Difficult situations have never gotten any better when I blamed others, and avoided taking ownership.
Ownership is asking myself how my actions contributed to this difficult situation. Admitting I was powerless over alcohol & other drugs is the first step, but there’s still 12 steps in total. Even after completing the 12 steps, I’m never really finished working the program.
Similarly I’m never really finished taking ownership. I don’t just want to live a life, where I barely get by (white knuckling my way through). I want a full & complete life. A real life of value, and substance. Of course there will be bad days yes, but there will be less bad days when I take ownership for my actions and live up to my commitments.
If I can be clean & sober for 2,272 days, I can do anything! I can even celebrate today by being a #HellaSober responsible adult. This means I have to be radically transparent & radically open minded.
Gratitude of the day: I’m thankful for being reminded that avoiding responsibility only puts distance between me & my sobriety. There is no room for ego in my sobriety.
Action of the day: Today I will think of a time when I blamed someone for something that was really my problem.
