String Of Pearls 15

The following are ideas that have helped me.

  • Sometimes I need to abandon my caution, doubt my fearful instincts and believe the improbable.

  • I am not a pacifist, but I think this nation grossly under estimates the staggering cost of war.

  • Take what you like and leave the rest.

  • What people think of me is none of my business.

  • For me, recovery is a process not an event, most of the time.

  • I was surprised to discover that it is the dailiness of recovery that makes it work.

  • When I was hurting my telephone weighed 500 pounds. To feel better,I had to put it on an exercise program.

  • When someone phones me because they are hurting, they give me far more than I have any hope of giving them.

  • 90 meetings in 90 days was the advice given me when I started. Following that advice was one of the greatest acts of kindness I ever bestowed upon myself.

  • There is the program waltz that if I would have danced it, would have limited my growth in the program. The waltz is repeating the first three steps of the 12 Steps over and over again: ONE two three, ONE two three, One two three.

  • I am not powerless at all. I can make my situation worse anytime I want.
