I was pretty sure I read this earlier than 1991, but I see from the list that there is a mix up in author names, so I went with the Hazelton entry. This was a book I read every morning for 2 years. I journalled from it. It was part of my journey toward emotional and spiritual wholeness.

The problem with sharing a partial list of what I have read over the years is that I want to go back and reread them and I will never have the time, but this book I pick up every once in a while just to remind mys

This book is exceptional for inspiration and motivation. There is an inspirational piece for each day of the year. The author wrote this book from the perspective of a recovering addict, so there are many times where she will reference the path/program. However, even if you are not on the path to recovery, this book has so many pieces of motivational greatness. My book has underlined sentences and my own notes scribbled in the margins. I have bought a copy for my mom... it's just that good. I de ...more

Funny thing is, this book was gifted to me by a man in 1990 who didn't realize it was written for women. It took me a year before realizing it myself! I laughed out loud the day I realized it! I did notice it had a lot of mentions that I thought were bit tilted toward females, but I just went with the flow. This was one of the best books I ever read that helped me to see and deal with my issues in life in a way I understood. Maybe it fed my Feminine Side, I don't know. But I highly recommend thi ...more

i got clean & sober 11/19/89 and a friend gave me this book as a gift. i read it every morning when i get up with my 'one' cup of coffee and it's a good way to start the day and it has really helped me. i came here today because i was looking for a new one-mine is old and highlighted, written in, to the point where pages are falling out. it's recovery based and god based, i am a christian so i like that and when it says 'program'....i insert 'god'.......i used to do meetings but now i know-it's ...more

This book is a meditation book for each day of the year. It’s uplifting and it was great to share it with my mom and read it aloud to her. Although it says it is for women I believe it is also for men too!

Great morning meditation book. This seemed to have some interesting tailoring between all different types of twelve step recovery from alanon to over eating. It was always a very helpful take on the day.
