#138 Freedom to Be Me (May 18) - Alan S (Philadelphia, PA)
May 17, 2021
Michael L. & Lee M.

Alan S. celebrates his 19th year of continuous sobriety and shares on the daily reflection "Freedom to Be Me".

FREEDOM TO BE ME

If we are painstaking about this phase of our development, we will be amazed before we are half way through. We are going to know a new freedom and a new happiness.

— ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS, p. 83

My first true freedom is the freedom not to have to take a drink today. If I truly want it, I will work the Twelve Steps and the happiness of this freedom will come to me through the Steps – sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly. Other freedoms will follow, and inventorying them is a new happiness. I had a new freedom today, the freedom to be me. I have the freedom to be the best me I have ever been.
