Daily Reflections: December 17, 2018

A PRICELESS REWARD
“. . . Work with other alcoholics. . . . It works when other activities fail.”
ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS, pg. 89

“Life will take on new meaning,” as the Big Book says (p. 89 ). This promise has helped me to avoid self-seeking and self-pity. To watch others grow in this wonderful program, to see them improve the quality of their lives. Is a priceless reward for my effort to help others. Self-examination is yet another reward for an ongoing recovery, as are serenity, peace and contentment. The energy derived from seeing others on a successful path, of sharing with them the joys of the journey, gives to my life a new meaning.
