“The Twelve Steps won’t work for anyone unless they are practiced… over and over… good habits—just like bad ones—strengthen with use and time.” – In God’s Care
Many times each year people ask me why I spend an hour or two each morning at Starbucks with all these books from my spiritual backpack, highlighting and writing. In order for me to live that part of the 12th step that says “practice these principles in all our affairs,” I have to work the steps daily. My morning rituals are how I do this. I used to think going to meetings, being of service, sponsorship, and prayer were enough. I was wrong. When I love myself enough to dedicate time to working my program every day, ILML!
