“…my heart felt callous. Still, I stuck with the AA program; the alternatives were too bleak! I kept coming back and gradually my faith was resurrected.”
– Daily Reflections 2/4/15
I was very callous, bitter, and fearful when I came into the program. I had a hard time with the thought of a higher power but, like the quote says, the alternatives were too bleak.
My desperation and willingness to do the work eventually left me with faith in a higher power which I am now so grateful for. No matter how badly I felt, I didn’t drink or use and I continued to go to meetings and take direction from a sponsor. It’s really that simple — and today I love my life and I’m guided by a higher power through the steps and traditions on a daily basis. Good day or bad day, if I stick with the basics everything turns out alright. ILML!
