KEEP IT SIMPLE #essentialsofrec #Recovery #illness



Whatever is in the heart will come up to the tongue.

~ Persian proverb ~


During our illness, we wouldn’t let people get close to us. We spoke much of what was in our heart. And much of what filled our heart was sadness, anger, and hopelessness. Those who wanted to be close to us heard what was in our heart. In short, we had become our illness.

Recovery is about changing what’s in our heart. We open our heart to the program and to its healing. We open our heart up to our Higher Power.

The first three Steps are about opening our hearts. They’re about honesty and needing others. They’re about turning our will and our lives over to a Higher Power. If you’re wondering where you are with these Steps, listen to the words you speak.

Prayer for the Day


Higher Power, keep my heart open to the first three Steps.

Action for the Day


Today, I’ll work at really listening to what I have to say.
