As I was saying...

I tend to put unrealistic expectations on myself, then of course they are never met, then that gives me permission to hang from my cross saying, "why me lord?"


I heard some good things at the meeting last night. It's a Big Book study on Friday nights. It's nice to get into the book and discuss what was read. I have a strong desire to seek a higher power, and if that means using the group on the way, that's alright. I'm taking this piecemeal, as I can only chew so much. I know now that if I try to take too big of a bite, I'll choke.


I'm feeling grateful today for AA and the people that go there. They know me there. I can be myself and that's ok today.


Nothing Grows in the Dark from page 303 of The Daily Reflections:


"We will want the good that is in us all, even in the worst of us, to flower and grow."

Unrealistic expectations.
It seems that so many of us are guilty of this - to the extreme. It is by recognizing this tendency and praying about it, that I can be relieved of this terrible, wasteful emotion.

It looks like you're doing good! Lots of growth can come from those Big Book studies too. I hope you enjoy the study!
