PostSubject: Today's Thought 5/5/2011~ Whatever you can do or dream; you can do   Thu 05 May 2011, 8:46 am

For those of you who go to groups or meetings sometimes it can be difficult to do other things as your recovery advances. Sometimes you feel like your not doing what you are "supposed" to do if you miss a meeting or two.

Today's Thought has a message that may help you with your decisions.

Whatever you can do or dream you can do, begin it.
--Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe


I signed up to take a course in something I'm kind of interested in. I'm pretty anxious about it. I don't have the skills and experience that the other students have. I don't know if I can keep up with the work and still go to enough meetings. And even if I get through it, I doubt that I can afford to go further.


First, let me congratulate you for the courage and self-esteem it took for you to begin something new in recovery. Recovery is not an end in itself; as we frequently hear in meetings, it's a bridge back to life. Education is a path that beckons many recovering people. Taking just one step, like signing up for a course, furthers you on your journey.

At the same time, you'll want to take care to protect your recovery as you engage in new pursuits. Staying close to the program by going to regular and frequent meetings is still the top priority for anyone who doesn't want to relapse. The work we do to maintain our recovery is what makes everything else possible.

As for your doubts and fears, it's natural for them to come up. Instead of giving them too much attention, you can use this opportunity to calm and center yourself with meditation and to ask in prayer for help and courage in carrying out your Higher Power's will for you.

Today, I take a small step forward on my journey, without judging myself or my rate of progress.


"I will let yesterday end so that today can begin."
