Keep it Simple

"The best way to cheer yourself up is to try to cheer somebody else up. -Mark Twain

Sometimes it does no good to try to "deal" with our feeling. For the moment, we're stuck. We can only see things one way. No matter what anyone says, we're closed up. For the moment, but this puts our sobriety at risk.

How do we stop self-pity? Focus on someone else. When we really want to help someone else be happy, we'll ask our Higher Power's help. Then things start to change, because our good deeds always come back to us. Remember, service always keeps us sober.

Prayer for the Day:
Higher Power sometimes I get stuck in my old ways. Help me change my focus at those times. Help me stay sober.

Action for the Day:
I will think of a time when I was stuck in bad feelings. How did I get out of that spot?
