AA ‘Big Book’ – Quote
Yes, there is a long period of reconstruction ahead. We must take the lead. A remorseful mumbling that we are sorry won’t fill the bill at all. – Pg.83 – Into Action

May I be able to hear the suggestions of those who work with me. May I listen in this next hour and follow the suggestions.
Being with Life
Today, I allow myself just to be with life. Somehow it doesn’t have to prove anything to me or give me any more than I already have to be okay. The lessons I have learned through sincere dedication to my own inner growth, have taught me that I can face my most difficult feelings and still come home to a place of love and acceptance. Life is always renewing itself; nothing lasts, good or bad, and that is just the way it is. It is enough today to enjoy my coffee, to take a walk, to appreciate the people in my life. I can rest in a quiet sort of understanding that this is what it’s all about; all the searching turned up such an ordinary but beautiful thing.
I am enraptured with the ordinary

I work the program, not the problem.
