Self seeking is leaving....

I more and more feel less and less selfish! Does that make sense. There were times that all I wanted was for me. That I only thought of myself and nothing else. Today it is changing. I care more about people, family and work. My thoughts don't automatically go to what is best for me, but what is best for others as well. I am not perfect. There are still so many times that I seek what can fulfill me right away. I need to center myself when this happens, get grounded and help others. It happens alot when I haven't checked in at a meeting or when I haven't read or prayed or meditated. Keeping myself grounded is the only way to live one day at a time, and if I don't then I cant promise myself the daily reprieve. Today I will have that reprieve and take advantage of not drinking.

Today I am grateful:
  • Work slowly coming together.
  • Surviving the first time speaking at a meeting, and people saying that what I shared helped them.
  • Having everything I need today for a great day.
  • A restful night uninterrupted by alcoholic waking up...shakes, etc...

  1. When we get to steps 6 and 7 we start to turn from ourselves toward God and other people. The steps give us the freedom to develop a new life style. We do become less selfish.
