Thought of the Day (Happy Thanksgiving for those in the States)




Hi all just today's thought. Enjoy your day, and another 24 hours .

Instead of pretending to be perfectionists,in AA. we are content if we are making progress.The main thing is to be growing. we realize that perfectionism is only a result o ffalse pride and an excuse to save our faces. In AA we are willing ot make mistakes and to stumble, provided we are always stumbling forward. We are not so interested in what we are as in what we are becoming. We are on the way, not at the goal.



I pray that today I may do the next thing, the unselfish thing, the loving thing . I pray that I may be content with doing small things as long as they are right.

Good Love , together we can beat this overcome this disease.
