AA Thought for the Day
February 23, 2021
Our first objective will be the development of self-restraint.
This carries a top priority rating. When we speak or act hastily
or rashly, the ability to be fair-minded and tolerant evaporates
on the spot. One unkind tirade or one willful snap judgment can
ruin our relation with another person for a whole day, or maybe
a whole year. Nothing pays off like restraint of tongue and pen.
- Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, (Step Ten) p. 91
Thought to Ponder
The surest way to unhappiness is to concentrate only on ourselves.
T U F F = Tolerance, Understanding, Fairness, Forgiveness.
