KEEP IT SIMPLE #essentialsofrecovery

You’ve got to do your own growing, no matter how tall your grandfather was.

~ Irish proverb ~

Each of us has been given recovery. Now it’s up to each of us what we do with it. At times, we’ll work hard and grow quickly. At other times, our growth will be slower. This is okay. We’re not in a race. Our pace is not important. What is important is that we’re always working on our recovery.

We’re all part of a fellowship, a caring group. We’re one of many. But we’re each important. Each one of us will have a special way to work our programs through our readings, friends, meetings, and what we know of how life works. Each of us puts together a miracle of recovery. We then take our miracle and share it with others, so they can build their miracle.

Prayer for the Day

Higher Power, help me work at growing. Help me be a person who is an important part of a group.

Action for the Day

Today, I’ll work at seeing myself as very important. I’ll remind myself that others’ recovery also depends on my recovery. I am needed.
