So many of us have lived our lives placing unmerited value on the opinions of others while discrediting our personal truth and reality. Breaking the shackles of people-pleasing requires honest self-appraisal, a healthy dose of self-esteem, and an enormous commitment to self-realization.
….as near as the destination may be, it’s still the journey that matters….
Are you having a good day today? You came home at a decent hour last night or, in this covid-19 environment, you stayed at home with family and enjoyed a movie and quality time with loved ones. You remember whom you were with, what you did, where your vehicle is this morning, don’t you?
Wasn’t always like that, was it? The hangover, the nausea, the headache, the self-loathing, the empty wallet on the bedside table, the questioning – “why did I do that again?”
The BIG BOOK shares wisdom about the insanity of our alcoholism – doing the same thing again and again expecting different results. Addiction does not change. It is cunning, baffling and powerful. It wants to see us dead, but will settle for an institution and insanity.
If you are sober today, give yourself and your Higher Power a hand
May our lives be deeply blessed today. It’s not just another day.
“The Lord bless you and keep you, the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.” NUMBERS 6:24-26
