STEP TEN: Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it.

"Courtesy, kindness, justice, and love are the keynotes by which we may come into harmony with practically anybody. When in doubt we can always pause, saying, 'Not my will, but Thine, be done.' And we can often ask ourselves, 'Am I doing to others as I would have them do to me - today?'"

1952, Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, page 93

This step and the Al-Anon slogan "Let It Begin With Me" helps me to look at myself and own my side of the street. It is important in today, not to take on what is not mine. Old tapes are killers. For so many years I had a false sense of reality and responsibility, so in today, I need to look at what is mine, take it to God, and work on changing it, validating and affirming it, and most of all, practice, practice a new way of thinking into good living.

Something I posted on another site in November 2004 on another site.

Step Ten for me is something I can work all day long. Any time I hit a wall, have pause for thought, I can stop, say the Serenity Prayer, take a look at what brought me to where I am in the moment, the decisions made, the steps I took or didn't take, and what I need to do to move forward or turn around and take a new direction, or just stop, find acceptance, not put on too many expectations, and wait on my God to show me the way.


Love always,


I share because I care.
