Keep It Simple

I’m as pure as the driven slush. —Tallulad Bankhead—
The Steps are filled with words and phrases like shortcomings, exact nature of our wrongs, persons we had harmed, and when we were wrong. The Steps help us accept all parts of who we are.
Our program asks us to share these parts of ourselves with others. We heal by doing this.
It’s hard to talk about how wrong we can be, but we must. It’s part of how we recover.
Remember, all of us have bad points. At times, we act like jerks. When we can talk about our mistakes, we end up having less shame inside of us.
Prayer for the Day:  Higher Power, help me to love and accept myself—as You love and accept me. Give me the courage to share all my secret wrongs.
Action for the Day:  Today, I’ll review my Fourth Step. If I haven’t done this Step, I’ll start today.
