Positive Thought for Today

"When we look back, we realize that the things which came to us when
we put ourselves in God's hands were better than anything we could
have planned."

AA Thought for the Day
(courtesy AAOnline.net)

July 14, 2007

I do know that my life is different now.
I haven't had a drink since I came to AA. I have fewer resentments,
and I don't spend much time thinking about the past.
I've found that my experience can be of help to other people.
I have come to believe that hard times are not just meaningless suffering
and that something good might turn up at any moment.
That's a big change for someone who used to come to in the morning
feeling sentenced to another day of life.
When I wake up today, there are lots of possibilities.
I can hardly wait to see what's going to happen next.
I keep coming back because it works.
