Sometimes the healthiest thing I can do for myself is to admit that I am not perfect. I am human. I make mistakes. Today I will have the courage to look the truth in the face, admit my errors and achievements, appreciate my growth. and make amends where I have done harm. I will not attempt to manage or control what is beyond my powers. I will dedicate myself to managing my own life, and only mine.

There is only one corner of the world you can be sure of improving.and that is your own self.

As I look at my fitness, nutrition and personal goals, I seek progress not perfection. I admit I am not perfect, but I am making positive changes and I rejoice in my growth as I seek to eliminate my character defects. Strength comes from facing adversity and not giving in, not surrendering, not giving up.

I led an AA meeting this week.. The topic was Step Five. I just want to share again this powerful prayer hoping it blesses and inspires you as it does me.
Higher Power, thank You for helping me complete my housecleaning. I can now look the world in the eye. I can be alone at perfect peace and ease. My fears have fallen from me. I have begun to feel your nearness. I have begun to have a spiritual experience. I feel I am on the Broad Highway, walking hand in hand with the Spirit of the Universe.

In working Step Five I experienced a spiritual moment when I realized that if I keep people at a distance....not sharing my personal inventory of defects of character with another person... I also keep God at a distance. God is nearer to me than I think and I can experience Him by loving people and allowing people to love me.

I am so grateful to sober today and continuously working the Twelve Steps in all areas of my life I am so happy to have you as a SparkFriend. Your lvoe and support is truly appreciated emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

We must look inside ourselves to free ourselves. The issue of all growth is to make a change for the better and then to have an unrelenting willingness to shoulder the responsibility this entails (The Big Book,p.115).

Each day is an opportunity for personal growth. Self-esteem grows as we do in recovery. Without dreams and goals, there is nothing keep use moving forward. Out Higher Power accompanies us in our own personal journey each step of the way.

I am empowered to succeed because I realize there is power in powerlessness.

I hope you have a Sparktacular Week! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Courage is very important. Like a muscle, it is strengthened by use. A very dear SparkFriend this week posted on our Recovering Alcoholics team thread, Sobriety Blessings, this incredible reflection, "Sobriety has given me the courage to do the right thing in spire of my fear."

In my blog, Strength Training Builds More Than Muscle, I focused on having the courage to change our lifestyle and to reach our goals, our heart's desires.

Success is not final.
Failure is not fatal.
It is the courage to continue that counts.

Blessings today and always! emoticon

Courage is fear that has said its prayers!
