i am the one who must truly respect and look out for my own recovery. surely, i have trusted friends, in and out, of my recovery who may take concern for my well-bein so far as my recovery is concerned, but in the end, it is i, who must remain on guard. when i am focused on my own personal recovery, i stand to remain responsible for the recovery program itself. even when i may struggle, i do not have to do it alone because of the trusted friends i have grown relationships with. just as they are there for me, i am there for them. this is where the active guardianship comes into effect. we stand together for one another, for the program of recovery. the relationships i have with others in recovery are buildin blocks for the relationship i have with self. as friendships with others evolve, so does the relationship i have with self. remainin spiritually aware i get to partake in the ongoin lives of others, hopefully bindin us closer together. as i keep the relationship and communication open with my HP, i get to receive His intuitive notion and reasonin, not only through meditation, but from the people He brings into my day. livin close with others, as my HP directs, helps me to build and strengthen bonds that dont leave me lonely, frustrated, and bewildered. i need the gift of balance if i am to really create anythin in my life that is fruitful and lastin. when i listen, whether it be to my HP, others, or self, i get the opportunity to practice understandin, compassion, empathy, and spiritual awareness. this all helps in that balance i mentioned. for me, mere sobriety is not enough, i need to live the program of recovery. with all of this, as i grow in self-confidence, so does the program grow in hope and spirit. without growth or change, neither i, the people around me, nor the program have a chance to grow in strength or assurance. sobriety without action is angry, frustratin, lonely, and confusin, i need to be a part of it or i dont get to grow in spiritual awareness. 1 day @ a time...
