I Can’t Perfect Life

“… we were trying to arrange life to suit ourselves.” – AA, pg. 88

I used to think I could arrange everything so that my life would turn out perfectly. Years of attempts led me to the rooms, where I finally fully surrendered to a higher power, admitting I can’t perfect life – no matter how hard I tried. I made a deal with my new higher power: I’ll do the footwork if you guide my thoughts, attitudes and actions, and life. 

Since my higher power is love, kindness, joy, goodness, compassion, gratitude and service, my life is now guided by these ideas and has turned out profoundly better than I could have ever orchestrated on my own. I surrendered (and continue surrendering) and now ILML!
