Todays reading points out how our most "negative thoughts" seem like reality/truth/prophecy.

Accepting that "todays choices" (hence living One-Day-At-A-Time) and trusting our future to

our HP is what will help us grow from that negativity we may be harboring on a daily basis.

Reminder: "Today I will place the future in my Higher Powers hands." "I trust that by turn-

ing it over, it can be used for my good."

Quote: "This time, like all times, is a very good one, if we but know what to do with it." ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Learning to trust and placing my future in my HPs hands has made such a huge difference in my life.

I spend so much less time worrying and trying to control compared to where I was several years ago.

So grateful to Al-Anon/HP!!

Have you found that placing your worries about the future in your HPs hands has helped you as welll?

TGIF MIP Family!!

Thank you Debbie for your service and ESH. Prior to program, the majority of my life was spent in pain, misery, and negativity. It was just awful and I didn't have a clue how to change a thing. Alanon has taught me many lessons for having a much improved life--I'm not stuck in negativity anymore, however I do visit there now and then for a brief visit! Many tools allow me to move along, and give myself a shove in a different direction: Let go and let God, Live and let live, How important is it, Let go or be dragged, etc. :)

Thanks Debbie and Lyne. Gosh yes how much time have I spent imagining the worst possible scenario and then obsessively thinking it will come to pass? When I remember to turn it over, it helps so much. And this is exactly what I needed to read right now because I had a minor run-in with an unpleasant neighbour today and have been obsessively thinking up all of the terrible things that I have decided will result from it. So I am turning it over and feeling relief right now as I type

RE:


Thank you Debbie for your service and all the shares. I started cleaning at 7:00 a.m. and three hours later I asked myself why I need to spring clean every week. I realized the habit was passed on by my grandmother and mother...you know "cleanliness is next to Godliness "... Then I realized I need to let go of old ideas! I have to stop worrying so much about keeping my environment in perfect order. There are other ways I can strengthen my relationship with my HP besides cleaning (lol). Have a wonderful day.
