AA Thought for the Day

April 30

Fearless and Thorough
At some of these we balked. We thought we could find an easier, softer way.
But we could not. With all the earnestness at our command, we beg of you to
be fearless and thorough from the very start. Some of us have tried to hold
on to our old ideas and the result was nil until we let go absolutely.
- Alcoholics Anonymous, p 58

Thought to Ponder . . .
Courage is not the absence of fear, but the action in spite of the fear.

AA-related 'Alconym' . . .
S T E P S = Solutions Through Each Powerful Step.

~*~A.A. Thoughts For The Day~*~

"One qualification for a useful life is
the ability to compromise cheerfully.
Compromise comes hard to us 'all-or-nothing' drunks.
Nevertheless we must never lose sight of the fact
that progress is nearly always characterized by
a series of improving compromises.
There are circumstances in which it is necessary
to stick flat-footed to one's convictions.
Deciding when to compromise
and when not to compromise always calls for
the most careful discrimination."
Bill W., Twelve Concepts for World Service, pp. 39-40
As Bill Sees It, p. 59

Thought to Consider . . .
Wisdom in its purest form is sometimes
knowing what to overlook.

Behavior, Attitude, Thinking, and Habits

*~*~*~*~*^Just For Today!^*~*~*~*~*

>From "Alcoholics Anonymous Number Three":
"I thought, I think I have the answer. Bill was very, very grateful that he had been released from this terrible thing and he
had given God the credit for having done it, and he's so grateful about it he wants to tell other people about it. That
sentence, 'The Lord has been so wonderful to me, curing me of this terrible disease, that I just want to keep telling
people about it,' has been a sort of a golden text for the A.A. program and for me."
2001 AAWS, Inc., Fourth Edition; Alcoholics Anonymous, pg. 191

*~*~*~*~*^ Grapevine Quote ^*~*~*~*~*

I can choose to carry the weight of the world and my problems around on my shoulders, or I can turn them all over to
my Higher Power and let her worry about them.
Toronto, Ontario, May 1984
"Now I Have a Choice!,"
Spiritual Awakenings II

~*~*~*~*^ Big Book & Twelve N' Twelve Quotes of the Day ^*~*~*~*~*

"In dealing with resentments, we set them on paper. We listed
people, institutions or principles with whom we were angry. We asked
ourselves why we were angry. In most cases it was found that our
self-esteem, our pocketbooks, our ambitions, our personal
relationships,(including sex) were hurt or threatened."
~Alcoholics Anonymous, 4th Edition, How It Works, pg. 64~

"We feel we are on the Broad Highway, walking hand in hand with the
Spirit of the Universe."
~Alcoholics Anonymous, 4th Edition, Into Action, Page 75~

Alcoholics Anonymous saved my life, and it comes first.
-Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions p. 159

Misc. AA Literature - Quote

Word of Mouth
'In my view, there isn't the slightest objection to groups who wish to remain strictly anonymous, or to people who think
they would not like their membership in A.A. known at all. That is their business, and this is a very natural reaction.
'However, most people find that anonymity to this degree is not necessary, or even desirable. Once one is fairly sober,
and sure of this, there seems no reason for failing to talk about A.A. membership in the right places. This has a
tendency to bring in other people. Word of mouth is one of our most important communications.
'So we should criticize neither the people who wish to remain silent, nor even the people who wish to talk too much
about belonging to A.A., provided they do not do so at the public level and thus compromise our whole Society.' LETTER, 1962

Prayer For The Day: Dear Lord, please help me be the inspiration in someone's day. Help me not to discourage but always encourage.
"No matter what you have done up to this moment, you get 24 brand-new hours to spend every single day." --Brian Tracy
AA gives us an opportunity to recreate ourselves, with God's help, one day at a time. --Rufus K.
When you get to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on. --Franklin D. Roosevelt
We stay sober and clean together - one day at a time!
God says that each of us is worth loving.
