Aug. 1, 2014 – Step by Step

Today, grant me the wisdom not to pervert “Take It Easy” into procrastination or neglect of the new responsibilities that sobriety has given me. “Take It Easy” affords me not only the luxury but the necessity to tend to my own spiritual and emotional care lest I be unqualified to help someone else with their own. Adversely, “Take It Easy” does not bestow “permission” to put off or ignore responsibilities to myself, others and the 12th Step edict to carry the Program’s message to the alcoholic who still suffers. The Program shows me how to balance the scale between taking it easy and procrastination, and if it’s weighted down by taking it easy at the expense of responsibility to myself and others, I am as irresponsible dry as I was when I was drinking. Today, I seek that balance between taking it easy all the time and giving all my time to everything and everyone else. And our common journey continues. Step by step. – Chris M., 2014
