I just want to share that I have been in a place where I could not post as regularly as I have in the past.
The quote from today's Courage to Change is inspirational to me. I am beginning to pray again, and am working on renewed faith in my Higher Power, by looking for the good.
The quote at the end of today's reading is from Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, and it reads, "He that respects himself is safe from others; he wears a coat of mail that none can pierce."
I do desire the self-respect that keeps me safe and sound. I've a doctor's appointment today that is going to give me a chance to look at how I will use certain tools outside the program to get well, after having stumbled right around the Thanksgiving holidays.
I think it is now that I must really accept that humility is not something unkind, that I do to myself. It is something my Higher Power gives me each time I admit that I am just as capable of being brought to my knees, as any newcomer to our program.
Each time we revisit our beginnings, we have the potential to learn something new. This time around the steps, I am already seeing my life in a new context.
