AA Thought for the Day
January 4, 2023
We enjoy moments in which there is something like real peace of mind.
To those of us who have hitherto known only excitement, depression, or
anxiety—in other words, to all of us—this newfound peace is a priceless gift.
Something new indeed has been added. Where humility had formerly stood
for a forced feeding on humble pie, it now begins to mean the nourishing
ingredient which can give us serenity.

Thought to Ponder . . .
Humility is telling the truth about yourself.
Humiliation is when someone else does it for you.
