One Day At A Time #essentialsofrecovery


“Insanity: Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”

–Albert Einstein (1879-1955)

Everyday I get up and fight the fight of ‘I am not good enough.’ Nevertheless, I know I am who I am and that’s what counts. I may never be what others expect me to be and many times those expectations were so great that I used to beat myself up over my failures.

That is the insanity of the compulsion that I am being healed from. I now have a mirror in my bedroom! I now can go without cleaning my house compulsively for those who visit me and now I can stand up for myself. Why? Because I love ME!

Program has given me back who I am. The person I love. My welfare comes first! Above all I am grateful for my sponsor, my Higher Power and this program. I am also grateful to the many men and women who have inspired my life because if it were not for all of these, I would still be in that insanity.

One day at a time …

I will not require everyone’s approval; I will not continually beat myself up when I expect more of myself than I can give; I will continue to love ME and all the good things about me.
