When we surrender, we "give up," putting the focus where it belongs: on our higher power. But it isn't giving up in the way we normally define it. The action is more like "giving over." In love. It is offered to us in love, by Love, for love. And we accept it the same way: in love, for love, out of love.Recovery is all about surrendering and acceptance. One day at a time. Recovery cannot begin without surrendering ones will.
