Tradition 2 Al Anon

Tradition 2 - For our group purpose there is but one authoritya loving God as He may express Himself in our group conscience.  Our leaders are but trusted servantsthey do not govern.

What I love about this tradition is that it's a reminder that we each have a voice in all of our affairs. I love looking at the traditions and how I can apply them to both my professional life and my home life. This tradition has taught me so much about listening. I used to listen so that I could then voice my own opinion. Through study of this tradition, I have become better at listening for the sole purpose of hearing what the other person has to say. This has been a huge change for me and something I continue to work on.

The other thing I love about this tradition is that it's a reminder that in a group meeting we should each feel comfortable to bring items up for business meetings and we should each be allowed to voice our thoughts, ideas and concerns at business meetings. 

Does anyone else have a tradition two story they'd like to share?

In gratitude
