New Selves Unfolding

Gradually, I began to see another part of me emerging-a grateful me, expecting nothing, but sure that another power was beginning to guide me, counsel me, and direct my ways. And I was not afraid.

Then, as the power began to unfold new selves within me, a greater understanding of my fellowman began. With a new awakening each day -- new strengths, new truths, new acceptance of AA people and people not in AA -- a new world opened up.

The adversities, loneliness, sickness, losses, and disappointments mean nothing now. I'm happy because I came to believe -- not only in God, but in the goodness of everyone.
