Today’s thought from the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation is:
If addiction is about control, recovery is about letting go. If addiction is about denial, recovery is about accepting what is.
As we spend time in the program, we learn something unexpected and amazing. Life is so full of twists and turns, it’s easier to follow along than to try to straighten them out. It’s easier to have fewer expectations because, after all, we have no control over the future or the present.
Can I practice letting go?
Higher Power, help me to be open, flexible, and accepting in my recovery.
