Expectations guide our progress in recovery, but having unrealistic expectations during the process sets us up for failure. When we set expectations so high, we add unneeded stress and decrease our chance of success.

What I have learned is that doing the next right thing brings about self-esteem, self-confidence, and self-love. This is a gift beyond measure. But the process of discernment can be tricky.

One of the famous sayings used by Twelve Step groups is that you have to give it away in order to keep it. What this is referring to is that service work can help the giver as much as the receiver.

And when we learn to finally drop those "rocks," we can become who we want to be, and our acts of humility, willingness, and courage will have a healing ripple effect on one another. And that's where the Steps come in: Step 6, Step 7, and Step 10 are designed to help you manage your shortcomings with grace and humility.

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.

Our generous Recovered Podcast Community allows us to be self supporting and not rely on outside contributions.  If you would like to join us, there are three ways.

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.
