A Senior Moment: When Life Is Beyond Our Control

Published on 9/8/2017

Being grateful for each new day when I wake up I know from experience that life itself holds no guarantees & is ever changing... The life lessons I learned in AA over 26 years ago provided me with an incredible turning point in my life that that included some of the best lessons I've ever learned... I had reached a point in my life when I realized a major change was much needed if I wanted to take back control of my life... I had made the decision to become a survivor instead of accepting the role of a victim...  It all boils down to

The Power of Attitude!

 This was an easy choice, but one that was difficult to adjust to since I usually avoided change by kicking & screaming my way through it... The turning point for me was when the realization that to make this transition possible I needed to change my relationships with the people in my life... Most of them were drinkers & I learned I needed to form new relationships if I wanted my sobriety to last... I had a difficult time with this until three times in one day it was pointed out to me by three different people that I needed to learn the principle of acceptance & that was reinforced by the the topics that people were discussing at the AA meetings I had attended that day... The stage was now set for my transition to begin... I am so very grateful for what I call those "God Nudges", otherwise known to me as "Divine Inspiration"... 

 This weekend I am in the target area of Hurricane Irma who has already wreaked much death & destruction while making it's way to my area... Acceptance has been so ingrained in my way of life that I know I must "Let Go & Let God" for I have placed the outcome in His hands... I have already lost so many things in my life that I used to think I couldn't live without... I've learned like George Carlin used to say, "It's all just stuff"... None of it is so important that I can't live without it... If I lose more, oh well, just maybe it was time for me to downsize...  All I know for sure is today,

"I'm Happy! You Happy Too?"

 The things I'm truly grateful for today are the people who are in my life & I would have a real problem with trying to replace them... My prayer for everyone in the entire area that has been & will be affected by this monster storm, May you seek the shelter of God's love for you... If you read the Bible I would suggest the 91st Psalm which has helped me through many tough times...

 God Bless You & God Bless America...
