    I’m not here yet –
    but, in the past … two weeks?
    I’ve had several people approach me and make their amends; for things I had not even noticed, really … the first time, I flat-out asked what is the appropriate response to an amends – lol – I didn’t know how to act!
    Or, what to say.
    One was for a remark made during a pretty hot and hairy game of hearts in the club … heck – I thought we were just playing cards!
    So I piped in and made an amends … for giving such a crappy pass to the same person.
    We laughed … the person felt better, obviously … and I saw clearly that I’ve a long way to go before I’m self aware enough to remember a single remark made in the heat of a really zippy card game … and have the wherewithall to keep my dance that clean.

    Humility … on both sides.
    I’m looking forward to it.
    That’s all I got.



    I really like to work this step!

    By doing a nightly inventory
    I usually can make a sincere amend the next day.

    No big heap of stuff to dig thru.

    It keeps me alert and moving forward.

    Thanks for letting me share.



    It’s a key word – “alert”. I was fortunate enough to attend a strong step 10 meeting recently. It encouraged me to practice this step more carefully, and a few weeks later I’m really feeling the difference.

    Being mindful and aware helps me, so much, in maintaining serenity.
