15. One day at a time and one step at a time

And great goddess above, this sucker is not linear, it's choosing to live life on life's terms. If I counted the number of times I did a jig on the steps, I could've been a contender! It's certainly progress not perfection.

The thing I love about all of the meetings I've been to, online and not, is that we are all working, maybe at different stages but everyone is supportive in whatever way is needed.

While this is a self directed program, I'm not sure I would call it selfish - the people at meetings are so supportive to anyone working the steps and quietly solicitous to those tipping their toes in. No advice is given, though, so you're still going to have to figure out much of it yourself, but the serenity to be found in those wonderful souls is worth emulating and as the saying goes, fake it til you make it.
