is the sixth principle behind the Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous.
As much as anything, I'm grateful that I was willing enough NOT to give up 5 minutes before the miracle.
My beginnings in AA were not pretty I was only willing to attend some meetings; I had NO intention of stopping drinking. It wasn't until I became willing to try something new that I began making any real progress.
This seems to remain true today with everything I do.
todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful
for some new realizations of the connection between progression - obsessions - compulsion as those things relate to my alcoholism and alcoholic thinking and behavior
that my self will does not run quite so riot these days
that I usually try to take my fellows feelings into consideration
that Designer Girl is back from rehab - check out her blog It's a Girl Thing
for some real progress with the bathroom remodel -- the sheetrock is all up now
Truth does not become more true by virtue of the fact that the entire world agrees with it, nor less so even if the whole world disagrees with it.
