Global Steps AA Meetings

AA PREAMBLE

Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for AA membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. AA is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy; neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.

Keep It SImple - April 10th

Keep It Simple - April 10

"You cannot prevent the birds of sadness from passing over your head, but you can prevent them from making nests in your hair." - Chinese proverb

Life is full of feelings.  We can be happy, sad, mad, scared.  These feelings can come and go quickly.  Or we may hang on to them.  As recovering (alcoholics) addicts, we used to hang on to those feelings that made us feel bad.  We let them make "nests" in our hair.  We used our feelings as an excuse to drink or use other drugs.

Now we're learning to hang on to our good feelings.  We can let go of anger, hurt, and fear.  We can shoo away the birds of sadness and welcome the birds of happiness.

Prayer for the Day - Higher Power help me become a "brid watcher".  Help me learn from my feelings.  And help me let go fo the bad one so I can be happy.

Action for the Day - If I need to get rid of the sadness or anger that I'm hanging on to, I'll ge thelp from my sponsor, a councelor, or a clergyperson.
