Lovingkindness - A Book Appreciation
There are so many books out there for us to read that awaken our conscious contact with God. This book, though, has become my favorite because it speaks to me not as a woman in recovery but as a person who wants to find peace in life.
More Step One?
We only have 12 Steps to guide us in recovery and we read and discuss them over and over. No matter how often, we can still read and see something we never saw before or famiiliar words take on new meaning.
Mother's Day is one of the most celebrated days of the year. Not every woman is a mother but we are all daughters. Examine your own relationship, past or present, with your mom. Are/were you the best daughter you could be?
How much a person drinks does not necessarily make him an alcoholic. A person could drink heavily and never cross the line. It is not only what we put in our body; it is what goes on in our head.
Our Children, Our Addiction
Our children may not acknowledge our addiction(s) because of their age or the situation. What we must understand is that when we are in our disease, we are not the only person being judged. Our children may suffer more than we know and it isn't about them.
Our Favorite Prayers
We each learn to pray in our own way in our own words but nothing inspires us more than the Serenity Prayer and The Prayer of St. Francis. These combined with The Lord's Prayer are powerful tools in recovery.
Our Future Selves
How do you see yourself in the future? Do you envision yourself happier and more serene than who you are today? If you do, it doesn't just happen. It takes practice, practice, practice!
Our New Strength in Recovery
There are times when our recovery is challenged by difficult events in life. How we handle these are a true measure and testament to the strength of our recovery and the 12 Steps.
Our Primary Purpose
Responsibility and purpose...two important elements to maintain sobriety. Are we willing to give back to everyone in need or do we only help those within our comfort zone?
Our Recovery Support
Recovery requires that we get some type of encouragement and support from our family and friends. The way you want that to happen is not always the way it works.
