For the Long Haul

You’re either in it for the long haul or you’re not. ~ Crystal Gayle

I’m a compulsive overeater. I was ten years ago
when I found these rooms and I am now.
If I’m alive ten years from now, I’ll still be.
It’s like the Big Book says, What we really have
is a daily reprieve contingent
on the maintenance of our spiritual condition.
Every day is a day when we must carry the vision
of God’s will into all of our activities.
“How can I best serve Thee —
Thy will (not mine) be done.”
These are thoughts which must go with us constantly.
We can exercise our will power along this line all we wish.
It is the proper use of the will.
I’m in this for the long haul!
