Alanon Step 6 (5-24-2018)

Step six:"Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character

C2C reading page 390. An important part of the sixth step is practicing gratitude. The more I give thanks for my life as it is, the more I can accept the healing that allows me to change and grow
My share .
It's interesting to note that this step simply asks us to become ready to have our defects removed. I know when I first looked at the list of my defects, I felt that they were old friends that protected me from the pain in the world. I was not sure how to become ready to release them . My sponsor suggested that I simply continue going to meetings, living one day at a time using the slogans to stop reacting, gossiping and criticizing others. That was a huge step in my becoming entirely ready. The most interesting thing that developed was that I finally did see my defects in action and realized, for the first time how destructive they were not only for myself but to others .These defects were not my friends.nor did they protect me, it was then that I realized I had become entirely ready. Living one day at a time focused on myself and filling my  attitudes  with  daily gratitude list was all it took .aww

Step six questions
What character defects  have I had to overcome to ask a sponsor for help?
What slogan could remind me to find a substitute for negative behavior?

Am I able to see challenges as opportunities to practice new character traits?
Can I make a commitment to share in Al-Anon meeting the power of this step? .

Do I clearly  understand the concept of readiness?

What fears block me from being entirely ready?
Which defects of character also contain assets?
What can I do to practice a positive trait?

What positive traits did I want to develop?
Can I substitute that for a defect that I want to have removed?
