In todays reading the author challenges the reader to change or "experiment" with one issue

that they maybe having on a daily basis. The goal is that if we change our habit of responding

to a particular difficult situation in a more positive way we may discover that we can turn

"failures" into a more positive learning experience.

We are reminded that "Just for today I will look for ways to enjoy life."

Quote: "Just for today I will find a little time to relax and realize what life is and can be;

time to think about God and get a better perspective on myself." ~ Alcoholism, the Family Disease

I have tried this many times and it never fails to amaze me, especially when it comes to dealing

with the alcoholic in my life. If responding to AH entails having to justify or protect my ego,

that is an automatic cue to me to pause and QTIP.

Have you all found positive results from changing your approach and outlook when dealing with

a difficult issue that tended to repeat itself regularly?


"Forgiveness doesn't excuse bad behavior, but it

does prevent bad behavior from destroying your heart". ~unknown

Thanks Debbie for your service and share. With my A these concepts are almost a daily challenge. I get lots of practice! My recent challenge however is with my almost 12 yr old granddaughter. She has turned from a cuddly, always happy to see me child, into a hormonal, and somewhat confusing tween. I miss the child but must embrace her newfound changes as she is growing up. Just yesterday I was glad I had brought my QTIP to transport her to a horseback riding lesson. I need to change my expectations as her life is changing. Her friends are replacing both Grandmas and I have to let go and let God. I'm reminding myself how much I wanted to be with my friends at that age and family took a back seat. Live and let live.
