Keep It Simple #essentialsofrecovery

If there is no wind, row.

—Latin proverb

At times, staying sober will be easy; at other times, it will be hard. But we must do what is needed to stay sober. Having a hard week? Go to extra meetings. Feeling alone? Call a friend and ask if you can get together. Feel like drinking? Go to a safe place until the urge passes.

We have no choice. We must row when there’s no wind. If not, we’ll fall back into our addiction.

If we work hard, we’ll stay sober. Plus we’ll grow as spiritual people. Hard times test us and make better people. But this will only happen if we keep our Higher Power and our program close to our heart.

Prayer for the Day: Higher Power, help me remember that I grow during hard times. I pray that I’ll accept and use what You’ve given me each day.

Action for the Day: Today, I’ll list five things I learned from my program in hard times.
