   December 3                                           Vision without limits

       "Perhaps for the first time, we see a vision of our new life."

                                                            Basic Text, p. 35

                           ----=----

   In our addiction, our vision of ourselves was very limited.  Each day, we
   went through the same routine: getting, using, and finding ways and means
   to get more.  And that's all we could reasonably expect for the duration
   of our lives.  Our potential was limited.

   Today, our prospects are changed.  Recovery has given us a new vision of
   ourselves and our lives.  We are no longer trapped in the endlessly gray
   routine of addiction.   We are free to stretch ourselves in new ways,
   trying out new ideas and new activities.  In doing so, we come to see
   ourselves in a new way.  Our potential is limited only by the strength of
   the Higher Power that cares for us-and that strength has no limits.

   In recovery, life and everything in it appears open to us.  Guided by our
   spiritual principles, driven by the power given us by the God of our
   understanding, our horizons are limitless.

                           ----=----

   Just for today:  I will open my eyes to the possibilities before me.   My
   potential is as limitless and as powerful as the God of my understanding.
   Today, I will act on that potential.
