KEEP IT SIMPLE #essentialsofrecovery

Write down the advice of him who loves you, though you like it not at present.

~ Anonymous ~

We addicts often learn things the hard way. In the past, we found it very hard to take advice from anyone. It’s still hard to take advice, but it’s getting easier every day. We know now that we can’t handle everything in life by ourselves. We’ve come to believe there is help of us. And we’re learning to ask for help and advice.

Sometimes we don’t like the advice we get. We don’t have to use it. But if it comes from people who love and understand us, we can try to listen. Write it down. Think about it. It may make sense another day.

Prayer for the Day:

Higher Power, please work through people who love me. I need your advice. Help me listen to it.

Action for the Day:

I will make notes to myself, writing down things that seem important. I will read them once in a while.
