My internship started this week and it has been such an honor to be allowed to sit in with people who are seeking help. I feel overwhelmed and grateful for the glimpse into their lives and the struggles and challenges they’ve faced. Their strength and fortitude are amazing.
In 12 Step meetings I also hear stories of grace, and courage and amazing strength from other members. They show me the way with what they share, especially when it’s new territory for me. And yes there is always some new territory through which we find our footing and grow. Each new life experience helps me develop my frame of reference for how to live a whole, healthy, happy and balanced life.
It’s part of the process of the adventure to keep learning in life. That’s why we keep coming back to meetings. It really does work to continually show us new options, new awarenesses and expand our lifescape. We are blessed to be able to access such a rich source of knowledge, experience and possibilities through the 12 Step Programs.
Affirmation for the Day – ” I am learning at every meeting. ”
Remember to say the affirmation at least 3 times whenever you remember it, preferably in front of a mirror.
