Promise Three of PA:As we learn to commit each task to our Higher Power for divine ideas and guidance, confidence will replace fear, enthusiasm will replace dread and self esteem will replace self loathing; we will take the next right action, as they are required easily and effortlessly.

Have a Great Proactive Day!

Thanks for starter lennon, pa promise 3 different from aa 12 step promises p 84

+word serenity and we will know peace. No matter how far down the scale
we have gone, we will see how our experience can benefit others. That
feeling of uselessness and self-pity will disappear. We will lose
interest in selfish things and gain interest in our fellows.
Self-seeking will slip away. Our whole attitude and outlook upon life
will change. Fear of people and of economic insecurity will leave us. We
will intuitively know how to handle situations which used to baffle us.
We will suddenly realize that God is doing for us what we could not do
for ourselves. Are these extravagant promises? We think not. They
are being fulfilled among us — sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly. They
will always materialize if we work for them. This thought brings
us to Step Ten, which suggests we continue to take personal inventory
and continue to set right any new mistakes as we go along. We vigorously
commenced this way of living as we cleaned up the past. We have entered
the world of the Spirit. Our next function is to grow in understanding
and effectiveness. This is not an overnight matter. It should continue
for our lifetime. Continue to watch for selfishness, dishonesty,
resentment, and fear. When these crop up, we ask God at once to remove
them. We discuss them with someone immediately and make amends quickly
if we have harmed anyone. Then we resolutely turn our thoughts to
someone we can help. Love and tolerance of others is our code. And we have ceased fighting anything or anyone- "


clement ci - day 169 attempting abstinence, 89 from self

I like this promise.
My only confidence is in the Lord coming to my rescue, again and again, not in myself.
the term "self esteem" doesnt fit with my christianity. I am valuable because God loves me. that's more than plenty, Infinte God has chosen to love me.

Abstinence from unplanned time.

  • The one thing, the only thing, i can do impulsively is write something on my todo list.
  • The one thing, the only thing, i can do off plan is recovery, something to maintain my sobriety, when tempted. I have come to believe that it is more important to maintain sobriety than to get things done.

Abstinence from relying on self. AA Big Book says to rely on God. Quoted in my bookmarks : scroll down to "AA Big Book on fears : relying on God not self-reliance:"

not gotten so frustrated when little thing after little thing went wrong
not gone on 56min surfing bender at end of night (danger zone for me)

THINGS I AM GRATEFUL FOR (everything i "did well" comes from god, either thru gifts he's given me or the way he's transformed me)

Hymn "It is well with my soul"

When peace like a river
Attendeth my soul,,
When sorrows like sea
billows roll,
Whatever my lot,
Thou hast taught me to say
It is well,
It is well,
With my soul.

It is well,
It is well,
With my soul.

that i stayed on plan pretty much all day, and accomplished much.
that i was flexible, and used small blocks of time.
my off-plan bender could have been worse.
