When I first took Step Three, I barely understood it, but working the rest of the Steps illuminated it for me. By letting go of “my way,” I was opening myself up to a happy and purposeful life of love and service that “my way” had not previously permitted. I have never regretted that decision! Today, I turn back to Step Three whenever I realize I am struggling to impose “my way” on others or even on myself; I know how that story turns out, and it isn’t pretty. These days I want a new story—one with a less predictable ending. When I am doing my best to take care of myself and serve others, I can be happy regardless of my current circumstances. Today, I am joyous and free in my recovery.
