“Now that the year is at an end, I’ll take a few minutes to contemplate the progress I’ve made, thank my Higher Power for my growth..Celebrate my achievements”. – Courage to Change
In step 10 of the 12&12 it says “It’s a poor day indeed when we haven’t done something right”.
If I’m working on improving myself, then celebrating my achievements is not gloating. It’s healthy. Today I’ll make a list of all that I have achieved and been given in 2015. I’ll celebrate this success by continuing to do what gave me all these gifts – I’ll work my program, be of service and stay connected to my HP. Happy New Year! ILML!
