  • Step 1 - We declare that we are powerful and that our lives are manageable
  • Step 2 - We understand that we are perfectly sane and do not need to be restored to sanity
  • Step 3 - We know that we have control of our lives and responsibility for our every action
  • Step 4 - We make a searching and fearless inventory of ourselves
  • Step 5 - We declare to ourselves and to another human being the exact nature of our strengths
  • Step 6 - We realize we are solid in character and that we are amazing
  • Step 7 - We celebrate our strengths
  • Step 8 - We make a list of all persons we had harmed, and asked them for forgiveness as we forgave ourselves
  • Step 9 - We make direct amends to such people and to ourselves
  • Step 10 - We continue to take personal inventory and make frequent affirmations of our self-worth and strength
  • Step 11 - Seek through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with ourselves, affirming our will and power
  • Step 12 - Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, practice these principles in all our affairs

    Wow! Loving your blog so far. I have a Masters in Urban Planning and Policy from UIC...so your first post about segregation hit home...studied the history of chicago's racial segregation and was in the program during the midst of the public housing demolition and gentrification of Cabrini Green...

    But this post? Let's just say a recent post on my blog may resonate with you: www.kineticthoughtsfromthesoul.blogspot.com Just started the blog... only two posts...it's the second one I speak of. ;)
