weaver71 With out own gifts, I even corrected spell check, it just had to write it it's own way. All our creations take a life of their own.

OpenMind24hours I think another saying I once heard that would also apply: "we all pack our own parachutes."

VICourageous We also take our own paths. Even if a parent tells you to take the right path you might just be on your own and take the left..Hahaha

ricart70 I like it. I saw an adjusted version of this that Samuel Jackson said in a movie.  "If you keep doin what You've always done you'll keep bein what you've always been"  ;))

OpenMind24hours Another one I heard at a meeting a while back that really fits in this category: "what's down in your well comes up in your bucket". (I'm old enough to remember wells and buckets lol)

weaver71 That makes it 45% of your mind to break even, right? Pretty good odds.

OpenMind24hours Those are great odds! My favorite Yogi-ism: if you come to a fork in the road, take it.

clean_in_ks So true...the line that jumped off the page at me when I read this very same ODAT message today was:
"People only accept and use the advice they're ready for."

OpenMind24hours You're absolutely right Weaver. We were talking about praying for sobriety every morning at last night's meeting. Some do, some don't. It all boiled down to packing our own parachutes when working the program. We hear what's worked and what hasn't...

OpenMind24hours Connie, I liked that line also. In the beginning it took me 8 months to even fathom forming a partnership with someone like a sponsor. It took the rest of my life to follow his direction. And my sponsor's direction was coming from HIS sponsor! Onward...
