A is for Abstinent–Was I abstinent today? Did I follow my food plan? Did I abstain from my defects of character? Did I follow my mental and spiritual “plans” as well?
E is for Exercise–Did I “move” today in mind, body and spirit? Did I urge myself to “stretch” today, even a little bit?
I is for I, myself–How did I treat/care for myself today? Did I rest when I was tired? Did I eat regular, nutritious meals? Did I spend time with my Higher Power? Did I have fun?
O is for Others–How did I treat others today? Did I fall into old habits of thinking, acting, and/or believing towards others? Do I owe any amends? Is my side of the street clean?
U is for Uncover– Did I uncover any new feelings, information, ideas, or connections today? Have I spent time in prayer and meditation with my Higher Power in order to receive new input? Did I write? Did I read program materials? Once I became aware of any new information/insight, did I stop to process it?
Y is for Yes– Did I say “YES” to life? Am I living with/remembering regrets from the past, especially the last 24 hours? Did I engage in activities that promoted my zest for life, take a chance, or have an adventure?
Reviewing the day through this lens helps keep me on track with my program; reduces the duration and intensity of my resentments; and keeps me accountable to my Higher Power, myself, and others.
Many of us have expressed an interest in getting together to fellowship.
We began having this discussion online via Zoom. Usually during the social time after a meeting. But we know there are so many more of you who may want to also weigh in. So, please complete the below poll with your preference.
The location that would best fit is Frederick Coffee Company in downtown Frederick’s Shab Row. This allows for a variety of activities. Walking the shops, sitting and talking, having a coffee or tea, or even a snack/meal.
Thank you so much for attending the Region 7 2021 Convention. We hope you enjoyed the event. As promised, the recordings are now all available on our website for you to listen to – either as a repeat for those workshops and keynotes that were incredibly powerful for you, or for the first time because you missed them live. Please enjoy.
