📕RecoveryJournals.org creates "Our Story" together a page a day.
Start journaling the unique book series that makes you an author and promotes better thinking by you writing the other half.
Hang out with us as we show the recovery life mixing in today’s world in a variety of ways with supportive social media and our website.
Today’s Recovery Journal Meditation is about the most-real relationship we have. It is about the One that goes everywhere we do –whether we like it or not.

Day Twenty-Seven -Guidance to Respond Better
God help me, I can’t stand the world today. Just help me not say or do mean things to myself or another. If that is possible.

This relationship with our Higher Power knows our deepest darkest secrets –and stays patiently till we come around wanting to respond better. We get battered through the years because we are resistant to change. The hope is -that we will communicate our anger and release it through acceptance. This relationship between us and our Higher Power teaches us to love our surroundings for better or for worse. We are capable of doing this. So, Do it.
In recovery, we are told the only thing we have to change is everything, that feeds stinking thinking -and we snarl at this. –Then we start to change -starting with that snarl. Now.
Heading into my day I am reminded to be gentle with my encounters in today’s world. I choose to not nit-pick it apart –and separate myself from it. I will remember to be a part of the solution and not add to the problem with a nasty attitude. You can choose to do the same. Choose to be less difficult in some way.
Focus today's recovery meditation on Step Two - We came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.
The Second Step says -"We came to believe" that means at this moment maybe we don't believe that we can make it through what is in front of us -so Step 2 teaches us to keep it simple and reach for a Power Greater than ourselves that does believe we can.
Homework: Google Step Two to gain more insight on how Step Two can help you.
