I thought I would share today's reading! I agree with it 100% I would just add 1 more thing GRATITUDE. I have to continually remind myself to be grateful. It's hard a lot of days but, even on the really bad days I have something to be grateful for. Today is one of the easier days for me; today and Everyday I'm grateful I get to be Dawson's Dad. I hope everyone else has a blessed day today!

- TODAY, I'M FREE
This brought me to the good healthy realization that there were plenty of situations left in the world over which I had no personal power – that if I was so ready to admit that to be the case with alcohol, so I must make the same admission with respect to much else. I would have to be still and know that He, not I, was God. — AS BILL SEES IT, p. 114
I am learning to practice acceptance in all circumstances of my life, so that I may enjoy peace of mind. At one time life was a constant battle because I felt I had to go through each day fighting myself, and everyone else. Eventually, this became a losing battle. I ended up getting drunk and crying over my misery. When I began to let go and let God take over my life I began to have peace of mind. Today, I am free. I do not have to fight anybody or anything anymore. From the book Daily Reflections Copyright © 1990 by Alcoholics Anonymous World Services, Inc.
