It's going to be hot again today, and more than hot tomorrow.  We'll get over it, it's that simple.  I hope you all have a great day and that you're in the mood for Monday.

 

A common saying in the program is “If you don’t like what you hear at this meeting, leave it here.” Many people do just that; they leave everything at the meetings. Most of us did not get better by listening only to what we wanted to hear.

What helped us in the long run was listening to things we didn’t want to hear, such as “Work the Steps—you’re no better than anyone else,” and “Don’t take that first fix, pill, or drink.” The hard work of recovery, the things we don’t want to do, are often the very things that make it possible for us to arrest our disease.

Am I listening to what I need to hear?
