“Sometimes the sign that I have actually gotten humble enough to ask my higher power to remove a shortcoming is that I can laugh about it. Suddenly a past action or decision of mine seems ludicrous and I can stop taking myself so seriously. When this happens, I realize that my higher power has lessened the impact of another shortcoming.” – Courage to Change 3/13/15
I like this quote in that if we continually work the program on a daily basis we can laugh at things that we used to think were so horrible or took so seriously at one point.
What I would like to do is those times that I am taking life so seriously, is to remember that everything happens exactly how it is supposed to. When I am confused, frustrated or anxious, to remember that I don’t have to be, but instead I can be grateful for the experience and lessons that I will learn which will better my life.
It really is all in my best interest — whether I like it or not.
The more I stay connected to my higher power on a daily basis the more I am able to do this — though that’s much easier said than done. I’m going to do my best to stay in the solution another day. ILML!
