The Glass Door

“… my obsessive focus on my problems was preventing me from seeing the solutions.” — In God’s Care

Last night, during my AlAnon meeting, my sponsor shared about the past and the glass door. He said he shuts the door but looks back through it when he needs to remember what choices he wants to make today. I think problems are kind of like that. I look at the problem to see if I can apply a solution, I’m 100% willing to do the footwork and equally willing to turn it over and await for inspiration if the solution isn’t readily apparent. Relentlessly focusing on the problem, and discussing it with others, is old behavior. Today I can look through my glass door into the past to see that I don’t want to do that anymore. ILML!
