Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.
Step Six reads: We were entirely ready to have God remove our defects of character. At this point, you may be wondering how you are supposed to become entirely ready to have your Higher Power (however you define that) remove your character defects? The answer is that you probably can’t and won’t. The best you can really hope for is to try to become entirely ready. If you make an honest effort in this regard, and continue that effort on a regular basis, the process gets easier. But no one has ever worked Step Six to perfection, and no one ever will.
Just for Today
I will try to become willing to relinquish a troubling character defect.
