"Continued to take self inventory and when we were wrong, promptly admitted it."

         12 & 12:  Step 10

For me, the 10th step means to keep a check on myself through-out the day.  I pray in the morning to do God's will and not mine and to be used as an instrument.  I use the Serenity Prayer whenever necessary during the day.  I try to remain humble and realize when I have done wrong to someone, or in some way.  I do my best to become willing to make prompt amends, and then do them.  I check myself at night in my prayer and meditation with my God as I understand him.

"Acceptance"

From the Alcoholics Anonymous Big Book

Pp 449, 450,451. A. A. World Service, 1976, N. Y.

"And acceptance is the answer to all my problems. today. When I am disturbed, it is because I find some person, place, thing or situation---some fact of my life---unacceptable to me, and I can find no serenity until I accept that person, place, thing or situation as being exactly the way it is supposed to be at this moment. Nothing, absolutely nothing happens in God's world by mistake..."

 

 

I usually give out a homework assignment called the Emotional Relapse Plan, that goes along with the 10th step...Check it out!
