13 Things I Never Said, Saw, or Felt Before Recovery Consciousness Kicked In

 

Before Recovery Consciousness, thinking, feeling, speaking, and acting in positive, life-giving ways does not come naturally for most people. What a blessing to be open and teachable, caring and loving, and confident and optimistic in sobriety. As the Promises state, “Our whole attitude and outlook upon life will change.”

 

What can you add to this list?

 

 

1. What a beautiful morning! I love getting up early with a full day ahead of me.

2. I am so happy to take the time to meditate before I dash out the door.

3. I think I may have misspoken.

4. I apologize and take full responsibility for this.

5. Look at that amazing little dewy blade of grass glistening in the morning sunlight.

6. No thanks. I’ve had enough.

7. Tell me all about you!

8. I wonder what I may have done to contribute to this problem.

9. I am sure they are doing the best they can. I am going to overlook their blunder and not take it personally.

10. Maybe I have some room to improve in this area.

11. I am so grateful.

12. I see your point.

13. I love my life.

 

 

 

In gratitude, harmony, and support,

    Great ones. I would add. I can now help my family. I can now take on responsibility. I can see people for who they are.

    Yes, a good reminder for me today. One I saw recently from another friend in recovery, signed at the end of her email: ‘Thanks for everything!’

      HI Carmen – thanks for that — actually that is really a much more profound statement than appears on first glance… thanks for every thing – the good the bad and the ugly… wisdom experience for all.
