Daily Reflection


We must be entirely honest with somebody if we expect to live long or happily in this world.


Honesty, like all virtues, is to be shared. It began after I shared “. . . [my] whole life’s story with someone . . .” in order to find my place in the Fellowship. Later I shared my life in order to help the newcomer find his place with us. This sharing helps me to learn honesty in all my dealings and to know that God’s plan for me comes true through honest openness and willingness.

Keep It Simple

I am the greatest.—Muhammad Ali
We need to believe in ourselves. we’re sober. We’re honest. We’re trustworthy. We’re not making so many problems for other people anymore We do our share. We can even help others sometimes.

We’re glad that others help us. We thank our Higher Power every day. But we also give ourselves credit. We’re working our program. We can handle life as best we can. And as long as we ask our Higher Power to work through us, we are the greatest.

Prayer for the Day:
Higher Power, help me feel proud of the changes in my life.

Action for the Day:
Today, I’ll talk with my sponsor about pride. What is good pride? What should I watch out for?

Daily Horoscope – Cancer

You might feel as if your private life is too public today. You may be required to deliver a report, make an introduction or just be on display when you wish you were working quietly in a more sheltered space. Remember that you are still in complete control of what you disclose and what you keep to yourself. Demonstrating your competence right from the start enables you to meet the expectations of others before you honor your own needs. Shine now; reflect later.
