DAILY REFLECTIONS #essentialsofrecovery


COMMITMENT

Understanding is the key to right principles and attitudes, and right action is the key to good living.

~ TWELVE STEPS AND TWELVE TRADITIONS, p. 125 

There came a time in my program of recovery when the third stanza of the Serenity Prayer—”The wisdom to know the difference”—became indelibly imprinted in my mind. From that time on, I had to face the ever-present knowledge that my every action, word and thought was within, or outside, the principles of the program. I could no longer hide behind self-rationalization, nor behind the insanity of my disease. The only course open to me, if I was to attain a joyous life for myself (and subsequently for those I love), was one in which I imposed on myself an effort of commitment, discipline, and responsibility.
