Each day a new Beginning

Women are often caught between conforming to existing standards or role definitions and exploring the promise of new alternatives.

—Stanlee Phelps and Nancy Austin—
This is a time of exploring for many of us. Recovery means change in habits, change in behavior, change in

attitudes. And change is seldom easy. But change we must, if we want to recover successfully. We do have support

for trying our new alternatives. We have support from our groups and our higher power. Perhaps we want a career or
more education. Perhaps we want to develop a hobby or try a sport. Sharing that desire and then looking for support guarantees some guidance. This program has given us a chance to start fresh–to become our inner desire.
We are only caught in an old pattern if we assent to it. The going won’t always be easy, but support and guidance are available and free if we but look for them. Today I will consider my alternatives. Do I want to make a change?
