participating in my own program

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

for the benefits from working and practicing Step 4 -- "Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves."  After doing this with my sponsor, I got 3 immediate results (1) seeing patterns of my thinking (2) seeing patterns of my thinking and (3) seeing patterns of my thinking.
But seriously folks, I now am able to see my part in just about everything that happens in my life. 
I call it my resentment prevention step.

that I'm doing pretty well these days in spite of the fact that I'm not currently working steps with any sponsees.  This is new for me.  Since I began sponsoring people at 1 year sober, I've almost always been working steps with someone.

how AA-speak turns up in most areas of my life.  Of course, most people I am in contact with are AAer's.

Appreciation is a wonderful thing.
It makes what is excellent in others belong to us as well.
- Voltaire

I hope to continue to have people that I sponsor. I too am really glad that I see my part in just about everything. And the pattern--yes, I recognize what went on.
