Step by Step

Sunday, June 25, 2017

Today, of all that I feel, gratitude is foremost – gratitude for grabbing the lifeline of AA, for the common sense to hold onto it, for the support, experience, strength and hope of all the people I have found here and, perhaps above all, for the gift of the chance to recover, to put all that pain, destruction, fear, self-pity and self-seeking behind me. And I will not reach into yesterday and bring its garbage into today but understand that my recovery is a day-to-day process regardless of how many 24 hours of sobriety I have been blessed with. And I will understand that the gratitude I feel today is the birth of humility – and it is in humility that I feel all the good there is to feel in being sober today. And our common journey continues. Step by step. – Chris M., 2017
