Wednesday 1/28/09 - "JFTNMW"

(JFTNMW I will sit peacefully and serenely in the meadow of my mind)

(Just for today, no matter what!)

JFTNMW I will remember where I came from (an alcoholic with a hopeless state of mind and body), the progress I have made, and realize the distance I have yet to travel in my spiritual journey.

I will remember that I am powerless (over alcohol, what others think, say, or do, and circumstances) and will turn my will and my life over to the care of God that I may have access to His limitless power.

I will count my blessings. I will take time to identify the things I am grateful for such as my sobriety, my loved ones, our health, my needs being met.

I will not consider myself "less than" or "worthless", but rather will see myself as a child of God and of great value.

JFTNMW I will place my husband and children in the palm of God's hand.

I will allow God to throw His heavenly web around me and others that I may be a channel to help them.

I will use the tools I have learned in Alcoholics Anonymous and Al-Anon. I will pray, reach out to other recovering persons, and practice the principles of the program in all my affairs.

I will have courage to allow myself to "touch" others as God "pushes" me to do.

JFTNMW I will drive fear and anxiety away as if they were poison. I will take all necessary steps to switch my perception from the half empty to the half full glass.

I will choose to think well of myself, be satisfied that I have done all that God wanted of me today.

- if I see a lack in myself, I will ask God to help me.

I will not compare myself to others.

I will forgive others, hold no resentments. I will pray for others.

I will live life to the fullest of which I am capable.

I will know:


I AM ENOUGH, just for today

We all have value in Gods eyes. realising that changed my life. I realised what an insult it was to God, when I abused myself or allowed myself to be abused in anyway. I'm Ok. I don't ned to tamper with it.
