“You can’t live a perfect day without doing something for someone who will never be able to repay you.” – John Wooden We might not think we’re selfish until we come into the rooms of AA and realize almost everything we ever did was selfish. Of course, we may have done nice things for people, but it was likely with the deep-down expectation that they owed us something. One of the most rewarding things we will have in recovery is to give and to help without expecting anything in return. Today we help with just the thought of what a beautiful thing it is to be able to give selflessly.
Today, may I always look at the opportunity to help others as a blessing I get to do and not something I have to do. May I ask my Higher Power to put someone in my path that I can help today.
