The Steps

April 10, 2018 by Kayce L.

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.

    As a suggested Program of Recovery, I have found only these set of Principles have served as the Good Orderly Direction to make possible a life of that I could of only dreamed of possible over the last 3,549 days of Practice - when I wake up tomorrow, I will take comfort in the fact that it will always be today.

    Thank you for this awesome application!
