“All AA progress can be reckoned in terms of just two words: humility and responsibility. Our whole spiritual development can be accurately measured by our degree of adherence to these magnificent standards. To honor these precepts I need only to pray, and care for my fellow man as if each one were my brother.”
– Daily Reflections 4/28
This quote keeps it very simple, which works for me very well. By taking direction, accepting that I don’t have all the answers (keeps me humble), and practicing the principles of the program on a daily basis, I demonstrate to myself that I am responsible. When I do this I am able to help others more effectively and love my life even when things are not going the way I want them to go. I love the simplicity, I have to be humble and responsible, that’s all. I can do that. ILML!
