The Language of Letting Go January 20thNew Beginnings Resentments are the blocks that hold us back from loving others and ourselves. Resentments do not punish the other person; they punish us. They become barriers to feeling good and enjoying life. They prevent us from being in harmony with the world. Resentments are hardened chunks of anger. They loosen up and dissolve with forgiveness and letting go. Letting go of resentments does not mean we allow the other person to do anything to us that…See More

Faith with out works is dead

Those words are so very true. Our daily reprieve is contingent upon a spiritual program of action. With out action we lack experience, with out experience we lack faith. With out action, experience, and faith.. We remain hopeless and are bound to drink or use again. Each is directly linked to the other and meant to bring happiness & peace. Each is to help us live life on life's terms, because it is not always easy. Life is constantly changing- good, bad, & what have you. In my experience, the only thing that has helped me walk through life sober with moments of happiness and peace has and still is a connection with a power greater than myself. With out which I would surely be insane. The beauty of it all is we each get our own experience as long as we are willing to take the action that is necessary for growth. So if you are new- do what most of us have done: go to meetings, get a sponsor, work the steps, be of service, get commitments,  read the big book, and things will start falling into place exactly how they should. In my case not always how I've wanted them to be but in retrospect: exactly how they needed to be.

I am so grateful that god continually restore me to sanity. My insanity manifest itself in so many different ways (despite being sober for over 3 years). With each and every day more is revealed to me. This illness is so cunning, baffling, and powerful. I am grateful that I haven't given up on god and god hasn't given up on me. I am so grateful that this power greater than myself knows what its doing because I have no idea. If it were up to me nothing would ever change but I pray for gods…

Walking through fear...

f there is one things that I've learned in 2011 it is how truly powerless I am. Step one is a beautiful step: We conceded to our innermost self that we are alcoholic, we admit that we have an illness, and that our lives are unmanageable because of us.... because of our perceptions, expectations, and defects of character. It is stated that this is not only true during our drinking and/or using days but also all throughout our journey of sobriety. How can this be? We have a disease…

I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and demand it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on( mrdavidakoto001@hotmail.com ) for the full details.

Have a nice day.
Mr. Akoto.
