Willingness

 

I needed the willingness to change but was real hard thing to do when I first got to AA

 

Surrender with out any reservation took forever to find I needed total accept and surrender

 

The biggest danger of reservations is I cannot go to any length to stay sober

 

Going to any lengths is a question of is I willing to change thru the steps

 

I wanted everybody and everything else to change so my life could be perfect

 

Quickly found out it doesn't work that way I had to go to any lengths to find a way out

 

And this had to be without any reservations of my doing it my own way

 

I needed willingness to change me and my attitudes not everyone else and their attitudes

 

All I had to do is become willing to change most of the ways I was thinking and start to listen

 

They told me life is very simple not easy but simple and what we give we get back

 

I learned I was responsible for every experience in my life the good and the worst

 

Every thing I do today is creating a new future for me free from the disease

 

My experiences show in the way I think and the beliefs I hold dear to me

 

What I choose to believe in today can expand and enrich my world

 

Each day is exciting joyous free and a hopeful experience of just living life

 

Living in the same world with the same set of circumstances

 

I experience life differently today when I became willing to change my attitudes

 

And accept God into my life changes were God never judges or criticizes me

 

He accepted me, as I knew I would change my life

 

But that would not happen till I was willing to let go of all my old behaviors

 

Today I try very hard to keep a positive attitude and try not to dwell the negative

 

I just try to stay in today trying my best to do Gods will for me today

 

God bless each of you
