Daily Recovery Quotes – May 4

May 4

AA ‘Big Book’ – Quote

Resentment is the ‘number one’ offender. It destroys more alcohlolics than anything else. From it stem all forms of spiritual disease, for we have been not only mentally and physically ill, we have been spiritually sick. – Pg. 64 – How It Works

Hour To Hour – Book – Quote

You will be receiving many gifts from people in the programs: gifts of help, time, energy, possibly money, talents, and knowledge. You will never be able to pay them all back. You are not obligated to pay them back. You are obligated to be of service to others and give to them what is being so freely given to you today.

I appreciate the generosity of others and my only obligation comes in the future, to offer what gifts I can to someone else in recovery.

Inner Cleansing

I am in a process of healing. I am taking the time to allow my body to become clean and whole and as I do that, my mind seems to heal, too. Thoughts arise, thoughts I have blocked out during normal waking hours. They scare me, sometimes. Where are they coming from. Me? But as I allow them to come forward a curious thing happens. They become less threatening. They are, after all, just thoughts. They only really have power when I fear them and push them away. If I welcome them into the sun lit rooms of my mind, they sort of spread out and relax. They are just fears. Anxieties. Parts of me I don’t want to know about. But today I understand that I cannot really keep secrets from me. Today I let these thoughts have room to breathe and as they do, a curious thing happens. They dissipate.

I awaken to my inner life

Pocket Sponsor – Book – Quote

‘Suit up, Show up, Sit up, Shut up’ is what we used to tell newcomers. We used to say this for darn good reason. Drunk drunks and newly clean addicts shouldn’t be running at the mouth about recovery when they don’t understand recovery. Unfortunately ‘Politically Correct’ (or rather, ‘Therapeutically Correct’) often hijacks our meetings. Do not be afraid to take our meetings back.

In order to continue to help the newcomer, I Suit up, Show up, Sit up, and Speak up!

Today I choose to think positive and loving thoughts. I know that if I do this I will feel loving and positive and create a positive and loving world for those around me.

I looked up ‘Willing’ in the dictionary. It said: ‘Cheerfully ready’ – Cindy F.
