  1. Forgiveness.

    January 27, 2015 by Kayce L.

    Forgiveness of self and forgiveness of others are just two currents in the same river, both hindered or shut off completely by the dam of resentment. Once that dam is lifted, both currents can flow. The steps of AA allow us to see how resentment has built up and subsequently blocked off this flow in our lives. The steps provide a way in which our resentments may be lifted.

  2. Die to Live

    January 17, 2015 by Kayce L.

    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.

  3. Sometimes Quickly, Sometimes Slowly

    Our first true freedom is the freedom not to not to have to take a drink today. If we truly want it, we will work the 12 steps and the happiness of this freedom will come to us through the steps. Sometimes quickly-sometimes slowly. Other freedoms will follow and inventorying them is a new happiness. We have a new freedom to be the best we can be.

  4. The Journey

    The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. We are slowly learning how to trust our dreams and reach for them. One day at a time.
