Dec. 17, 2013 - Step by Step

Step by Step
Tuesday, Dec. 17, 2013 
Today, I make a conscious decision not to say anything negative to or about anyone or about any situation in my life. Instead, I will let only the positive in and, if I cannot find anything good to say or do, I will say or do nothing. Despite any problems in my life or their enormity, I have literally everything if I am sober; I have a beginning if I haven't drunk in the last 24 Hours; I have hope if I am still drinking but have been tossed the lifeline of AA. Without sobriety or even the hope for it, other problems in my life will likely worsen simply because I'm either too drunk to deal with them or I'm trying to avoid them. And as for those other problems in my life, instead of complaining, I will deal with them as best I can and know that I have given my best. I might also learn that the positive is a much more serene place than the negative. Today, I have no time or need for the negative. And our common journey continues. Step by step. - Chris M., 2013
