May you live all the days of your life. —Jonathan Swift—
The truth is, life hard. Accepting this fact will make it easier. Remember how well it worked in Step One?
Once we admitted and that we were powerless over alcohol and other drugs, we were given the power to recover.
It works the same with life’s problems. We can spend a lot of energy trying to avoid life’s hardships. But our program
teaches us to use the same energy to solve our problems. Problems are chances to better ourselves and become more spiritual. We have a choice: we can either use our energy to avoid problems, or we can face them. When we stop wasting energy, we start to feel more sure of ourselves.
Prayer for the Day: Higher Power, life is to be lived, both the easy and the hard
parts. Help me face and learn from it all.
Action for the Day: I’ll work at not complaining about how hard life is. I’ll take
the same energy and us it to solve problems I may face.
