Step 10

June 27, 2018 by Kayce L.

This step is exactly what I needed to go back to in my recovery. In life's chaos we can get vulnerable to fear, anger, jealous, and just emotions all together.

I have found myself hung up on resentments and fear. My higher power had me listening to my meeting last night, big book study. Step 10 brought me back where I needed to remember to spot check inventory of myself.

Doing a spot-check inventory is when you have an emotional disturbance. This is a quick, spur-of-the-moment inventory concerned with day-to-day problems. It helps to silence volatile emotions, build character and promote a positive way of life.

Avoid making quick-tempered decisions; train yourself to take a step back and breathe.

Survey your situation honestly.

Admit when you’re wrong.

Forgive others when they’re wrong.

Focus on progress, not perfection.

When we take a moment and do this in hard times of our lives. We can get back on track and love ourselves and the ones we love.

    My favorite review step. It amazes me to reflect back on the person I was and the person I am now. AA has been like a second set of good parents that raised me to be more honest, humble and forgiving. Good one Kayce!!
