Recovery Goals - Recovered 1053
Release Date: 01/15/2020
We have spent weeks working our program using technology to stay connected. But now, face to face meetings are starting up again.info_outline Complacency - Recovered 1092
Complacency can be defined as a feeling of contentment or self-satisfaction, especially when coupled with an unawareness of danger, trouble, or controversy. To say an individual is acting complacently means that they are taking things for granted. When an individual becomes complacent they no longer feel that they need to work in order to find success in life – they view it as something they have already earned.info_outline Trust - Recovered 1090
Do you know anyone who is reliable? Honest? Capable? Strong? Are you feeling trustworthy yourself?info_outline Recovery and the Pandemic Part 2 - Recovered 1089
Even in ideal circumstances, addiction recovery can be difficult. Add a pandemic into the mix, and things can start to feel overwhelming.info_outline Recovery and the Pandemic - Recovered 1086
COVID-19 presents unique challenges for all of us. We find that being at home, with little to no access to in-person meetings, is creating hardships and challenges for us in recovery.info_outline Sandy B Part 6 - Recovered 1087

It's a subtle difference that has vastly different outcomes. With patience, you will eventually reach your goal. Tolerance, however, will only serve to keep you stuck in the status quo. Patience is you allowing others time to rise to the challenge; tolerance is accepting whatever mediocrity they give you.info_outline Sandy B Part 5 - Recovered 1085

People driven by envy carry a large boulder on their shoulders for all to see and touch. Everybody sees or senses it except the person who is being tormented by its consistent whisper. Envy will drive other people away from us when what we really need is to be involved in a recovering community to heal. Because recovery takes place in a community, envy ensures isolation which can lead to failure.info_outline
In our program, it’s our responsibility to make plans. Making plans help us to achieve goals. Goals to improve our well being. Goals to help us be happy, joyous, and free. We are told, it is okay to plan, just that we should be careful not to plan the outcomes. We can make a plan, we should just be careful that our plan doesn't turn into an expectation. An expectation that is unreasonably high can turn into a premeditated resentment. And resentments are dangerous for us alcoholics.
Tonight, we talk about Making Recovery Goals.

So, we alcoholics need to be careful in this business of resolution making we need to be careful as we plan our recovery life for the next year. We need to be flexible as we plan. Our higher power may have a different idea of what the outcome will be. My experience, I need to be flexible or else I will be miserable.
