“As we think, so we are.” We are gifted with the personal power to make thoughtful choices and decide who we are. ⁠⠀
Our minds work powerfully for our good. And just as powerfully to our detriment, when fears take over and intrude on all our thoughts. The 12 step program has given us a positive personal power; it lies in the relationship we have with God.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
💗For anyone struggling today a reminder of the promises:⁠⠀
⁠⠀
🔆Promise 1: We are going to know a new freedom and a new happiness⁠⠀
🔆Promise 2: We will not regret the past nor wish to shut the door on it.⁠⠀
🔆Promise 3: We will comprehend the word serenity.⁠⠀
🔆Promise 4: We will know peace.⁠⠀
🔆Promise 5: No matter how far down the scale we have gone, we will see how our experience can benefit others.⁠⠀
🔆Promise 6: The feeling of uselessness and self-pity will disappear.⁠⠀
🔆Promise 7: We will lose interest in selfish things and gain interest in our fellows.⁠⠀
🔆Promise 8: Self-seeking will slip away.⁠⠀
🔆Promise 9: Our whole attitude and outlook upon life will change.⁠⠀
🔆Promise 10: Fear of people and economic insecurity will leave us.⁠⠀
🔆Promise 11: We will intuitively know how to handle situations which used to baffle us.⁠⠀
🔆Promise 12: We will suddenly realize that God is doing for us what we could not do for ourselves.⁠⠀
