One Day At A Time #essentialsofrecovery


~VISION~

A rock pile ceases to be a rock pile the moment a single man contemplates it, bearing within him the image of a cathedral.

–Antoine De Saint-Exupery

It never ceases to amaze me how the disease of compulsive overeating distorts the vision. Some compulsive overeaters can look into a mirror and see a fat person where there is none. Others can look into the same mirror and not see the weight that is there.

Recovery brings new eyes to the compulsive overeater. It lets us to see what’s really there in the mirror. Recovery allows each of us to see the cathedral we really are, rather than the pile of rubble we think we see. Recovery corrects our vision.

One Day at a Time . . .

As I work my recovery program, I will see myself as I really am, rather than seeing what the disease shows me.
