Stick with the Winners?

Stick with the Winners.
You have to give it away to keep it. ~ Recovery Slogans

“Stick with the Winners.” and
“You have to give it away to keep it.”
It sounds contradictory to say these together, no?
Add in that the newcomer
is the the most important person in a meeting,
and it all feels hopeless, right?
Wrong. We need newcomers
and they and people coming back
after weeks…months…years.
They are the people we can help
by giving Recovery away
so it can stay vital in our lives.
We give it away to winners as well,
for we all need each other
and grow from conversations
both giving and absorbing.
Winners revitalize us, complete us,
move us forward.
