Each day a new Beginning

I long to speak out the intense inspiration that comes to me from lives
of strong women.  —Ruth Benedict—
Each day that we thoughtfully make choices about our behavior and our attitudes, we offer ourselves as examples

to others–examples of strength. As women on recovery paths, we find encouragement from one another’s
successes. No one of us met our experiences very successfully before discovering this program. In most cases we lacked the structure that comes with the Steps. Direction was missing from our lives. Too often we passively
bounced from man to man, job to job, drunk to drunk. When working the Steps, we are never in doubt about the manner for proceeding in any situation. The Steps provide the parameters that secure
our growth. They help us to see where we’ve been and push us toward the goals, which crowd our dreams.

We have changed. We will continue to grow. The past need haunt us no more. The future can be faced with confidence. Whatever strength is needed to fulfill our destinies will find us. And our forward steps will make the way
easier for the women who follow. What a blessing these Steps are! They answer my every question.
They fulfill my every need.
