COMPLACENCY
Complacency is based on past success. I don’t become what I want. I become where my habits take me. The comfort zone is not one in which to be comfortable. When I believe I have arrived - is exactly when it’s over. We can be complacent and dream our lives away, or we can become aware.

THE CHIP
The 24-hour chip is my favorite as a constant reminder this is a 24-hour program. Tomorrow is promised to no one. A chip in my pocket jingles along with the coinage, keeping me mindful time is not a tool. Takes 31 years to get 31 years. Takes 31 seconds to become a newcomer.

SIGHTS UNSEEN
Sometimes what we see is not with the eyes but with the Soul. This story completes that statement.

"Speak me the Steps," the dying man said to my friend, Paul. To this day, his words echo through these very pages. Please, have a seat and read on.

THE EYES HAVE IT
Saying the amends to a tombstone is nothing like saying them in person. Up close and personal, you can read in the other person’s eyes you really mean what you say. You are following through to amend your ways. They see what you see – the amend-making is more than an apology – you are creating a new beginning. However, if the beloved is deceased, find a safe person to receive your amends. Read in their eyes, what they read in yours. Only Forgiveness and Love and Eye See You.

THE TURNING POINT
One important and especially positive way for turning our lives around comes when we realize we don’t need to wait until Friday, New Year’s, or next week to begin that turn. The big journey begins with small steps that include lots of turns along the way.

WRITE NOW
As we write, we start a genuine flow from the heart, through the arm and out the hand. One way of putting pen to paper is writing letters to incarcerated alcoholics. https://aasfmarin.org/write-now
