alanon Step 6 (10-29-2017)

Step 6
Were entirely ready to have God remove all our defects of Character

C2C page 31 I accept the fact that I need help in being restored to sanity) achieve this without help. We need to be ready. The shortcomings to be removed and do what we can to be prepared, but we lacked the power to heal ourselves only my
higher power can do that

My share. Step six

In the beginning of this alanon journey I made myself entirely ready to have my shortcomings removed by  continuing to attend meetings, sharing with my sponsor reviewing the first five steps and praying  to accept the fact that I cannot cure myself.  I knew this to be true  because I had  tried , unsuccessfully. . I trusted that when I was ready, my higher power, would help me. The program had not failed me in the past and  I accepted  that I needed to keep practicing and showing.  I actually became entirely ready to have my defects removed as I kept showing up and saw them at work in my daily life.. I saw how destructive my sarcasm and negativity really was and prayed  continually for them to be lifted. One day I discovered myself responding.differently
and that was when I realized that HP have done for me what I could not do for myself. I'm grateful I  kept coming back

Step six questions 

Do I clearly understand the concepts of readiness?

How do I know if I'm ready? How do I encourage those I sponsored  to work the step?

Other than let go and let God. What other Al-Anon slogans or tools can help us?

Can I ask God for the willingness to be ready ?
Which defect of character also contains an asset? 

am I grateful that I now know the God of my understanding?

Other than let go. How can I look at all these characteristics our first point of view?

Can I make a commitment to share in Al-Anon meeting however the steps?
