Saying


Having been in recovery a while now, I realise there is much that I can do by action and do do by example to those in early days. One of these is to say 'nothing' if I do not have anything positive to say.

Wise words Kevin. I'm getting a bit better at 'not saying.' At least I'm not opening my mouth to swap feet these days.

whats that thing we're suppose to gauge our speech with?....


"Is it kind. Is it helpful. Is it necessary. Does it improve on the silence."

Good advice. Just like Grandma said. "If you can't say nothing nice to someone, don't say anything at all".

I think i remember that right.

Heard in a meeting today " I don't want to be in the gutter. I want to be a chandlier." That got me thinking....if you keep going to meetings you won't be in the gutter, and you won't want to be a chandlier either. Just happy to be who you are........

Yeah, it's a nice change too, Dee. Because I know I always wanted to be a chandlier before recovery......just wasn't sparkly enough.

And...

If you can't help someone, don't hurt them.

Heard somewhere.
