KEEP IT SIMPLE #essentialsofrecovery



I never loved another person the way I loved myself.

~ Mae West ~

This sums up how we used to live. We were in love with ourselves. We had to be on center stage. Our self-will ran riot.

Recovery pulls us out of that world. We learn to focus on others. We learn to reach out to them with love. This is the best way to love ourselves.

This doesn’t mean that we live our lives through others. It means we invite others into our lives. It also means we ask to be invited into their lives. Recovery breaks down our self-will. It makes room for others in our lives.

Prayer for the Day

Higher Power, I give You my self-will. I know You’ll do better with it than me.

Action for the Day

I’ll list three ways my self-will has messed up my life. How am I doing at turning over these things to my Higher Power?
