Eighth Steppin'

So I did another 8th step today with my sponsor. Turns out I'm the only person I need to make amends to. All the others are 10th steps. So how do I make amends to myself? Well, my sponsor had me write a list of my assets. It was hard at first. You know it's not "nice" to toot our own horn. But after awhile it got easier and my list grew, and so did my self-esteem and self-worth. I really have come a long way. I am a nice person, even good. I'm honest, open, and willing, ready to help, ready to serve, and humble... Well, I don't know about that, not now that I have this list! Ha! It's always a fine balance, this recovery thing. But I do know I'm in a better place than I was, even just a month ago. And I owe it all to my program, my Greater Power, and help from others like my sponsor and program friends. Thank you!

I am so happy to see that you have been blogging again. You have no idea how much your blog helps me. There aren't that many Al-Anon bloggers. And you obviously get Al-Anon. If you want to quit blogging, just think about the fact that there are probably many others like me. Thank you. Anonymous One
