No bump in the road


todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

to witness daily how acceptance and attitude can make all the difference in my world

for reminders that I am much more accountable than I was during my drinking days

that today, people actually depend on me to be sober

that my best will just have to be enough today

for people who go out of their way to make a difference

that Step 10 does not read ... "Continued to take your personal inventory and when I was right promptly declared it"

that TK is seeking the help he needs -- if you have the time, drop by and offer a few words of encouragement @
TK's Journey of Recovery

"There is the risk you cannot afford to take, and there is the risk you cannot afford not to take."
-- Peter Drucker

thanks for the step 10 reminder....I'm having trouble NOT taking someones inventory at work. Yesterday, it seems, I thought that was my job. Growing is painful sometimes.

"...today, people actually depend on me to be sober.

That's so easy to forget at times.
Alcoholism is a diseas that makes us all too selfish if we don't keep things in check, isn't it?
