When I am disturbed, it is because I find some person, place, thing, or situation—some fact of my 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. Nothing, absolutely nothing, happens in God’s world by mistake. Until I could accept my alcoholism, I could not stay sober; unless I accept life completely on life’s terms, I cannot be happy. I need to concen- trate not so much on what needs to be changed in the world as on what needs to be changed in me and in my attitudes.

Problems at work used to drive me to drink. Now I have issues with co-workers and once again I feel that same feeling…. It angers me to hear the truth that it is my attitude that has to change and not trying to change others but I know it’s true. Only then will I find that peace I need.

I too struggle with this Renee.Some days I can easily just let go and let God.Others I feel like I can’t breath.Just take a minute and pray.Look at the situation and see what would God have me do.Good luck and be strong don’t let anyone take your sobriety from you.

My serenity is directly proportional to my level of acceptance.
