Humility

“……a clear recognition of what and who we really are, followed by a sincere attempt to become what we could be.”  pg 58  TWELVE STEPS & TWELVE TRADITIONS

Humility is not about being a shrinking violet or assuming an attitude of deference.  No, our sobriety literature says humility is an act of celebration followed by stepping out into the world and embracing the restored life our Higher Power has given us thus empowering us with a renewed involvement in the world.

Years ago when I moved from Pennsylvania to Florida, Homosassa was a sleepy fishing village with just one traffic light. Today, unfortunately, it is a bustling fishing village with three traffic lights and a new WalMart. Being a retired trucker, I've seen the continental United States coast to coast and north to south hundreds of times and don't care to venture out of Florida again. Driving was a great adventure and a great job. We don't get too excited about things around here. Tourists enjoy the river and the manatees. Snowbirds come down to share their northern wisdom and spend their money. I sit on the front porch and watch the world go by.......and write.
