“A lot happens in one day, both negative and positive. If we do not take the time to appreciate both, perhaps we will miss something that will help us grow.”
I am grateful for all the negative I have went through because it has brought me to such amazing positive place in my life and recovery.

As we begin “doing the right thing for the right reason,” we can detect a change in ourselves. Where once we were ruled by self-will, now we are guided by our goodwill for others. The chronic self-centeredness of addiction is losing its hold on us. We are learning to “practice these principles in all our affairs”; we are living in our recovery, not in our disease.

Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity
"Do we now believe, or are we even willing to believe, that there is a Power greater than our self?" As soon as we can say that we do believe, or are willing to believe, we emphatically assure our selves that we are on our way.

Without faith there is no courage. Recovery gives us faith and then we develop the courage to change.
One day at a time.

“We can also use the steps to improve our attitudes.”
Many times in recovery if we are not showing an attitude of gratitude, we are not working the steps of recovery.
Keep it simple.

We want to look our past in the face, see it for what it really was, and release it so we can live today.
There is no other way to live in recovery. Our Paradox tells us #4. "We Die to Live" the old life of drinking/using and fuzzy thinking must die! In order for us to live.
I personally love this reading. To me it is so true. Everything about my drinking/using days had to die in order for me to live. My way of thinking, my surroundings, friends, my habits, even most of my family. In a biblical sense start a new. Live in the now.

Many of us have trouble identifying our character defects. If this is the case for us, we can talk with our sponsor or our Fellowship friends. We clearly and honestly describe our behavior to them and ask for their help in identifying our defects. As time passes, we’ll become progressively better able to identify our own character defects. Working on them with the help of others.

We needed to ask ourselves but one short question. -"Do I now believe, or am I even willing to believe, that there is a Power greater than myself?" As soon as a man can say that he does believe, or is willing to believe, we emphatically assure him that he is on his way.

Praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.
