Our Folded Hands

Women helping Women. Reaching out to the Sister who still suffers. Helping each other through the Good times and the Difficult times. To get to the SOBER way of life, One Day at a Time.

Keep it Simple

This above all: To thine own self be true.
—William Shakespeare—
What does this saying mean: “To thine own self be true”? Hadn’t we thought only of ourselves before recovery?

The answer is no. That wasn’t the real us. Each of us lost touch with our real self because of our addiction. We lost our
goals, our feelings, our values. We chased the high. In this way, we lost our
spirit. We became addicts. With sobriety, we find ourselves again—and it feels great! We stop playing a
role and become ourselves—and it’s wonderful. We follow our dreams and
beliefs, not some addictive wild goose chase. We are again free to be ourselves.
Thank you. Higher Power.

Prayer for the Day:  Today, I pray to be myself, to know all of me. I can trust
myself because my spirit is good.
Action for the Day:  Today, I’ll pray: “To thine own self be true.”
