Knowing Ourselves

As we come to know ourselves—our preferences, needs, and goals—we gain strength and integrity. The Power greater than ourselves gives us the insight to know who we are physically, emotionally, and spiritually. ~ L., Elisabeth.

I went through life sure everybody else
had a much clearer idea of the whole rigamarole
than I! But now I understand most if not all
felt just as lost as I did. I’m quite sure one of the best
approaches to catching up with others…
or to learning I was in the majority
and others felt as lost…was finding
the rooms of Recovery! In that setting of honesty
we do learn our preferences, needs, and goals,
and we gain the insight to understand
who we are in all three areas in which we grow,
physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
