“Our real purpose is to fit ourselves to be of maximum service to God and the people about us.” – AA pg. 77
My sponsor once asked me if I knew what my personal purpose in life was. I said, “No I don’t.” He opened up the big book to page 77 and then said, “If, when you lay your head to sleep at night, you’ve stayed sober and done what’s written here, you’re a success. You’ve fulfilled your primary purpose. Even if you didn’t get this, win that, receive approval from someone else, if you’ve done what’s written here you are a winner. Remember that.” I keep that in mind, and having achieved my purpose – one day at a time – ILML!
