You will not regret the past nor wish to shut the door on it. . . —Alcoholics Anonymous—
As we work the Steps, we fix our broken life. Many things in our new life have been painful. Our addiction to alcohol
or drugs made it all worse. But if things hadn’t gotten so bad we might not have gotten into recovery.
We have changed so much! We have learned so much about life, our Higher Power, and ourselves in order to fix our lives. We can’t act like nothing in the past matters. It does matter, because it brought us to this new life. And is better already!
Prayer for the Day: Higher Power, help me face my past and heal the wounds—my wounds and others’ wounds.
Action for the Day : Today, I’ll list three things I’m ashamed of. How can I make amends for them when I work Step Nine? I will call my sponsor if I need help.
