April 9, 2015 – Readings in Recovery: Step by Step

Step by Step
Thursday, April 9, 2015
Today, I’ll experience freedom from resentments and feel 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 let them go – and not take them back. Today, I ask my Higher Power that I may feel the freedom from resentments and all their residual garbage – anger, isolation, revenge and the knowledge that I am allowing them to control me. For 24 Hours, I am a resentment-free zone. And our common journey continues. Step by step. – Chris M., 2015
