16. Committed Vigilant Humble
Recovery isn’t something that someday I’m going to do, it’s something that everyday I am doing.
Taking the first step was hard for me. Staying committed to working my program, was even harder. Life happens, circumstances show up unexpectedly, new emotions can rise.
It’s okay to take a minute to process Life as it happens. If I’m still learning (and I always am), growing my program means I remain vigilant, I stay committed, I stay humble.
I know myself. What’s not okay, is not being accountable. Not communicating my feelings. Not working my program. Not being honest with myself. Not checking my ego at the door. Risking my program isn’t worth it. Recovery isn’t something that someday I’m going to do, it’s something that everyday I am doing.
Gratitude of the day: Today I’m thankful for humbling me. My higher power wants me to succeed. My friends & family want me to succeed. I can do this by working my program daily.
Action of the day: Today I’ll list the ways I am committed to working my program. Focusing on this list regularly helps me find ways to follow through with them.
