenge. Forgiveness is the ultimate statement of self-love. If I love myself I don’t want to do things to hurt myself. Some things aren’t within my control but forgiveness is. I can’t always make sure I don’t get hurt but I can have much to say about how I react to getting hurt.

God is the answer, now what is the problem? Problem with the word ‘God?’ According to Random House Dictionary–Life, Truth, Love, Mind, Soul, Spirit, and Principle are all synonymous for ‘God.’ The above statement could just as easily be ‘Life, Truth, Love, Mind, Soul, Spirit, and Principle are the answers. Now what is the problem?’
Today, I let go of the labels that stand between me and my understanding of God.
