Today’s thought from the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation is:
We can stop making mountains out of molehills
Learning to let go of the choices other people make takes away much of the angst we have grown accustomed to. Letting go of the outcome of all experiences, even those that involve us, frees our minds from the needless worry that keeps us stuck. The more we focus on a problem, our own or someone else’s, the bigger it gets.
Why do we worry so much? For some of us, it has become a habit. Lucky for us, by sharing the Twelve Step journey we can learn how not to worry. The solution is to have faith that our Higher Power will take care of us. And the others in our lives have their Higher Power to care for them. Learning to give up our old ways of “doing” life unburdens us profoundly. The time we’ll gain will allow us to do what we really need to do.
My perspective today will be healthy. I’ll let go and let God.
