  1. 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.

  2. Acceptance over Expectations

    June 4, 2018 by Kayce L.

    Acceptance over expectations is key in my recovery. It’s also the hardest.

    When it comes to trusting someone, what they say or do is very hard after ones lost the trust in someone. Taking some situations one day at a time. I do my best to Accept what is and not Expect anything. Loving someone you don’t trust is very hard. So I have to trust in myself and my higher power to keep me strong and guide me through these times of distrust. I put my acceptance above my expectations.

    Meetings and my sponsor help me in the weakest moments. Keep it simple everyone.
