Recovery Meditations ~ Experience ~ One Day At A Time ~ March 2, 2011

"I'm not afraid of storms . . .

for I'm learning how to sail my ship."

Louisa May Alcott

:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:

We spend our youth living and

experiencing life. At some point our

experiences become lessons. We who are

compulsive eaters weren't aware of that

when we began to eat out of

control. Deep down, however, we were

living and experiencing food

issues. These issues later would become

our lessons.

I am so grateful that the Twelve Steps

made it possible for me to look at my

past experiences and see the reality

they presented. If not, I may have

continued life in denial.


I will use the lessons I have learned to make the quality of my life better.
