AA ‘Big Book’ – Quote
When the spiritual malady is overcome, we straighten out mentally and physically. – Pg.64 – How It Works

‘Live and Let Live’ sounds like a simple phrase, but in fact it is imperative for us to practice. When we try to control the actions of others, it only leads to anger, resentment, fury, and finally to a slip.
Higher Power, increase my tolerance so I can ‘Live and Let Live’ so that I ‘Don’t Let Live and Die!
There is peace within me that I can draw on each and every day. I will remind myself to take a few moments today, to center myself. I will breathe. I will sit. And when I go about my day I will carry that lovely feeling of inner peace around with me. There is nothing in my day that is more important than my serenity. Today, I will pay attention to the myriad of ways in which I am thrown off balance. When I feel myself losing my serenity, I’ll take a moment to center myself, to breathe, to connect with that part of me that is eternal and unchanging. I’ll remind myself that when I can calm my body, mind and spirit, I interact differently with the people, places and things of my day. I am here. My spirit is here. My serenity is at my fingertips. I am in charge of my deeper experience of living. I connect with my divine self and the diving energy that is ever present.
I give myself the gift of inner peace.

As I go about my day I trust all my decisions to my positive inner guide. Nothing from the past will block me or hold me back. Today is mine to use for growth and recovery. I love myself today.
