Courage to change

 

Courage to change the thing I can was difficult

I did not have a clue as to what I could change

 

And needed the wisdom of a group of drunks

To show me how much I needed to change me

 

It takes a lot of courage to change but for me I had no choice because

 

I couldn’t take any more of what my life was like when I came in here

 

I got a quote a in my e-mail I don’t know who wrote it

 

If you have one foot in yesterday and one foot in to-morrow you have wasted to day

 

I wasted a lot of days with fear poor me and what ifs

 

Was told to keep it simple and think about what needs changing in your life

 

Well I knew every thing around me need changing people where angry at me

 

They needed to change their attitudes

My creditors where all on my back and really ticking me off

 

They didn't understand that I was trying to get sober

And had no time for their petty complaints

 

They would get their money sometime my landlord also just did not understand

 

After all I was only 2 month behind in my rent

That was not that a big deal now was it

 

My sponsor did not think too much about what I thought needed to be change

 

He said this is not about what other people did to you

 

The courage you need is to change yourself and your attitudes

 

About people places and things because there is nothing wrong with them

 

And if you do not open your mind to the fact that you need to change

 

Everything about you and your attitude towards what is going on in your life

 

Then believe me you will be drunk again

 

Start by asking God to show you what’s right and what’s wrong in your life

 

Remember God answers thru people like the ones in the fellowship

 

Sit and listen to how they change their thinking how they took responsibility

 

For theirs lives making amends as they went thru their past and had the courage

 

To change their attitudes towards all things in their lives

 

This program saved me and gave me courage to slowly start to change

 

It gave me a way to live in today it gave me courage to look at what I could change

 

I still go back to fear and sitting and feeling sorry for myself

 

But the periods are way shorter and when I come to these meetings

 

Someone is always there to help me get the courage to ask for help

 

 it’s not easy to change things

 

But God will give us the courage if we ask

 

And we need the willingness to accept the changes

 

God bless with you all
