AA ‘Big Book’ – Quote
And acceptance is the answer to ALL my problems today. When I am disturbed, it is because I find some person, place, thing, or situation – some fact of life – unacceptable to me, and I can find no serenity until I accept that person, place, thing, or situation as being exactly the way it is supposed to be at this moment. – Pg. 417 – 4th. Edition – Personal Stories – Acceptance Was The Answer

There have been many disappointments, trials, and tribulations for you, but you don’t have to get loaded. There will be many more, but you don’t have to get loaded. There is nothing so bad that getting loaded won’t make it worse!
Higher Power, of my understanding, show me that picking up will only make my life more painful in the long run. No matter how high the immediate high, the low will be more than I can bear.
Today, I do not accept other people’s truth as my truth. Even if what they believe seems better or more obvious, I need to give myself credit for feeling and seeing what I feel and see. Learning is meaningful to me as it relates to or is understood within the workings of my own mind. Without something in me making it relevant, learning is very disconnected. I am the learner behind the information; I am the seer behind the seen. I learn by direct experience.
I learn to trust the perceptions that I gain from my own observation of life.

Almost all anger is some form of control-either you trying to control people, places, or things or them trying to control you. If it’s you controlling them, stop it. If it’s them controlling you, stop it.
I can’t do HP’s will, my way.

Today I know I am not the best or the worst. I am just me. God is guiding me to become the best me I can be and that is very exciting.

He said he was going to kill himself. He owed these heavies some big gambling debts. I suggested he approach them with an amends deal; offer to pay them back a bit at a time. He said, no he couldn’t, if he went to them, they’d kill him. I said; ‘Well, nothing to lose, at least you wouldn’t have suicide on your mind.’ – Chuck C.
