Like a loud alarm clock, the First Step brings us to semi-consciousness—although at this point, we may not be sure whether we want to climb out of bed or maybe sleep for just five more minutes. The gentle hand shaking our shoulders as we apply the Second and Third Steps causes us to stand up, stretch, and yawn. We need to wipe the sleep from our eyes to write the Fourth Step and share our Fifth. But as we work the Sixth, Seventh, Eighth, and Ninth Steps, we begin noticing a spring in our step and the start of a smile on our lips. Our spirits sing in the shower as we take the Tenth and Eleventh Steps. And then we practice the Twelfth, leaving the house in search of others to awaken.

We have been trying to get a new attitude, a new relationship with our Creator, and to discover the obstacles in our path.

Prayer is a pathway that allows us to connect with a Higher Power and reach an inner peace. Acknowledging any fearful thoughts and shifting them thoughts into prayer helps us spiritually and emotionally. The serenity prayer is a very powerful 12 step prayer.
