Quote of the Week

“Do the next ‘right thing’.”

While I was drinking, I had a knack for making bad decisions. I choose inappropriate partners in relationships, cheated in my job, and made other short sighted choices that didn’t end well. What I didn’t know at the time was that the majority of the decisions I was making were based on selfish and self-seeking motives. By the end of my drinking, the consequences of these choices surrounded me, and I had to surrender.

When I was new in the program, I once again had many choices to make. How many meetings a week should I go to? Should I get a sponsor right away or wait for the perfect one? When should I get serious about working the Twelve Steps? I learned early on that I should never say no to an A.A. request, and I found that by taking A.A. suggestions my life improved. I also found out the difference between my will (usually based on self) versus God’s will (based on service to others), and this helped me identify the next “right thing” to do.

Now that I’ve been sober a while, I still have a lot of decisions and choices to make. Whether it is business or relationships, etc., I still have to choose between self-will (what I want) or God’s will (what would be best for others or the situation). When I stop to think about it, I always know what the “right thing” to do is, and when I choose this, my life, and other’s, runs more smoothly. I’ve learned, often through trial and error, that this is always the “easier, softer way.”

We stay sober and clean together - one day at a time!
God says that each of us is worth loving.
