Continuing to do anything in our daily lives usually means getting better at it. And so it goes with Step Ten of AA Alcoholics Anonymous. Nobody ever really enjoys admitting to being wrong, it’s much easier to blame others. Admitting when we are wrong and promptly being accountable for our side of the street is absolutely necessary in order for us to maintain our spiritual progress in recovery. The best part about practicing the Tenth Step of AA in our daily lives is that the more we exercise self-discovery, honesty, humility, and reflection, the fewer apologies, and amends we have to make!...info_outline Joe and Charlie Part 7 - Recovered 1266

“Every A.A. has found that he can make little headway in this new adventure of living until he first backtracks and really makes an accurate and unsparing survey of the human wreckage he has left in his wake.” Remember, you have acted with courage working all of your previous steps in AA and staying sober! With Step Eight you have the opportunity to translate your experience of courage into developing a compassionate spirit. The exact wording of step 8 is: Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all. “The readiness to take the full consequences...info_outline Joe and Charlie Part 6 - Recovered 1264

Step Seven of AA’s Alcoholics Anonymous Twelve Step recovery program is about getting rid of character defects and replacing them by practicing humility and spiritual principles. Working on the seventh step requires frequent thoughtfulness and commitment to being honest, courageous, and humble. We discovered our assets and shortcomings when working on steps four and five. With Step 7 we became prepared to deal with these qualities so that in Step 7 we could be ready to act. The exact wording of step 7 is: Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings.

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.
What were your thoughts, experience of the Serenity Prayer?
Was it off putting, or was it comforting?
Did the word God bother you?
Early days, What did it mean to you ( and hosts), in the early days.
How did you begin to apply it to your sobriety/ recovery.
Did it help?
What the Prayer did for me in the early days ( and can still do today), is remind me of the
importance of acceptance, can bring comfort to me and it also began to develop a Faith in a power greater than myself, the idea that something outside of myself ( or within myself), could help me....restore me to Sanity.
When I pray, I consider the idea that I am not alone, and sometimes this is a very new concept for the new person.
It can also begin to grow an inner humility, an understanding that I am not and can not control everything or everyone in my life.....something that we all tried to do in our addiction!!!
God grant me the Serenity....What does this mean to you?
To accept the things I can not change, how do we do this, why do we need to do this?
Courage to change the things I can.. where can you put the action in ?
Wisdom to know the difference....How does the Program help you to do this?
When I pray, I feel that I am not alone, is this important?, Why is it important for the new guy, or the long timer.
Just think the next time you're in a meeting and you're all saying the Serenity Prayer, just take a moment to consider how many of us all over the world are doing the same thing!! Isn't that wild? Something that brings me such joy and a sense of togetherness and Peace🌟
