4th Step Workshop, By The Book

Although I'm only working the 3rd Step right now, "Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God, as we understood Him", I've started a five week, one day a week, 4th Step workshop. Since we're starting with the 3rd Step, the timing couldn't be better.

We go straight to "How It Works" in the Big Book and are reading the whole chapter. I've learned a few things about the 4th Step that broke some of my misconceptions. Like the 4th Step is not about admitting your mistakes. It's all about action.

One of the presenters said something very memorable, "I took actions I didn't believe in, and got results I couldn't deny." This is starting to happen for me.

I would like to add more, but my time on the Internet is limited today. I'll add links to this post later, but will add more content in a separate post.

Without Wax,

Working the program is more important than your blog or even your computer as odd as that may be... you can 12 step computers at a later date. :)

I can get work this program without either. It's the trigger of loosing the laptop that I worried about, not the actually loosing of the laptop.

The journaling helps me though.
