Queens and more ...
I invest my time in what I truly love. Step Eleven is a discipline that allows me and my Higher Power to be together, reminding me that, with God's help, intuition and inspiration are possible. Practice of the Step brings on self-love. In a consistent attempt to improve my conscious contact with a Higher Power, I am subtly reminded of my unhealthy past, with its patterns of grandoise thinking and false feelings of omnipotence. When I ask for the power to carry out God's will for me, I am made aware of my powerlessness. Humility and a healthy self-love are compatible, a direct result of working Step Eleven.

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful
for the progress I see in myself as well as so many others
that mistakes can usually be corrected
tha Scott is taking care of himself today
that my friend Bob is back at meetings and lunch -- what a treat!
that I went to see a movie by myself for the first time in probably 30 years -- I saw The Queen and loved it!
that I have the choice of NOT listening to someone else's favorite music when I surf the blogosphere -- alas, the road gets narrower!
Whenever you do a thing, act as if all the world were watching.
