Keep It Simple #essentialsofrecovery

. . . he who finds himself loses his misery.

Matthew Arnold

We have lost a lot of misery. In it’s place inside us, a spirit grows. . .as love is added.

Especially self-love. In our illness, we came to hate ourselves. It was really our illness we hated. We couldn’t find ourselves. All we saw was what others saw—our illness.

In recovery, we’ve found ourselves again. We’ve found we’re good people. We’ve also come to love the world around us. We see we have something to offer this world—ourselves.

Why? Because we have found ourselves.

Prayer for the Day: I’m so glad to be alive. At times life hurts, but, in living, I found You. Thank-you Higher Power. I pray that we may always be close.

Action for the Day: I will list ten great things I’ve discovered about myself in recovery.
