“I cannot stay sober on yesterday’s meetings or past 12 step calls; I need to put my gratitude into action today. Without action, my gratitude is just a pleasant motion. I need to put it into action by working step 12, by carrying the message and practicing the principles in all my affairs.”
– Daily Reflections 5/25
This is a great reminder that everything that is good in my life, the reason that I am even still here, is from working a program of rigorous action on a daily basis. When I do that and I carry the message, I open the door to living happy, joyous, and free. I am able to be the man that I am meant to be. Without doing the daily work, I quickly fall into “self-will” and cut off my connection to a HP. Carrying the message and practicing the principles in all my affairs is truly showing gratitude. ILML!
