IT'S OKAY TO BE ME
Time after time newcomers have tried to keep to themselves certain facts about their lives. . . they have turned to easier methods. . . But they had not learned enough humility. . . BB Pg. 72-73
Humility sounds so much like humiliation, but it really is the ability to look at myself-and honestly accept what i find. I no longer need to be the "smartest" or "dumbest" or any other "est". Finally, it is okay to be me. It is easier for me to accept myself if i share my whole life. If i cannot share in meetings, then I had better have a sponsor-someone with whom I can share those "certain facts" that could lead me back to a drunk, to death. I need to talke all the Steps. I need the Fifth Step to learn true humility. Easier methods do not work.

Good Morning to Everyone, and a Happy Mother's Day to all the Mother's out there, and even the one's that have a Mother to share it with..I find it hard to accept all that i have done in the past, but getting better at it, as i see the results in sharing it with another, and knowing that if i don't share it wether at a meeting, or with another i trust, that i will allow all those feelings to lead me back to drinking..So, for today, I will practice being okay with just being who i am and accepting that i am who GOD wants me to be today, and that i am where GOD wants me to be today..Thank you for letting me share..Tonya
