WHAT I LEARNED: 1. My attitude, beliefs, & choices can lead me to all my problems or all my solutions. 2. Sometimes I have to remember: “Is this happening to me, or for me?” 3. Is it odd… or is it God? — To see the full-size pic of this quote (and others), visit: http://www.instagram.com/calchatfan1.
WHAT I LEARNED: The longer I’m in the Al-Anon program, the more I’m released from the bondage of self!
WHAT I LEARNED: If parents bring their kids to the doctor when they have an illness so they can get better , why don’t they bring them to Alateen since alcoholism is also an illness? …just saying…
WHAT I LEARNED: An act of service is an act of kindness. …How have I been kind today?
WHAT I LEARNED: I may never get over the grief from losses in my life, but with the help of Al-Anon, I can get through them!
WHAT I LEARNED: Happiness is like a butterfly. The more I chase it, the more it eludes me! 2. It never occurred to me that the word “help” begins & ends with the letters HP! 3. Bring my problems to my Sponsor. Bring solutions to my group.

WHAT I LEARNED: Step 2 is an invitation to humility. …And I’ve already RSVP’d! – P.S. – See May 24th from the daily reader: “One Day at a Time” (item # B-6).
WHAT I LEARNED: How many people would love me if I would just let them?
WHAT I LEARNED: Sometimes when making financial amends, my priceless serenity can come dirt-cheap!
WHAT I LEARNED: The longer I stay in the program, the better my childhood gets!
WHAT I LEARNED: 1. You can’t make sense out of nonsense. 2. Going to meetings are great, but it wasn’t until I did service work, that I discovered fellowship.
WHAT I LEARNED: Although some of my issues may have my parents’ names on them, the solutions have mine on them!
WHAT I LEARNED: When I react… I regret.
WHAT I LEARNED: 1. I have to keep my tools spiritually sharp. 2. How Al-Anon grew: a coffee pot & a resentment.
WHAT I LEARNED: Sometimes it’s ok for me to say “no” to service, because then that gives someone else a chance to say “yes” & they were the better fit!
