POWERLESS November 23

While I was trying to manage and control my loved one's life, I had let my personal appearance go. I looked in the mirror and saw the results of my obsession. I thought that working on me was difficult. I could no longer blame others for how I looked and felt. I admitted that I was powerless over the addict and came to believe that only faith in a Power greater than myself could free me to live in recovery, one day at a time.

As I was powerless over my loved ones, I also seemed to be powerless over doing good things for me. I had trouble getting started; I had so many good excuses. With step work, I began to see that I could be good to myself, regardless of my situation, with my Higher Power’s help. I became ready for my Higher Power to remove my excuses and help me start managing my own life.

When I get scared of what might happen next, my program reminds me that projecting the future and bringing up the past keeps me frozen, unable to move ahead in recovery. Faith in a Power greater than me replaces that fear and helps me grow.

Thought for Today: I will be a good friend to myself. I will do a good deed for me. I will pamper myself as I normally do for others. Today, I will focus on my good feelings and fun in my life. I will be thankful. I will laugh today for there is joy in living.

“If you nurture your mind, body, and spirit, your time will expand. You will gain a new perspective that will allow you to accomplish much more.” Brian Koslow
