True ambition is not what we thought it was. True ambition is the profound desire to live usefully and walk humbly under the grace of God. ~ AA World Services Inc. As Bill Sees It. A.A. World Services, Inc.. Kindle Edition.
How many of us faked the facade?
How long did you spend pretending
to be something you’re not?
Did you give someone tacit permission
to abuse you? The victim inside us all
ceases when we stand up in opposition
of that which oppresses or intimidates us.
Gina Greenlee offers this wisdom:
Stand up for yourself by not standing yourself up.
True ambition is finding the magic
inherent in truly working the Steps
and the program of Recovery.
