“One must not hold one’s self so devine as to be unwilling occasionally to make improvements in one’s creations…We addicted and codependent men too often feel ashamed of our mistakes. It pains us to admit there is room for improvement in what we have done.- Touchstones Meditations for Men
This is exactly how I’ve been feeling since losing focus on my program and that I must change my routine to be truely happy. I thank my HP for blessing me with the strength to continue and reach out to others. ILML today! -Nic
“My Higher Power never makes mistakes”. – You Can’t Make Me Angry p.37
A boulder in my path can be an insurmountable obstacle that ruins my life – something I think about long after I’m forced to take a new path. Or it can be a great opportunity to enrich my life by broadening my horizons. Perhaps the new path takes me out of my comfort zone, but the rewards could be amazing, if my eyes are open to them. Today if life throws me a curve ball, I won’t duck – I’ll hit it out of the park! ILML – James
“It is only when I have experienced enough emotional pain, through failed attempts to fix myself, that I become willing to surrender to God’s will for my life. Surrender is like the calm after the storm. When my will is in line with God’s will for me, there is peace within.” Drop the Rock, p77
This has to be true for me or I am not at peace. Several things lately have made me upset and unhappy. I have to believe that these circumstances are put in my life for nothing less than the best possible scenario for having an amazing life. It’s difficult to see that sometimes; but when I do, I always love my life.
“As we work the Program, we find that the basic antidote for fear is a spiritual awakening. We lose fear of making decisions, for we realize that if our choices prove wrong, we can learn from the experience. Freedom is choosing.” – A Day at a Time, Feb 23
This is good for me. I often am very indecisive for I think the decision has to be the perfect decision. I can go round and round for days and weeks over something. If I trust my higher power and stay connected, whatever decision I make is the right one, it really just depends upon my perspective. Ilml!
