Now that I am open to writing again, I find myself struggling to find the time. My husband and I are in the process of helping my daughter with her move from one house to another. It is 6:45 am and I have to get moving…moving.
But I came to the page to share a little bit of what is on my mind this morning. One I have shared multiple times before out of my world of recovery, the well-worn serenity prayer:
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference.
The other little bit I want to share comes to me also from my world of recovery. It is this:
Accepting life as life is.
It is the hardest thing people in recovery have to do. It is a phrase that takes, for me, had to be branded onto my forehead as I had to live it repeatedly over the last 14 years, and it continues to work in my life as new situations pop up each day.
I am bubbling over right now…I am glad to have the bubblling back. but today I am challenged to accept life as it is again. To the boxes!
