Sometimes

This picture reminds me of my tendency to analyze every facet of my life.
As most of us know, it is not the best practice to use in the program.
Once again I'm reminded of a slogan " don't analyze, utilize".
Of course this is usually easier said than done; our natural tendencies
are not that easy to change.

I was once advised by a fellow at a meeting who told me, "don't think, don't
drink, and go to meetings". At that time in early recovery, it probably was
good advice. Part of the difficulty early on, was the constant comparison I
was doing, to other's experiences. That seemed to lead me to thinking, wow
I'm not as bad as him, or I'm way worse than her.

Gradually, I have learned to find something in common with nearly every
person in the rooms. I'm reminded that no matter what age, occupation,
race or creed, we all share that feeling of hope and freedom.

My usual comment has been, regardless of our station in life, we all end
up in the same boat; we just have different size oars.
