AA Thought for the Day

Review Our Day
When we retire at night, we constructively review our day. Were we
resentful, selfish, dishonest or afraid? Do we owe an apology? Have
we kept something to ourselves which should be discussed with
another person at once? Were we kind and loving toward all? What
could we have done better? . . . After making our review we ask God’s
forgiveness and inquire what corrective measures should be taken.

My name is Tom and I'm an alcoholic. Day after my first AA meeting I was given this suggestion by the guy that became my sponsor. The very simple program they advised me to follow was that I should ask to know God‘s will for me for that one day, and then, to the best of my ability, to follow that, and at night to express my gratefulness to God for the things that had happened to me during the day. And that was to become my introduction to steps 10 and 11. Some weeks later my sponsor had me cut page 86 right out of my Big Book and pin it to the wall beside my bed. Did I mention that my sponsor was high on suggesting steps 10 and 11 as a way of life? Over the years I have found that when I would NOT do that inventory of my day when going to bed, things do NOT go well. I do not sleep well and when I get up in the morning, it is with a hangover of the emotional kind. Then it is very difficult to start my day on the right foot. So step 10 has become a must do for me. I simply become a person that no one wants to be around if I don't. Thank you for being here for me.
