How Important is it?

Is it worth my Serenity

Whats to Be will Be

We Are all Different

Al-anon’s Three C’s: Alcoholism:  You didn’t CAUSE it, you can’t CONTROL it, and you can’t CURE it!

3 A’s ~ Awareness, Acceptance, Action

ANGELS EXIST but sometimes, since they don’t all have wings, we call them FRIENDS.

This Too Shall Pass

Say what you mean but don’t say it meanly.

Expectations are premeditated resentments.

“Alcoholics pick up the bottle; Al-anons pick up people.”

Take the blame out of me & all u get is bla bla bla.

“If HP brings you to it, HP will walk you through it.”

“Change your attitude change your life.”

Insanity is doing the same things over and expecting different results.

Don’t go to the hardware store for bread.

My serenity is proportionate to my acceptance.

Recovery is self-discovery.

Happiness & knowledge increase only as we share it with others.

Change my attitude, change my life.

EGO – Edging God Out

Courage is fear that has said its prayers.

Progress not Perfection.

“My serenity is proportionate to my acceptance.”

“You can’t control the wind but you can set your sails.”

“The mind is like a parachute, it works best when open.”

“Thank You God for reminding me not to interfere with Your Divine Plan.”

“Listen not to criticisms or accolades both take you off your path.” A. Einstein

“Most folks are as happy as they make up their minds to be.” B. Franklin

If you are looking in the past or the future, you’re not living in the now. The present is a gift. The gift is now.

Live for today. Live for each and every new moment. Be gentle with yourself.

Fight for yourself, you are worth it, if you dont who will?

Let it begin with me: When anyone, anywhere reaches out for help – let the hand of Al-Anon & Alateen always be there and – Let it Begin With Me.

In recovery were all like infants, first we crawl then we can stand. We take steps & learn to walk before we can run free.

FACE IT: Become aware of the thinking/behaviour that is a problem

TRACE IT: Try to establish where you think it comes from and why

EMBRACE IT: Accept that you did the best you could with what you had at the time but it no longer needs to be that way. Forgive yourself.

ERASE IT: The thinking/behaviour no longer serves your best interests. To erase it, ask God to remove your shortcomings. Refuse to participate in the same thinking and behaviour patterns. You may ‘slip’ from time to time but thats ok, it’s a process and it’s about progress not perfection.

REPLACE IT: Nothing exists in a vacuum therefore if you remove something you need to put something else in it’s place. Where possible fill the void with Gods love. You can replace negative thinking/behaviour with positive, healthy responses. Use the tools of the program. Sometimes we try something new and it doesn’t work out for us, that’s ok too, just try something different.

LET GO & LET GOD ATTEND TO THE DIVINE PLAN

Thank You God for reminding me not to interfere with your Divine Plan

LET HIS NAME BE ERASED ~ JEWISH PRAYER TO RELEASE *EVIL DOERS/ ACTIONS
