April 9, 2014 – Step by Step

Step by Step
Wednesday, April 9, 2014

Today, I want to experience for 24 Hours the freedom from resentments and feel the relief from the weight that is required to carry them. If I ask my Higher Power to take from me no other character defect, I will focus primarily on the one that can be as catastrophic as alcohol, sometimes even more catastrophic. If I can be resentment-free for just one day, I may learn that continuing to harbor grudges is not worth the relief and freedom that come when I disempower them and let them go – and not take them back. Today, I will ask my Higher Power in humility that I may feel the freedom from resentments and all their residual garbage – anger, isolation, revenge and the knowledge that I am empowering who or what I resent with control over me. For just 24 Hours, I will be a resentment-free zone. And our common journey continues. Step by step. – Chris M., 2014
