Has anyone worked them, or is working them? I did rather thoroughly eight years ago, and every once in a while I remember them and they're still so helpful at putting things in the proper perspective. These two words in particular always jump out at me: powerlessness and surrender. My two good friends!
Hi shine --how've you been these days? Sorry to hear you have to plug your MIL into the equation . Congratulations on seven years though!
Step 1 is so amazing isn't it? It's so great to turn something over when I've been thinking about it obsessively, getting nowhere. I love to then watch things work themselves out, in spite of me :LOL! And #'s 6 & 7 are so incredible.
Cool! I've been dinking around these Mothering boards for a few months - too many forums that apply to me!!! Today I came here for the first time wondering if I might find any other 12-steppers -yea! I'm still a "baby" in the program (Al-Anon), but my sponsor says I'm where I need to be. Glad to have found you all! Even though I'm not through all the steps, the peace and serenity I keep encountering is a powerful motive to "keep coming back"
