From time to time I get an unsettled feeling. I feel like my life should be changing faster. I try to take all the control back..I realize not all of you on here has an addition, but I wanted to share something I try and rememeber during these unsettled times.
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 concentrate 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.
Big Book pg. 417.

I agree. Concentrate on you and do this at your own pace, in your own time, one day at a time. You cannot change yesterday. You can change today. You cannot do anything about tomorrow until it gets here. Happiness is our own responsibility, not anyone else's. And this takes strength and courage.

A wise woman once said to me, "what we resist...persists" I have found that to be true with relationships and work...
