KEEP IT SIMPLE #essentialsofrecovery

Let me listen to me and not to them.

~ Gertrude Stein 

Often we try to please everyone around us. But this may not make us happy, and so we get angry. We feel taken advantage of.

We may be kind to others, but first we must love ourselves. How? By learning to listen to ourselves. To our dreams. To our higher power. By doing this we’ll be more happy. And those around us will probably be more happy too.

As our AA medallions say, “To Thine Own Self Be True.”

Prayer for the Day:

I pray that I’ll listen to that gentle, loving voice inside me. Higher Power, help me make me make my “conscious contact” with You better.

Action for the Day:

I will write down why I need to be true to myself.
