KEEP IT SIMPLE #essentialsofrecovery

Little things affect little minds.

~ Benjamin Disraeli ~

Before recovery, we liked things our way. We thought every new thing we tried should go right the first time. Little problems could really upset us. We let little things spoil our day. We let little things affect big things—our entire lives. And our bad moods affected people around us.

Funny how we have fewer of those problems now. The program is teaching us to let go. What a relief when we know we don’t have to control every little thing! How nice when things get done without our “expert advice”! We are starting to see what’s really important, and what’s not. One promise of the program is coming true: we know how to handle situations better.

Prayer for the Day

Higher Power, help me see what is really important for me today. Help me to stop worrying about what’s not.

Action for the Day

When I’m upset. I’ll ask myself, Is this problem really so bad? If I can’t change it, I’ll let go.
