KEEP IT SIMPLE #essentialsofrecovery

Archie doesn’t know how to worry without getting upset.

~ Edith Bunker ~

Most of us are like Edith’s television husband, Archie. When we worry, we get upset. Problems seem too big for us. We get afraid. We feel powerless.

What does the program tell us to do when we feel powerless and our life is upset? We look at the problem honestly. Then we ask our Higher Power to help us with the problem. We take it One Day at a Time. We believe our Higher Power will take care of us and help us.

We’ll have problems. That’s life! But we can get through them with care and support. We don’t have to get crazy. We don’t have to make things worse. We can be kind to ourselves and live through problems just fine—with our Higher Power’s help.

Prayer for the Day

Higher Power, help me do what I can today about my problems. Help me stop worrying.

Action for the Day

If I have a problem today, I’ll do what I can— and I’ll leave the outcome to my Higher Power.
