OCTOBER 12 Reflection for the Day
Many people we meet in Gamblers Anonymous radiate a kind of special glow – a joy in living that shows in their faces and bearing. They’ve put aside their obsession with gambling and have progressed to the point where they’re “high” on life itself. Their confidence and enthusiasm are contagious – especially to those who are new in GA. The astonishing thing to newcomers is that those same joyous people also were once heavily burdened. The miracle of their before-and-after stories and new outlook is living proof that the Program works.
Does my progress in the GA Program serve to carry the message to others?
Today I Pray
I pray that my own transformation through GA – from burdened to unburdened, beaten down to upbeat, careless to caring, tyrannized by gambling to free from gambling – will be as much inspiration for newcomers as the dramatic changes in others’ lives have been for me. May I – like those other joyous ones in the Fellowship – learn how to be “high on life.”
Today I Will Remember
Life is the greatest “high” of them all.
