From the Daily Reflections of December 16;

Doing the right things for the right reasons — this is my way of controlling my selfishness and self centeredness. I realize that my dependency on a Higher Power clears the way for peace of mind, happiness and sobriety. I pray each day that I will avoid my previous actions, so that I will be helpful to others.
