Every day?

So I finally got a sponsor worth a damn. It’s so nice to be working with someone that doesn’t want to play the games.

My first assignment has no writing. I am to read a little from the big book and pray the third step prayer everyday. An assignment so simplistic in nature that my first reaction was that this is a half assed approach to recovery. Regardless of how I felt, I respect the guy. So I gave it a try.

It turns out that I suck at reading a little from the big book and praying the third step prayer everyday. Most days I fail. It’s such a simplistic task that it seems unlikely that I would fail. I get caught up in the idea of being a success in big things on a daily basis. Have I always been a failure at little things?

I’m not going to have a nervous breakdown about it. I’ll do the best I can today and worry about tomorrow when it gets here.

This little assignment has given me more respect for people that say they do something every day, even a small thing.

  1. I am glad you found a good sponsor!
    I finally understand the message, “Just Show Up!”
    I always did for my teaching job, but when it came to other things, I would not do things because I didn’t feel like it.
    Now I also understand, “Just do it and then you will feel like it!”.
